Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro 1/10 Sensored/Sensorless ESC w/SmartSense
[CSE010-0066-00]
Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro 1/10 Sensored/Sensorless ESC w/SmartSense
James Thomas - Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! Wednesday, November 17, 2010
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 damaged the batteries. Castle has been great at replacing them. I did not turn them in for warranty repair because the fault was partly mine. I still think they are overly touchy in this respect as I have not had this problem with other ESCs. Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me? One of the cars I have is an Associated B44 which does not have enough room for cooling with the Mamba Max Pro. This caused the early demise of the Pro though I am now running a Tekin RS and it is working great. Not sure if I should give the Mamba Max Pro 2 stars or 3 though I opted for 3 as I do like them.
