Default mamba max software won't let me click anything

just ordered the $150 7700 and installed it. The castlelink software won't let me click on any setting, it will just make "bing" sound everytime I click. the connection status is green and the driver is installed correctly. Anyone have this problem?

edit: problem solved. installed 1.1 net framework

I still have cogging issue running 3800 7 cell.

Get rid of the sh!tty gold connectors (<Castle techs exact words) Shorten ESC to motor wires as much as possible & hard wire them....problem solved. My 7700 had major cogging issues until I shortened the wires. I've done this to my 4600, 5700, & 7700 now with no cogging.

And where did you get them MM 7700 for $150??

$155 to be exact, with few dollars shipping
http://pfmdistribution.com/secure/sh...d=225&catid=54

only take 4 days and it arrived, I geared it to 12/90 everything to lowest and it helped. I'll try shorten the esc to motor thanks for the tip! Still need to get the heat sink for motor and maybe mount some fan for the esc, anyone have ideas for how to do that?

I get about 15 mins with 3300 6 cells before the motor get little hot but sttill touchable.

I wasn´t able to fully eliminate cogging with the Mamba Max, but I did get close. You can try playing with your start power settings, try them all. Also try keeping your timing settings on normal. Also try to use deans or direct solder your battery to your ESC, and try the other suggestions these guys said.

I would love to hardwire mine (like my GTB), did you open the motor up and replace wires with longer ones, or splice it all together?

I'm guessing you mean ESC to motor wires

I could do that too, my esc/motor are close enough, but I would prefer to be able to replace the wires if needed.
