Castle Creations ESC Identification Help
 
Someone gave me a Castle Creations ESC. It's probably about 3 or 4 years old, but it wasn't ever used. I have no idea what model it is. It was for a trex 450. The guy said he thought it was a 35A. Can anyone help?

That's a Phoenix-45, old style (about six-seven years old.)

Hey Patrick,

What about this one. CastleLink identifies it as "Phoenix-35/45 (F310)". I got it 5-7 years ago. Can't remember if I got it used so it could be even older.

Thanks,
Larry

Phoenix-35, third generation. It's maybe 5 years old. :)

Thanx!

Not trying to dispute the master and maker, and this is well before my time...but I'm pretty sure that second one is a 45. It has 13 gauge wires on the battery side and 16 gauge wire on the motor side. Double checked with Joe and he concurs. Thoughts Patrick? :)

Doh! You are right Thomas! That's a Phx-45, not a Phx-35...

Thanks Patrick,

That's good news. I really couldn't remember which one it was.

I got this info from Thomas @ Castle

to check to see which one he has. If he does manual programming and sets setting 1 to option 1, he can tell which version he has. After he programs it to 1, 1 have him power it back up. If it does the Auto LiPo count then he has the Auto LiPo version; if it doesn't do the counts then he has the non-Auto LiPo version.
