Castle Creations Sidewinder 4 BL speed controller

Castle Creations have introduced the fourth generation of their popular Sidewinder brushless speed controller, the Sidewinder 4. The all- new and improved ESC builds upon Castle’s most popular platform – the Sidewinder 3. The the fourth generation is the first platform running Cryo-Drive technology which reduces operating temperatures in all applications as it is a combination of software enhancements and precision fluid dynamics. The new case is designed specifically for maximum airflow from the huge 30mm fan included with the Sidewinder 4. These changes result in cooler ESC temperatures, increased runtime and power handling. All of these improvements mean drivers can gear more aggressively for more speed and harder/longer runs. The speedo is still waterproof and compatible with the optional Castle Link USB programmer. The speed controller is available separately or as combo package with a range of 14xx series motors.
