Slide on over to Sidewinder Micro for awesome Micro performance at an incredible price! Sidewinder Micro is the upgraded model from the class leading original Mamba-25 controller that has dominated 1/18th scale since its introduction. Sidewinder Micro takes advantage of technology and price breakthroughs that only Castle can bring to the market. You won’t see this everyday, performance jumps ahead AND the price goes down. That’s the Castle commitment to our drivers.
Improved Performance The Sidewinder Micro offers everything the original Mamba-25 did, and more:
Sidewinder Micro offers a huge step up in power handling from the original Mamba-25.
Sidewinder Micro offers refined software for ultra smooth starts.
Sidewinder Micro now controls brushed motors too. One controller DOES fit all!
Programming Options Just like the original Mamba-25, the following Sidewinder Micro settings can be changed with the transmitter:
Low battery voltage cut-off warning
Lockout reverse mode
The Sidewinder Micro ESC is Castle Link™ compatible too – drivers can use their Castle Link and a Windows PC to tune and tweak additional settings, such as:
Throttle response curve
Brake response curve
Saved profile setup files
Separate brake strength
Separate reverse power
Mini Size, Massive Power. Castle’s 0808 series motors may resemble other motors on the market, but that’s where the similarities end. They utilize the same 4 pole technology Castle uses to toss around 15 pound monster trucks like rag dolls and wheelie 30 pound Bajas on demand. With the increased efficiency and torque gained from a 4 pole design they will take just about anything the user can throw at them. Just imagine what this little 20mm powerhouse is capable of. They’re a mini’s worst nightmare…and the competition’s.
The 0808 series motors are intended for on-road and off-road applications running up to 3S LiPo and weighing in at up to 2.5lbs. Castle offers these motors with both of their race proven Micro ESCs to suit all applications. For 2WD and lighter 4WD vehicles (<1.5lbs) Castle recommends the Sidewinder Micro ESC, and for those with a bit beefier 4WD vehicle (>1.5lbs) they suggest the Mamba Micro Pro ESC.
