Meet the next generation.
Castle Creations is proud to announce our new flagship surface product, the MAMBA X EXTREME 1:10 SCALE WATERPROOF ESC. We at Castle wanted to address three main concepts while designing a new ESC for the modern day RC enthusiast; VERSATILITY, RELIABILITY, and PERFORMANCE. These are the pillars of the Mamba X design and the driving forces behind the feature-packed controller.
The Mamba X is extremely versatile, capable of powering a wide variety of applications ranging from 2S to 6S and vehicles ranging from 1/10th scale to 1/8th scale*. Whether you are racing at the track with your 2wd buggy, bashing through mud puddles in your SCT or monster truck, or navigating a hardcore crawling excursion, this controller raises the bar to a whole new level.
ESCs have a tough life - landing extreme jumps, experiencing accidental collisions, and splashing through the occasional puddle. As R/C enthusiast themselves, Castle engineers understand this and designed the Mamba X to endure these situations and power through them. It is housed in a rugged CNC-machined aluminum case and then potted in waterproof epoxy. This not only protects the electronics but ensures any heat generated in the controller can easily be dissipated through the case.
The high performance Mamba X includes an integrated and powerful 8A adjustable BEC and can push the most extreme 1/10th scale setups and 1/8th scale* race buggies. SmartSense allows you to take advantage of smooth, cog-free, and predictable sensored starts, and Castle’s new and improved throttle response keeps you ahead of the competition.
The Mamba X is proudly designed and manufactured in Olathe, Kansas and is backed by Castle Creations’ 1-year warranty and unparalleled "make-it-right" customer support. Call us, email us, or walk in our front door – we’re here to help.

The Mamba X has an exclusive set of features that allow you more control and flexibility than ever before.
by default, the Mamba X uses the motor’s sensors to provide smooth
starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is
turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ULTRA-EFFICIENT
sensorless mode with electronic timing. When running, a motor must
transition between different load points and a different timing advance
is required for optimal efficiency at each. Electronic timing in
SMARTSENSE™ will advance timing automatically for peak performance
during all driving conditions. This combines the best of both worlds in
an unrivaled HYBRID between smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency
sensorless running. Your motor will produce more power and less heat.
AUXILIARY WIRE FUNCTIONALITY
Mamba X allows “on-the-fly” adjustments to be made through the AUX wire
once enabled in Castle Link. Once you have selected an AUX wire
function, that setting can then be tuned from your transmitter while
driving. Torque control, max throttle, max brake and drag brake
adjustments are a sampling of the available modes. This real-time tuning
allows you to quickly and easily fine-tune your system.
by default, the Mamba X captures and records performance data from your
vehicle. This allows you to view a detailed turn-by-turn record of what
your ESC actually experienced during the run. You will be able to
record real-time data such as motor RPM, battery current and voltage,
ESC and motor temperature, throttle input, and more. Download and
analyze the collected data via Castle Link and make adjustments to
maximize both performance and battery life.
