This is a 1/8th scale Monster X ESC with a 1800Kv sensored motor from Castle Creations. The Mamba Monster X is Castle Creations latest 1:8 scale and Monster Truck controller capable of 2-6S LiPos, with an 8 amp peak BEC - and it's waterproof*, letting you run your vehicle through rain, snow, mud, you name it! This is an ideal upgrade for any 1:8 scale buggies, truggies, and on-road vehicles, as well as 1:10 scale monster trucks up to 15lbs. It also comes included with an efficient 30mm ESC cooling fan. The Mamba Monster X also features updated Audible Alerts that will notify you of any possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose problems in the field.
The Mamba Monster X now also comes paired with Castle's brand new Sensored 15xx series motors. Castle Creations has taken their award-winning 15xx series motors and added sensor capabilities. Now you can have all of the torque and performance you've come to expect from Castle with more control than ever before! Castle Creations still uses the same high-quality components as their sensorless motors, such as ultra-thin stator laminations, high-temperature sintered neodymium magnet, and high RPM ABEC3 bearings
Why sensored? Some drivers and applications are better suited for sensored motors. Some drivers need smoother throttle control in racing environments. When coming out of a corner a sensorless motor may not provide optimal throttle control and can cause the motor power to surge a bit. With sensored motors, the throttle will feel smoother and more linear that allows for more precise throttle management. If you are simply bashing and not racing on a track, you will most likely not experience the full benefits of a sensored power system.
The Mamba Monster X also comes fully equipped with data logging and telemetry capabilities. The Monster X can capture and record performance data from your last couple of runs, which can easily be downloaded via a Castle Link USB programmer or Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) for review. If you have a Futaba T4PX transmitter, you can purchase a Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (CSE010-0152-00) to gain access to real-time data such as ESC temp, voltages, and RPM. With all of this data, you'll be able to monitor the performance of your motor and ESC to ensure performance advantages and to spare you from the unknown parameters that many RC enthusiasts experience at some point.

Battery connector. Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connector (CSE011-0053-00) recommended.
*Although Mamba Monster X and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, they are not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.
**The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.
