Putting the X in Extreme!
Mamba XL X is our latest 1:5 scale controller capable of 3S - 8S LiPo, with a 20 amp peak BEC. This is the perfect upgrade for 1:5 scale RC hobby vehicles (including gas to electric conversions) weighing up to 30 lbs for 2WD and 25 lbs for 4WD. The XL X has an auxiliary wire, increased BEC amperage capability and more capacitors to protect against ripple current.
The Auxiliary Advantage
Mamba XL X features the addition of a new, programmable AUX wire that allows you to make ?on-the-go? adjustments to several settings such as torque control, and max throttle, and fine-tune the performance of your ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel on the receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but is programmable via Castle Link. Once you have programmed the functionality of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a compatible transmitter. Mamba XL X also features updated Audible Alerts that will notify you of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose problems in the field.
Mamba XL X can capture and record performance data from your last couple of runs, commonly referred to as data logging. This data can be downloaded via the Castle Link USB programmer; you can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to access both wires into a single Castle Link connection. You can then analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize both performance and battery life.
Telemetry Ready (with Futaba T4PX transmitters!)
Mamba XL X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such as ESC temperature, voltages, and RPM can be monitored to ensure performance advantages and spare you the ?unknown? parameters that all R/C enthusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides another level of protection and can increase performance.
