Castle Creations Mamba Micro Pro 1/18th Scale Brushless Combo w/0808 4-Pole (5300KV)
Mamba Micro Pro, our popular high performance Micro controller, just got a new partner - the amazing new 0808 4 pole brushless sensorless 20mm motor!
Castle invented 1/18th scale brushless, and now we are raising the bar. Speed controls are only as good as their components. Castle uses only the latest and best. These aren’t always the least expensive. We can tell the difference and we are sure you will too.
FETS are the little black things that are the heart and soul of all ESCs. FETS have gotten better, just like memory chips and digital cameras. FET capacities are going up, so should ESC performance. That’s the story behind Mamba Micro Pro. Thousands of drivers around the world have enjoyed the Mamba-25, now you can have more amp capacity just because the FETS have improved.
Why stop there?
When you design and build your own products, you don’t have to settle for tired compromises. Castle took the better components and made them work together in a better manner to lower resistance – resistance results in heat, heat limits controllers’ power. Castle has designed the circuit boards in a manner to reduce resistance and has added a highly efficient heat sink to help the controller keep it’s cool.
Mamba Micro Pro is priced the same as the old Mamba-25, yet it offers up to twice the performance.
Just like the original Mamba-25, the following Mamba Micro Pro settings can be changed with the transmitter:
- Low battery voltage cut-off warning
- Brake strength
- Lockout reverse mode
- Timing adjustment
- Start-up mode
- Reverse speed
The Mamba Micro Pro ESC is Castle Link™ compatible too – drivers can use their Castle Link and a Windows PC to tune and tweak additonal settings, such as:
- Throttle response curve
- Brake response curve
- Saved profile setup files
- Punch control
- Separate brake strength
- Separate reverse power
Mini Size, Massive Power.
Castle’s 0808 series motors may resemble other motors on the market, but that’s where the similarities end. They utilize the same 4 pole technology Castle uses to toss around 15 pound monster trucks like rag dolls and wheelie 30 pound Bajas on demand. With the increased efficiency and torque gained from a 4 pole design they will take just about anything the user can throw at them. Just imagine what this little 20mm powerhouse is capable of. They’re a mini’s worst nightmare…and the competition’s.
The 0808 series motors are intended for on-road and off-road applications running up to 3S LiPo and weighing in at up to 2.5lbs. Castle offers these motors with both of their race proven Micro ESCs to suit all applications. For 2WD and lighter 4WD vehicles (<1.5lbs) Castle recommends the Sidewinder Micro ESC, and for those with a bit beefier 4WD vehicle (>1.5lbs) they suggest the Mamba Micro Pro ESC.
