    Default Mamba xlx back order

    What is the scoop on Castle Creations MAMBA XLX availability? Every where I look they are on back order. Is this related to the trade embargo with China or what?

    If the MAMBA XLX is out of production what would a good ESC for a Q sport hydro be?

    The US trade embargo with China ended in 1971. The XLX is on backorder at Castle, why is anyone’s guess.

    What is your expected amp draw?

    I am using the wrong terminology, I was thinking about the recent import tariffs that have been imposed on China.

    I am looking to replace the Swordfish 240A ESC i burnt up in my ML Boatworks GSX380 a couple of weeks ago. I do not think the problem was related to prop size I was using a X457 prop done by Andy Brown that is at the bottom of the pond now. The motor was Leopard 5692 1340kv on 6S. I suspect the flex shaft failing just inside of the stuffing tube overloaded the ESC causing it to burn up one of the FETs. Then the flex shaft finally snapped and that is when I lost the prop.

    I am not apposed to getting another Swordfish ESC but am just looking for option.

    Thanks
