Our engineers are working tirelessly to resolve the power issues that some customers are experiencing on the Mamba Monster X and Mamba XL X.

Today they be releasing a firmware update for the Mamba Monster X. It will be posted shortly and should get the power levels back to the range of its predecessors.

The start-up current limiter still exists so it cannot be used for drag racing. But on speed setups and standard 1/8th setups you should notice a significant power increase over the previous firmware versions.

The engineers will be focusing on the XL X in the coming weeks so please stay tuned. Thanks for your patience and continued support.

We hope everyone has a great 4th of July and many hours of RC fun this weekend!

Yes, that's what I meant by "get the power levels back to the range of its predecessors.". Sorry about that, should have been a little more specific. But yes, it should perform equal to if not better than the Monster 2 in the same application.

Please let us know how it works for you. We will be monitoring this and other forums with regards to the update to see if it works as well as we hope.

Feedback on the new software?

XLX software will be released this week as well (If everything goes as planned.)

Thanks!

As we say in The Netherlands, No news is good news :)
A qoute from an RCtech topic:

Quote:
The new firmware definitely works. I just updated my xlx/leopard 5892 that im running in my x-maxx. There's definitely a huge difference in start up power. The xlx felt like it was running max punch control prior to the update.

I'm no longer using the TP4070, went back to the C1515. Maybe some others can chime in.
