Castle Creations Phoenix Edge Lite 130A BL ESC, SBEC
Part Number: CC-PHNX-EDGE-130L
PHOENIX EDGE LITE 130 AMP ESC, 8S / 33.6V WITH 5 AMP BEC
Lose the Weight, Gain the Edge!
Phoenix Edge Series ESCs are the next evolution in speed controller technology. The white user-programmable auxiliary wire can be used for featuressuch as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serving as anaudible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, acting as an RPM output for3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock, or as a receiver arming lock. Combined with data logging, access to Castle’s industry leading software functions, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter, Phoenix Edge offers unparalleled versatility.
Phoenix Edge Lite controllers offer all the amazing features and functionality as the regular Edge series with a reduced size and weight.
- • Telemetry Capable : Yes
- • ESC Current Rating : 130
- • Data Logging : Yes
- • Auxiliary Wire : Yes
- • Internal BEC : Yes
- • Minimum Input Voltage : 2S
- • Maximum Input Voltage : 8S
Available using Castle Link USB adapter and the Castle Link Windows software to read, analyze and store the data recorded on the ESC.
Power System Alerts:
The Edge ESCs are programmed to sound a number of tunes and codes using the motor as well as flashing LED patterns to alert users to certain conditions regarding their power system, such as over temperature, excessive load and locked head speed.
The Edge ESCs offer an AUX LINE, which is the extra white wire connected to the receiver cable. This line may be used for a variety of tasks such as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an audible beacon after an "unexpected landing", act as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock or as a receiver arming lock.
Telemetry has the potential not only to improve the safety of our models by monitoring battery voltages, ESC temperature, and other critical parameters, but it also creates other opportunities to get even more fun out of flying because you’ve essentially reduced the risks of “unknown” inevitable crashes. Think of the benefits to be had from alarms that will sound to warn you when there's interference about or if your receiver battery is running unexpectedly low. Requires purchase of Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (Item # 010-0152-00) and compatible Futaba Radio or Castle Telemetry Link for X-BUS (Item# 010-0148-00) and a compatible Spektrum Radio.
Arming Lock Key: When the Arm Lock Key is in the socket, the controller will be incapable of arming.
RC Arm Lock: The controller will not arm or run when the auxiliary channel is below 50% after connecting the AUX line to an open channel on your receiver that is programmed to serve as an arm lock switch.
Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software or the Castle Link iOS App and B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter. (A small subset of the settings available through Castle Link Windows software can be accessed via manual programming through the transmitter stick).
Users will receive free access to all firmware updates, including added features sets using the Castle Link USB Programming Kit
Castle Link Compatible
With the Castle Link USB Programming Kit you can use your Windows™ PC to easily program your controller. Castle Link includes all code for all Castle Link compatible hobby products in one convenient download. Note: Castle Link software requires a Castle Link USB Adapter and a computer that is running Windows. Castle Link is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Macintosh users may take advantage of software such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or Apple's Boot Camp along with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 to run the Castle Link software, provided the Macintosh has an Intel processor. Macintosh installation is not supported by Castle Creations.
Additional Castle Link benefits include:
- • Access expanded programming and parameters for Castle controllers (see overview below)
- • Access to all firmware updates, including added features sets released from Castle Engineering, at no charge.
- • Intuitive Demo Mode capability
- • Ability to default ESC to factory settings
- • Ability to save setup profiles for later use
- • Ability to download and view data logs (on applicable controllers)

Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter.
*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 130 amps with appropriate cooling. Phoenix Edge Lite controllers are designed without a heat-sink for applications with extreme air-flow, such as EDF planes, or applications with average current requirements much less than peak current requirements. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C (212F). Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components and shorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw at full-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the ESC’s operating temperature.
**Peak indicates amperage sustainable for 0.5 seconds – long enough for most servos’ current draw transients. Your setup may vary. Always confirm servo current draw before the first flight of the model.
Note: This is a high power product with the potential to be very dangerous. Please read the safety information before use. This product may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
