This is the Castle Creations Phoenix ICE2 Lite HV 160 ESC. Phoenix Ice2 HV controllers incorporate the latest components, providing you with the reliability you expect from Castle Creations. All Ice controllers are ready to fly out of the bag, but users can tap into serious programming capabilities by connecting them to Castle Link software using a Castle Link* or Field Link programming card**.
Phoenix Ice2 HV logs incredibly useful data directly in the controller. No more guessing about the performance of your system – now you’ll have hard numbers to prove it! Quick Connect is recommended for more convenient data log downloading and controller setting adjustments. 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!
