Default Castle Sidewinder question...

Ok this probably sounds like a stupid question, but where do you plug in the data link to a Castle Creations Sidewinder ESC? I bought mine used and I dont see any type of port on it. I looked through the online instructions and every time it refers to the data link it shows a Mamba Max. Thanks...

You will need the Castle link software and connector. The connector will plug into your wire that goes to the receiver. Just unplug the esc wire from the receiver and plug it into the castle link connector.

Wouldn't be surprised if they take the USB port off the Mamba Max and be similar to the Sidewinder and Monster
