Castle Creations 1/18 Mamba Micro X WP ESC/5300kV Motor

This is the 1/18 Mamba Micro X WP ESC/5300kV Motor from Castle Creations (010-0147-02)  $99.99

Extreme Power and Control in an Extremely Small Space

The Mamba Micro X puts Extreme Power, Extreme Control and Extreme Fun in a relatively small footprint – small enough for most 1:18th scale vehicles. The waterproof Micro X is suitable for 2WD or 4WD vehicles over 1.5 lbs and up to 2.25 lbs.

The Micro X and one of our “mighty-mite” 0808 brushless motors is simply an awesome brushless power system upgrade for Mini-LST, Half-Eight, Mini-Quake and Spyder vehicles. In following with the other Mamba X Series ESCs, the new Mamba Micro X features even more extreme performance and capabilities than the model it replaces. The new Micro X receives a heavy-duty BEC (battery eliminator circuit) to handle today’s high-draw digital servos and also features a programmable Auxiliary Wire (AUX) that allows the user to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings, such as torque control and max throttle, directly from a compatible transmitter. This allows you to fine-tune the performance of the Micro X to meet changing driving conditions.

  • 1/18th scale ESC and 5300kV 4-pole brushless motor
  • Fully programmable
  • For 2-3S LiPo
  • 2A peak BEC
  • Auxiliary wire functionality
  • Adjustable throttle, reverse, brake, and torque
  • Waterproof—do not submerge
  • Torque limit
  • Low battery voltage cut-off
  • Timing adjustment
  • Punch control

Sensor Support
New to the Micro X is the ability to run sensored brushless motors (with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness). Now, a whole new group of R/C enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the power, control and fun of a Castle power system in your vehicle. The Micro X is cable of running on 2S up to 3S LiPo power with a highly-efficient heat sink design to keep you running cool, even when pushing it hard in mud, sand and other heavy power applications.

Castle Link: Industry-Leading Software Functions and Tuning

Small but mighty, the Micro X can be “custom tuned” via Castle’s industry-leading Castle Link software. The Micro X includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB device. This allows access to the full programming suite of adjustable settings so that enthusiasts can tune and tweak the performance of their Micro X-equipped vehicle to their preference.

Mamba Micro X ESC + Motor Combos:
The Micro X is available as a ESC only or in an ESC + Motor combination featuring the small but very, very powerful 0808 4 Pole brushless, sensorless 20mm motor. The powerhouse Castle 0808 motor is available in 4100KV, 5300KV or 8200KV ratings.
