Castle Creations Phoenix Edge Lite 50amp Brushless ESC
Lose the Weight, Gain the Edge!
Phoenix Edge Series ESCs are the next evolution in speed controller technology. The white user-programmable auxiliary wire can be used for features such as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serving as an audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, acting as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock (coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included), or as a receiver arming lock. Combined with data logging, access to Castle’s industry leading software functions, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (coupon included) or the Castle Link App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter, the Phoenix Edge offers unparalleled versatility.

This line may be used for a variety of tasks such as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an audible beacon after an "unexpected landing", act as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock (coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included) or as a receiver arming lock.
Telemetry has the potential not only to improve the safety of our models by monitoring battery voltages, ESC temperature, and other critical parameters, but it also creates other opportunities to get even more fun out of flying because you’ve essentially reduced the risks of “unknown” inevitable crashes. Think of the benefits to be had from alarms that will sound to warn you when there's interference about or if your receiver battery is running unexpectedly low. Requires purchase of Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (Item CSE010015200) and compatible Futaba Radio or Castle Telemetry Link for X-BUS (Item CSE010014800) and a compatible Spektrum Radio.
