This is the Castle Creations Sidewinder 3 Waterproof 1/10 Scale Sport ESC and Brushless Motor Combo, with an included Neu-Castle 1406 7700kV Brushless Motor. Castle’s Sidewinder ESC, the leading 1/10 scale sport brushless ESC, is now waterproof. The Sidewinder 3 can power crawlers on water filled trails, Short Course Trucks through rain soaked parking lots, and AWD vehicles on rips across muddy fields. Drivers can follow their irresistible urges to drive in the mud or stomp their truck in puddles without damaging their controller.
Designed for 1/10 Scale
The Sidewinder 3 is a great fit for 1/10 off-road, on-road, and rock crawlers running up to 3S LiPo batteries. It sports updated circuitry for faster response time and improved reliability. As always, the Sidewinder 3 offers industry-leading software functions and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately).
