Product Overview

Engineered from the ground up, the Mamba XLX2 is packed with a potent combination of hardware and software advancements, sensored performance, CRYO-DRIVET and waterproof design that will set a new standard for high performance power systems. The Mamba XL family is well known for its extreme performance capabilities. The XLX2 pays homage to the legacy of its predecessors and exceeds their performance on all levels.

CRYO-DRIVE, Castle's proprietary breakthrough technology integrates unique software and dedicated hardware to reduce heat and dramatically increase performance. Thousands of times per second, the XLX2 software minimizes the amount of time the electrical components spend generating heat. These software advancements work in parallel with an open housing design which enables increased directional airflow to cool critical components. With the combination of a new 50mm fan and forged elliptical fin heatsink, the XLX2 maximizes airflow throughout the system, taking thermal performance to a whole new level. The results are more power handling, cooler ESC temperatures and longer runtimes and for ultra-high performance.
You can easily optimize the ESC for any driving condition, from rugged terrain to smooth pavement to the perils of rock and gravel. Create, save and download setup profiles through the Castle Link Programming Suite on your Windows PC, or wirelessly with the convenience of the new B-Link Bluetooth Adapter and Castle Link app for Android or iOS.

Additional tuning flexibility awaits you with on-the-fly adjustments from your transmitter via the Auxiliary wire. Simply connect the white signal wire to an open radio channel, and enable the feature in Castle Link by selecting what Auxiliary function you would like to use. Access programming parameters such as Torque Control, Max Brake or Max Throttle.

CRYO-DRIVE

Castle's newest software technology, CRYO-DRIVE minimises the amount of time the ESC's electrical components spend generating heat by optimally controlling which components are being used while driving the motor. This is happening thousands of times per second, which greatly reduces the rate at which the ESC heats up. This results in significantly improved thermal performance during partial throttle operation where the majority of driving occurs. Your setup will be able to handle higher gear ratios, in heavier vehicles, with longer runs.


SmartSense

When paired with a Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED MOTOR SmartSense software, enabled by default in the Castle Link Programming Suite, will use 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 electric timing. Smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless running makes the Mamba XLX2 system produce more power and less heat. QUIETSENSET is an innovative advancement in the design of sensored motors to deliver the highest precision and most efficient startup.


Telemetry Link

Mamba XLX2 is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX, 7PX and T7PXR Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Creations 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.


20 Series Motor

Pairing the Mamba XLX2 with the Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED will allow heavy, high speed rigs to experience controllable low-end ranges without sacrificing power, punch or speed. SmartSenseT mode uses the motor's sensors to start the motor to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is spinning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle's ultra-efficient sensorless mode. You'll put more power to the ground, where it should be, instead of wasting it through raw heat and RPMs.

Motor Features
  • 4-POLE 12-SLOT sensored design that boasts exceptional efficiency and produces less heat
  • Proprietary stator winding produces low internal resistance for a cooler running motor
  • Dual sensor ports to ensure optimal installation in your large-scale vehicle
  • Oversized NMB bearings and vibration dampening system ensure the longest possible bearing life
  • High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with high-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions and high RPMs
