1:5 Scale Power to the Extreme.

Mamba XL X is a new high-performance controller for 1:5th scale RC hobby vehicles weighing up to 30 lbs. Paired with the 2028-800kv Extreme motor, this duo becomes the perfect combination for large-scale, ultra-high-performance RC vehicles. Have you ever seen a 1:5th scale Baja doing 70 mph? If you’ve got the traction, this Castle combination can get you there. The features of this recently revamped ESC will prove this supercharged combo will provide all of the brains and brawn needed to OVERPOWER 1:5th scale car and gas to electric conversions.

NEW HIGH POWER BEC

A robust, user adjustable, internal 20A peak BEC will provide plenty of juice for applications with powerful servos and electrical components that run off the ESC.

AUXILIARY WIRE FUNCTIONALITY ON-THE-FLY ADJUSTMENTS

When the Castle Phoenix Edge line was introduced for heli and plane applications, we announced the addition of the user programmable auxiliary wire. Our surface enthusiasts will now have a taste of the simplicity and convenience of this feature with the Mamba X Series Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC). In short, the auxiliary wire is an extra wire that, when connected to an open channel on your radio, allows users to take advantage of on-the-fly adjustments (using your transmitter) that would otherwise be modified or set using the Castle Link Programming Suite. The feature is enabled through the Castle Link Programming system and one mode may be selected at a time. Several modes are available for on-the-fly programming.

DATA LOGGING – AN INCREDIBLY POWERFUL PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT AND OPTIMAZATION TOOL


Data Logging enhancements include doubling the logging capacity and adding the ability for users to erase the data log utilizing the auxiliary switch. Enabling the data logging feature will maximize performance and setup optimization. Who hasn’t wondered if they’re pulling more amps than their battery can put out or been baffled by battery usage? Data Logging will record important power system information during use, turn-by-turn. Once the data is uploaded to the Castle Link Graph Viewer, users can view and analyze parameters such as battery voltage, battery ripple voltage, amp draw, motor rpm, and controller temperature. Ensuring a setup is performing within its limits is imperative to a healthy power system. The new Castle Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) offers users access to both wires into the single Castle Link connection, without opening the receiver box! The Quick Connect Duo detects the presence of a Castle Link adapter on the free lead and will then will switch the controller's signal line from the receiver to the Castle Link.

Software Enhancements – Telemetry Ready (Futaba S.BUS® T4PX transmitter compatibility coming soon!!)

Additional software enhancements include the addition of Link Live™ to the Mamba XL X capabilities. This feature, when enabled, will allow users to experience real-time telemetry data such as battery voltage, battery current and ESC temperature. Compatibility with the Futaba S.BUS® T4PX transmitter is coming soon and this controller is READY!

(MODE 1) ARES V-HAWK X4 RTF

The Ares Z-Line V-Hawk X4 is designed for pilots who are looking for a unique flying experience — the ability to take off vertically like a helicopter or quadcopter and transition to flying like an airplane.

This flying transition is made easy with the use of a pre-installed, innovative flight control board and pre-assembled rotating motor nacelles.

With just the flip of a channel switch on your transmitter the motor nacelles rotate.

As they do, the flight controller automatically changes the programming from flying like a quad to flying like an airplane with elevon controls.

Simply flip the switch back to return to quad-flying mode.

The V-Hawk X4 is available in two versions that incorporate the reliable new Hitec Red 2.4GHz radio protocol that's compatible with most Hitec systems already on the market.

Choose either Ready-To-Fly (including a Hitec Red-enabled transmitter and receiver) or Pair-To-Fly (packaged with a Hitec Red receiver that’s compatible with your existing Hitec transmitter).

In addition to the RTF and PTF versions, the V-Hawk is also available in RFR (Ready-For-Receiver) form for customers who already have their own radio system.

The V-Hawk X4’s durable EPO airframe comes nearly 100% pre-assembled and includes all four BL motors, four BL ESCs, a control board with stabilization, two 9g servos, one 17g MG servo, and even a 1300mAh 4S Li-Po battery (4S charger not included).

The only assembly you’ll have to complete is gluing on the tail, and even the glue is included!

So, if you’re ready to take on the adventure of an airplane capable of performing vertical take-offs and landings (VTOL), and short take-offs and landings (STOL), the Ares Z-Line V-Hawk X4 is the airplane for you.

Features

  • Arrives painted and trimmed in eye-catching US Marines scheme.
  • innovative flight control board allows the V-Hawk to take off vertically, fly like a gyro stabilized quad, then transition to forward flight and revert to elevon control.
  • Rotating motor nacelles allow you to fly from the smallest of spaces.

  • A potentially superb FPV platform.
