Please note: X series ESCs use a custom sensor harness and are not compatible with regular ones! This ESC comes with a sensor wire adapter and we also include a free Sensor Wire for Castle Mamba X Series with the purchase of a Castle Creations Mamba Micro X Crawler Edition!
If you need JST leads to power a device but do not want to have a battery plug soldered, please order a set of JST leads separately.
For 1/10 scale vehicles: Only the Holmes Hobbies Puller Pro BL 540 Stubby 2200kv, Stubby 2700kv, and Revolver Snubnose motors are recommended for use with this ESC. Larger or higher KV motors are not recommended.
The Mamba Micro X Crawler Edition 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 Crawler Edition is suitable for crawlers up to 8 lbs and rock racers up to 4 lbs. The Micro X Crawler Edition is 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 Crawler Edition features even more extreme performance and capabilities than the model it replaces. The new Micro X Crawler Edition 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 Crawler Edition to meet changing driving conditions.
The Micro X Crawler Edition has the ability to run sensored brushless motors. 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 Crawler Edition 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.
