For Sale
My castle creations, oh crap its too big sale

Thats right I bought this castle creations Ice 100 (NEW) and its waaayyyyy to big for my 450. $125.00 shipped and it is new in bag never took it out to even look at it. Heres some info, Please see me (HBJ069) at rctech and rc crawler for my feedback!!

Welcome to the Next Generation of Castle Air Controllers, the Phoenix Ice Series. Phoenix Ice brings the ability to run at input voltages of up to 8S* (33.6) and use the built in switching BEC to output up to 5 amps of servo power all the way up to the 8S max*!

Switching BEC
The Phoenix Ice switching BEC output is factory set to 5.0V. Users may use Castle Link to select their desired voltage between 5.0V and 7.0V, in 0.1V increments.
Data Logging
Ice brings another incredibly useful feature, extensive data logging capabilities. The controllers are able to measure and record many parameters at sample rates that you choose between 10 samples per second and 1 sample per second. Data points include:

* Battery Voltage
* Battery Ripple
* Battery Current
* Controller Temperature
* Controller Input Throttle
* Controller Motor Power Output
* Motor RPM

This data is stored directly in the controller and may be accessed once the run is over using the Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately) and Castle Link software (available free at castlecreations.com). The Max Log Size is 21,504 bytes, everything takes one byte except for motor rpm which takes two.

* Logging 'Battery Current' at only a 1 sample / second - 358 minutes of logging time (almost 6 hrs)
* Logging 'Motor RPM' at only 1 sample / second - 179 minutes of logging time
* Logging everything at only 1 sample / second - 44 minutes of logging time
* Logging everything at 10 samples / second - 4 minutes and 28 seconds

Two versions: Heat Sink 8S max input and Heat Shrink 6S max input
The Ice comes in two versions, standard version which is optimized for demanding RC heli and sport aircraft applications and a Lite version packaged in heat shrink for users with tight fuselages.
All Phoenix Ice are ready to fly out of the bag, no programming is necessary for most aircraft applications. The controllers are set at the factory for Auto Lipo detect/cutoff operation and they are tuned for optimum outrunner performance.
Advanced users will find the incredible programmability of the Phoenix Ice allows for performance characteristics tailored exactly to their desires.
Heli users are raving about the performance of Castle’s programmable helicopter modes which include options to directly enter desired governed headspeeds as numerical values! Every heli power combination requires slightly varying governor gains, Castle makes these easy to tweak and the net result is a rock solid tail.
We now offer the Quick Connect for more convenient data log downloading and adjusting controller settings. The quick connect is a special harness that allows you to keep the speed controller plugged into the receiver when connecting to the Castle Link. It has an extra 12" servo lead that can be placed wherever it is convenient to plug in the link, while your speed controller stays connected to the receiver. No more digging into your setup to get to the receiver just to pull off your data or change settings!

Isn't that a little expensive? I know its new but my hobby shop sells them for $109.99, not trying to be negative just seems a little odd.

So are you paying for it? I dont have a LHS and I had to pay shipping and will probably have to eat pp fees and shipping again. Do you need to see my receipt?

You don't even need a dremel, just peel off the label and case comes apart. Then shrink it with heat shrink tube.

HBJ069 you mind as well just do that and run it on your 450. Without the case you should be good, just make sure you get enough airflow over it.

If you don't sell it consider contacting Castle Creations. Maybe they will trade you for what you need? They are very easy to work with.
