|New Mamba Max Pro 1/10th Sensored & Sensorless ESC: Castle is Ready
Castle, the leader in brushless technology for RC cars, is
pleased to announce the release of our new Mamba Max
Pro brushless ESC featuring SMARTSENSE™
operation. SMARTSENSE brings the best of sensored
and sensorless ESC together to create the ideal controller for serious 1/10th
scale enthusiasts. Operating at up to 6S, Mamba Max Pro can handle nearly twice
the power of the market standard Mamba Max!
Castle Builds A Sensorless
Hey, we’re never going to just go with the flow, so we’ve
built the best of both worlds into the new controller.
- SmartSense uses the motor sensors to start the motor and
then it switches over to Castle’s ultra powerful and efficient dynamic
sensorless mode which boosts motor efficiency. Simply put, you’ll get more power
and less heat from your motor.
- Sensored Only mode runs sensored motors using sensored
- CHEAT MODE, Castle’s High Energy Advanced Timing allows
users to electronically advance their sensored motor’s timing to extreme
settings. This can often yield just that extra bit of power needed to win the
race. Be careful – there’s never a free lunch, extra power comes with extra
OK, now I’m confused. Is Sensored
better than Sensorless?
The answer is that for most users, Sensorless
operation is still better.
- Castle’s Sensorless controllers offer best in class start
up and braking which are fine for most users. Sensored only motor operation
cannot deliver maximum efficiency.
- Sensors are terribly inaccurate for motor timing purposes
as the motor’s magnetic fields change under load or at speed; that’s where
Sensorless operation shines.
- Sensorless is also just more dependable. There are
fewer wires and connections that need to survive the incredibly rough treatment
most RC cars and trucks endure.
Some guys do need sensored operation, mainly because the
racing world’s rules require it, but also because it can offer slightly better
start up and braking performance. Mamba Max Pro offers the ultimate in
flexibility: use it with all your 1/10th motors, sensored or sensorless!
I’m over the shock of the sensor
port. Tell me what else you’ve packed into the Mamba Max
- 6S (25.2 volts) max input voltage
- Switching BEC powers your radio and servo all the way up to the
6S max input. Users may select the output for any voltage between 5V and 7V.
- Durable case and cooling fan to protect and cool the controller
during hard off-road action
- Ready to Run: Mamba Max Pro is ready
to run out of the box.
- Castle Link Compatible: Like all
Castle controllers, the Mamba Max Pro may also be “tuned” for the drivers’
preferences in the throttle curve, brake strength, reversing modes and more.
Access these features with the CASTLE LINK USB
connector (sold separately) and a PC for even more versatility.
Mamba Max Pro is available
individually or in combos with Castle’s top quality CM36 4600kv, 5700kv, 6900kv,
7700kv, or 9000kv 36mm brushless motors.
