A while back we posted that Castle Creations would be upgrading their Sidewinder and Mamba Monster line to waterproof versions. Well the Sidewinder3 and Mamba Monster 2 have been officially detailed and are ready to go. We aren’t sure what took Castle so long for their in house product line to catch up to their OEM line, since that’s has had waterproof versions for a while, but many people will be happy it finally showed up.
The Sidewinder3 can handle up to a 3s LiPO, is designed for 1/10th scale crawlers, short course vehicles and other similar sized stuff. The ESC alone is $79, and in a combo with a motor of your choice for only $129. (Motor choices are 4600kv,5700kv, 6900kv, or 7700kv).
