??? Would it be possible to add and option to the software for the fan ????

I would be nice if we could have the fan on all the time for hot weather use, without having to re-wire the fan.
You really don't have to worry about it - -the fan kicks in LONG before the ESC gets to a temp where you would have to worry about the heat...

I have the same problem always, u need to get castle links to connect ESC to PC and reset all the setting through software to default. After that connect back to the ESC and try bind the throttle setting again. It should be ok.

Problem is when its turned on the esc does the twiddle beep then beep beep (for 2 cell operation I gather) then it just flashes all lights and does not respond, steering works fine, even changed esc rx wire to the steering (to find if its an rx/tx issue, steering worked on throttle ok) but still nothing, tried holding throttle and switching on ect to go through setup but still flashes and no go, tried moving throttle trim on its cheap RTR tx and switching on but no different.

Im not familular with the castle type systems so not sure what to do next, would the usb link firmware upgrade help?

Any help is appreciated, cheers.

This may have already been covered, but looking for input from people running MMM 2650kV setup on 3S Lipo in 1/8 buggy. Does this voltage seem sufficient for proper operation, runtimes, mAh batteries used, etc.?

A good quality epoxy will do just fine. Just use a very thin layer.

Yes, the 2650Kv motor will give really nice long runtimes with a 3S setup. Works very well. Most people I have seen using this setup are using 4400 to 5600mah Lipos.

I plugged in my Mamba ESC to the battery, brushless motor and receiver. All connections look correct. When I plug in the battery the ESC starts and I hear the initialization beep. However, once this ends the ESC constantly beeps.

What am I missing here? Why is the ESC beeping constantly?

Does the graph viewer work with the MM pro?

When yes, how?

Sorry if this was covered but I couldn't find it.

How can I tell the difference between a Mamba Monster V1, V2, & V3 speedo?


Thanks
Robbie

it happened to me too. im new in this mamba system. but i figure it out. you have to calibrate esc to your transmitter. i think its page 8 on your manual.

hi...i'm new with Mamba Max...

i recently bought used Mamba Max combo with 5600kv BL motor.
i just wonder that 5600kv is equivalent to how many turn?(as in 6.5T,5.5T etc..)
some of my friends said its equivalent to 9T, some of them said its 5.5T..
kindly clarify on this.

another thing, what is the motor limit for the Mamba Max speedo.

TQ

My estimate would place it at about the same "feel" as a 6.5T

Default Mamba max pro Fan

I Race 10.5 @ 13.5 TC with Xray 09 and T3 in the UK and Just like to say what a Great Speedo MMP is. I usually run Norsram touring spec Speedo, MMP was so much more powerful. Still playing around with different settings, rpm cheat settings e.c.t, At the moment itís too powerful at the wrong time (totally my fault) . Someone is going to help me set it properly for Carpet wars and any advice you could give. Sorry for being bit long winded. Just wanted to know if ok to run with out a fan in 13.5 10.5 TC racing 2c Lipo. Itís just getting warm and just trying to get weight down nearer to 1350g Touring car limit
Just ordered another one I was so impressed.
Cheers
Ben
