Sensored motors have of course sensors in them that tell the ESC where or how the motor shaft or armature is position and the esc can right away start the motor without cogging.

Its not a matter of one is good for the average user and the other is for more advance users.

Unless you're racing you really dont need to get the sensored motor cause then you need a sensored ESC if you want to use that feature and the sensor in the motor is a component that can fail and when it does the motor wont work.

I like the options on the pro, for example the cheat mode which runs censored at start up then turns it off for more power is cool.

so it dosn't take any more ability to use a sensored motor, it just gives you better start ups. do both syestems come with sensored motors?

Use the 4S Luke

Got off the phone with Castle tech support. Mamba Max is up to 3S. Will not do sensored control and about 80A max.

You can use a separate BEC after disabling the onboard MM BEC and it will run 4S. You may get lucky and have it arm on 5S, but thats iffy with the newer ones. My oldest MM (bought when they had just come out) will run 5S using a separate BEC.

I'm running my 2WD Slash with a MM right now, 3600 Medusa running 3S.

I use to run my MM on 6s A123, with the use of a dimension engineering park bec. The trick was to disable the voltage cutoff all together.

do the mamba max and mamba max pro combos come with the same motors? and are the motors sensored or sensorless?

The castle motors are sensorless.
