I am a BIG Castle fan I have run everyhting from 18scale to 8thscale and always used Mamba's for my ESC's I have this one in a SC10 and it is great I have only been running it for about a month but so far so good and I would'nt worry even if I did have a problem as castle has alway's stood by there products. I give it 5star's becasue it is IMO the best Racer and basher ESC out stay's cool and has power to push up to a 6s.. I have seen guy's run thses in 8thscale buggies I wouldnt but you can tha[More…]

Great little ESC for the money. I have been using one in my 1/8th scale for over a year with no problems. High current servos just require the use of a capacitor on the BEC rail. The BEC has no problems powering a Savox 1256 with 7000uF of capacitance on the 3rd channel. Software is easy to use a well organized. The smaller size is a great fit for some of the newer 1/8th conversions that don't have much room (Tekno V4, Ofna 9E). Works very well powering Tekin sensored motors, Castle sensor[More…]

I've been running this in my XR10 for a few months now (minus the included fan) and I can barely make the heat sinks get warm. I've relied on CC BECs for the past few years and they've never let me down. This is my first CC ESC and I am extremely pleased with it.
When it comes to build quality, tech support, and customer service, I can't think of anyone who equals Castle Creations. I've found tech support and customer service to be two very weak links in most RC parts manufacturers, but no[More…]

This thing is working perfectly. Im running it in a jammin scrt10 with a ballistic 550 4.5 turn novak motor and the power is great even on a 20c lipo. Watch out slash boys, I'm coming up behind you!

First brushless experience and its been great! Set up was easy and worked out of the box. Fan spins only when pushing the ESC. I have it hooked up to the speed passion 17.5t sensored stock motor and it works flawlessly. Coupon code for free Castle link is a bonus. After switching from a brushed motor, this delivers so much more torque and had to gear way up on my XXX-T CR, running a 82/27 now and doesnt even get warm. Only con would be short wires for the motor but it is built for their own moto[More…]

I had this ESC im Losi scte. Did the job fine. Only complaint is there are no solder tabs, so if somthing comes undone its not an easy fix. My son ripped my wires out of the ESC and it was a pain to fix. I have upgraded my ESC to a Tekkin rx8 which is a better fit for a heavy 4x4. I will be running my MMP in my FT SC10 2 wheel drive along with a Team Orion 17.5t. My MMP is also the Losi labeled one that came with the RTR but its exact same thing. I also changed my motor to Tekkin pro4 4600 and W[More…]

This ESC is by far one of the best items I have ever bolted onto my Pede 4x4. With the Castle Link you can program it to your driving style. I run this in my Pede 4x4 and it made the truck extremely forgiving with its ability to tune the braking as well as the motor drag (let off the throttle and it automatically puts a drag on the motor slowing you down) Prior to this magnificent little black box my truck would front flip non stop under almost any form of braking. I have it powering a NeuCastle[More…]

This is my ESC of choice. I rarely stray away. With the castle link you have a ton of adjustability for anything your doing with your rc. I wasted lots of money buying crap esc's. Just get this and be happy.

Great product! Very durable and applicable to a variety of applications. Have used mine in several vehicles and sensored as well as sensorless. Also, I have used the MMPro with 550 and 540 cans. It has performed flawlessly everytime. Wish the set-up were a little different. Does not set-up well with a Spectrum DX3R Pro transmitter.

Great ESC. Upgraded from Sidewinder Sct after the sidewinder crapped out and have not looked back. Do not get if you don't have a windows computer handy. Apple users beware.

Great Speed Controller, something I learned the hard way though is that the internal BEC is not the best, we paired this ESC with a Hitec HS-7940TH and the speed controller wasn't able to provide the needed power to the servo causing many problems, the solution was a Castle Creations External BEC which is great but there was some frustration in figuring it out.
I would still recommend this ESC just look into to your servo choice and see if you too need an External BEC.

Put this esc in my Losi Comp Crawler after my p.o.s. Goat 3s started going whacko on me. This esc can handle twice the power without the need for an external bec and 2nd switch like the Goat did. Makes for a much neater install. Programmed easily to my DX3R Pro without any issues and the Castle Link software is extremely easy to use even for those who are not computer saavy, like me. Software has a crawler profile which was very helpful. Great number of features for the money. So far has worked [More…]

I have to say I'm very happy with Castle and the Mamba Max. I have always run a sensor type motor and I love how smooth this ESC is at at speeds. This thing has a ton of power capability because the cooling fan rarely runs and if it does, it's at a slow speed. The Castle Link is a must have to quickly program the esc and for 25 bucks it's a no brainer. The main thing I would like Castle to address is making the ESC more robust from a dirt and moisture standpoint. Now, I haven't had any probl[More…]

i own 2 of these mamba max pros. one in my ae t4 with epic 8.5 motor, it never gets over 114 degrees completely happy with this one. the other is in my ofna jammin scrt10 with epic 4x4sc 4.5 motor, my only complaint is the fan had some issues with it and started not working which it started reaching temps of 190 and 200 degrees. this is the ONLY time i had cogging..replaced fan with a new one...WORKS GREAT AGAIN!! field card for programming makes it sooo easy for trackside changes!

Great ESC for the $. Running 1 in the SC10 and the other in the B4. (yes the B4) Had to mod the body to fit this monster, but the fan looks cool cut out of the body. Field Programmer is awesome. More tweeking available by PC. The 1st one I bought, the switch sucked. Cut the wores and soldered them together and has been running 100% since with my 10.5 Thunder Power. The 2nd had no issues with a switch. Only thing the could make it sweeter is if you could solder your own wires to the boar[More…]

I haven't had this too long but I have it paired up with a Novak Ballistic 550 4.5T motor running on 2S 13/54 gearing on my Slash 4x4. I replaced the Castle SCT ESC with this then decided to give the Novak motor a try.
The ESC fan never seems to come on but I know it works because I've given it power directly. Basically the ESC has ran so cool it never needed to come on. My truck goes very fast and smooth. I haven't had issues with this ESC which is more than I can say for the one I used to [More…]

Great product but I was pretty disappointed when the power switch got stuck and broke off when I tried to turn it on but besides the fact that I have to buy a new one now it's pretty good

This ESC works great and I've run it in all kinds of conditions.. in an OFNA with a 550 can ballistic 4.5, then put it in my AE SC10 and its running strong, Runs a damp track and has had its share of wet clay on it without fail. My only complaint is the size, great for the bigger vehicles but if your running a 4 wheel buggy then it will be a very tight fit.
It has outlasted my 2S kinetic.. Havoc Pro SC.. I did notice however a little more kick from the latter two ESC's so I think there maybe [More…]

I have several, 4 or 5, of these and in the main like them. The C.H.E.A.T. mode is really nice and is a kick in the pants to my LRP and Tekin sensored motors. The Castle Link software is easy to use and does a great job of tweaking the ESC. HOWEVER, I find the ESCs to be very susceptible to even small amounts of moisture! I have had to replace a couple of these! The one I am sending back now melted the solder on a Deans Ultra connector the instant I plugged it into a 3s LiPo pack. Not sure if it[More…]
