Default Can Mamba handle 4 cells Ni-Mh??

Hi Joe,

With new ruling poping out... can Mamba run on 4 cells??
Will Mamba comes out with a firmware upgrade to make it run on 4 cells??

I've already tested it on 4 cells. Disable the BEC on the controller by lifting the tab on the receiver plug and pulling the red wire out (be sure to insulate it afterwards), then solder a receiver plug to the ESC side of your battery connection and use it as a jumper to power the receiver.

Any time frame yet on the software upgrade to run the Mamba Max with a sensored Novak brushless motor?

Still working on it...we don't do estimated delivery dates...too many people got mad when the product/software/etc wasn't released on the estimated date. Sorry.

It feels similar to a brushed motor, just more power.

If you compare one of the top selling brand senored motors to the Mamba You would think the sensored motor is the senorless one. They are so smooth. The Esc;s are fully programmeable to what ever power curve you wish to use or what suits your driving style
