Castle Creations' Mamba Micro X puts Extreme Power, Extreme Control and Extreme Fun in a relatively small footprint. This package combines the Micro X and a Castle “mighty-mite” 0808 - 4100Kv brushless motor to create the ultimate brushless power system upgrade for Mini-LST, Half-Eight, Mini-Quake and Spyder vehicles. Small enough for most 1:18th scale vehicles, the waterproof Micro X is suitable for 2WD or 4WD vehicles over 1.5 lbs and up to 2.25 lbs.
Following suit with the other Mamba X Series ESCs, the Mamba Micro X features even more extreme performance and capabilities than the model it replaces. The Micro X receives a heavy-duty BEC (battery eliminator circuit) to handle today’s high-draw digital servos and also features a programmable Auxiliary Wire (AUX) that allows the user to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings, such as torque control and max throttle, directly from a compatible transmitter. This allows you to fine-tune the performance of the Micro X to meet changing driving conditions.
Sensor Support The Micro X features the ability to run sensored brushless motors (with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness). Now, a whole new group of R/C enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the power, control and fun of a Castle power system in your vehicle. The Micro X is cable of running on 2S up to 3S LiPo power with a highly-efficient heat sink design to keep you running cool, even when pushing it hard in mud, sand and other heavy power applications.
Castle Link: Industry-Leading Software Functions and Tuning Small but mighty, the Micro X can be “custom tuned” via Castle’s industry-leading Castle Link software. The Micro X includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB device. This allows access to the full programming suite of adjustable settings so that enthusiasts can tune and tweak the performance of their Micro X-equipped vehicle to their preference.

Not intended for operation while submerged in liquid. If unit is operated in wet conditions, rinse with fresh water to remove dirt or corrosives, then fully dry unit.
Applying voltages higher than 12.6 volts will cause irreparable damage to your controller, voiding your warranty.
Recommended battery capacity for 1:18th scale vehicles is 1500mAh. Castle recommends using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
The Mamba Micro X has 3.5mm bullet connectors on the motor wires and the battery input wires are bare. You must add the connector of your choice to the battery leads. Castle recommends a high current connector rated for at least 40 amps.
