From the trusted manufacturer of BECs comes the next generation of voltage regulators. Designed and assembled in the USA1, Castle Creations’ CC BEC 2.0 gives users higher voltage ranges in two unique packages. For pilots there is a smaller, lightweight (0.7 oz.) design capable of 14 amps peak, perfect for sport flying, helicopters, and UAVs. Racers, crawlers, and other splashers can now integrate a 15 amp peak power regulator in a waterproof (WP), CNC machined, aluminum case. Both versions handle up to an impressive 14S without brake enabled or 12S with brake.
The CC BEC 2.0 complements our established line of BECs hobbyists have relied on for years. With hundreds of thousands in the field, users can count on this new design to power today’s high-power, digital servos and accessories safely. The CC BEC 2.0 features heavy duty, dual output wires that will provide clean power to sensitive radio equipment. Castle Link2 can be used to set the output from 4.75 to 12 volts and power today’s power hungry servos, cameras, and other accessories. Do it right the first time, invest in the CC BEC 2.0 to protect expensive electronics for the long haul.
Assembled in the USA with foreign and domestic components.
Adjustable Output Voltage may be set with Castle Link (sold separately).
Ratings are determined with a 5mph airflow at 25° C (77° F). Ratings for CC BEC 2.0 are dependent on both input and output voltage as follows in chart below:
Weight with full length wires, power wires may be shortened to save weight depending on application.
Olathe KS, September 14, 2016 – Castle Creations Inc., the leader in electronic speed controllers (ESC) for radio controlled (R/C) car, air, and multi-rotor hobby markets, as well as commercial UAV and drone markets, is excited to announce the release of the brand new, high performance, DMR 30/40 ESC for use in high performance and demanding applications such as FPV racing drones, battle drones, large camera carrying multi-rotors, and heavy lift multi-rotors.
Loaded with features, the DMR 30/40 boasts an impressive power to weight ratio and is ready to fly right out of the package. The DMR 30/40 is controlled by Castle’s innovative Multi-Rotor V5 firmware released in July of 2016. The Multi-Rotor V5 firmware includes Castle’s proprietary Adaptive Timing SystemTM (ATSTM) which maximizes efficiency and power output across the entire throttle range and results in increased flight times and noticeably more torque.
Key features of the new DMR 30/40 include:
Adaptive Timing System™ (ATSTM) technology
Ultra-low internal resistance design
Ready to fly out of the package with exclusive Castle “Turbo Sound”
High power to weight ratio: Over 1kW from a 5.2g ESC1
Advanced rotorSENSE2 allows elegant simplicity in throttle calibration and setting motor direction
Auto-Detecting Input Signal selects between Servo PWM, OneShot, and OneShot125
Dynamic motor PWM frequency
High maximum electrical RPM to support some of the fastest motors available
Improved Active Braking algorithm
Wide input voltage range for a variety of applications and flight times
Programmable via Castle Link USB Adapter or Castle Field Link
Designed, manufactured, and supported from Olathe, KS USA
Released in July 2016, Multi-Rotor V5 firmware is a free upgrade to existing multi-rotor products and available for download through Castle Creations’ website, www.castlecreations.com.
“We are very excited about the release of our new DMR 30/40 ESCs to the growing FPV drone and multi-rotor markets”, says Brian O’Donnell, Director of Marketing and Sales. “The market has been asking Castle to provide a robust design that is easy to use, has outstanding performance and support. Bringing this new innovation to our FPV drone and multi-rotor customers is only the beginning. It is an exciting time to be in RC and at Castle Creations.”
Olathe KS, July 15, 2016 – Castle Creations, the leader in electronic speed controllers (ESC) for unmanned aircraft systems, is excited to announce the release of a brand new, state-of-the-art and feature rich firmware, Multi-Rotor V5, for FPV racing and multi-rotor drones (UAV’s).
Castle Creations’ ESC’s are designed for use in high performance and FPV racing and multi-rotor drones and have a unique Adaptive Timing System to maximize efficiency and power output across the entire throttle range, increasing flight times and maximizing power. Multi-Rotor V5 features an extremely fast throttle response and allows for very high throttle input frequencies, resulting in increased vehicle stability.
When FPV racers upgrade to Castle Creations’ new, industry-leading Multi-Rotor V5 firmware, they will experience thrust, precision and agility like never before. Multi-Rotor V5 is a free upgrade to existing CastleLink software users and available for download through Castle Creations’ website, www.castlecreations.com.
