The Mamba Micro X Crawler Edition ESC is a great option for weight conscious, competition oriented crawlers and trail runners in vehicles weighing up to 8lbs on 2S or 3S. It can also be used in slightly more aggressive applications like rock racing and hill climbing on vehicles up to 4lbs. This SPECIAL EDITION of the Mamba Micro X features motor solder posts with factory installed 16 AWG wire and 4mm female bullets for the motor connection; it also includes the matching 4mm male bullets to attach to your motor. Your ESC will come with V2.02 firmware factory installed that has been enhanced for rock crawling and sensored operation.
Mamba Micro X features the addition of a programmable Auxiliary Wire that allows you to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings such as torque control, and max throttle, and fine-tune the performance of your ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel on the receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but is programmable via Castle Link. Once you have programmed the functionality of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a compatible transmitter. Try out the brand new Crawler Mode for incredible versatility!
The Mamba Micro X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such as ESC temperature, voltages, and RPM can be monitored to ensure performance advantages and spare you the “unknown” parameters that all R/C enthusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides another level of protection and can increase performance.
