Crawlers and occasional rock racers check this out. You’Re not going to want to miss this video. A little modulation, never hurts huh and have a little punch and wheel speed so tune in and find out more about the new castle. Copperhead 10 esc, Music, okay, here’s the unboxing boom. We have the copperhead 10 right. There just came outside. Finally, something new from castle: it’s been a while, since they uh come out of the product. So this is pretty exciting: i’m, just using an old motor 2300. So they had a big gap between the sidewinder 4 and the mamba x. The these are the two ascs that crawlers use the sidewinder 4. You needed to get a censored or sense: sensorless variety, mamba x, it could do censored or sensorless and the site 104 was tiny. One by x was huge, i believe, 70 80 dollars for this, and this one was 150. So this one sits monkey in the middle 120 bucks and it does everything that the crawler needs and with a little bit of extra ump. If you want to get a a rift or rock racer or or something like that, so sidewinder 4 very good. But it hits its limitations a few ways. One is, you know: it’s only a six feet: amperage circuitry, so this one doubles that with a 12 feet, circuitry so that’s how much how much punch your motor can deliver and also how much braking it does.
And you know as you as you load it up repeated repeated acceleration, repeated punches that’s when you overload that circuit, so this one has less fade than that one and then the big one is that one only went 3s 3s battery, like this 11 12.6 volts. This one is quite a bit more 16.8 volts or 4s. So why do you want 4s? I hope you you guys are using 3s. So when you jump from 2s to 3s, you saw what happened right. Everything was better, more torque, more top speed, that’s the same thing: 3s to 4s. You get the same effect and we’re, finding that we’re able to use 4s on these high performance collars. We have these super tiny, 4s batteries about as big as this servos, so it doesn’t have to be heavy, but it has all the the top end that you’re going to need and what’s cool is now we’re starting to get these. These super servos um. This is the homes shb 800 1000 ounce it’s just a torque that feed off 4s. So now we have servos that are 4s compatible. So if you are competing 4s it’s going to be uh is is going to one up you if you just have a 3s. So but it’s pretty cool and i’ll i’ll show you some real world scenarios in my front and my back uh basically uh. I had it on 3s, with a top speed run with my gps and it said 9.
6 miles an hour. Nine points my top speed with 4s, just a smooth 13.1 miles an hour so who doesn’t want free money right and look at my forest battery. It’S tiny and you you’ll have the runtime as well, because you’re not going to be on 13.1 full throttle miles an hour you’re not going to use as much throttle because it’s just got so much power. So there we go so definitely better than the the the micro x a little bigger. You know, it’s uh, not quite as big as the mamba x, but you know decent size still smaller than the hobby wing. Next question is: how is it different from the mamba x, the mamba x has a little more current 16 16 fat, so 50 more more, more amperage more current than this, but we don’t really need that. You know we’re plenty good with this there’s, no motor that we use or no no throttle gunning that we that we use that’s gon na need the mamba x. So the other thing it does is it has a an auxiliary, auxiliary wire, a third wire connected to the that you can connect to the receiver to control something and most commonly you connect. You control the the drag break, so the drag break can be super fast or super slow, uh, super mellow or super aggressive, and you control the wood with one of your knobs and the third one that’s quite significant is aluminum case on the mamba x.
This one has a just a normal plastic case, so i imagine it looks better. It dissipates more heat if you have those applications, but the heat is not an issue because you have a fan. If you need it, this one’s gold by the way so or copper. So it looks cooler. Basically, we now have a go to four crawlers and occasional rock racers. This is this: is the esc.
