Castle Phoenix Edge 120 HV - The Auxiliary Advantage
Phoenix Edge Series ESCs are the next evolution in speed controller technology.The white user-programmable auxiliary wire can be used for features such as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serving as an audible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, acting as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock (coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included), 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 (coupon included), or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter, Phoenix Edge offers unparalleled versatility.
Phoenix Edge HV 120 offers a voltage input range from 3S to 12S LiPo, and 120A continuous amperage capability - perfect for use in 550, 600, or 700 class helicopters, and giant scale fixed-wing aircraft.

Telemetry Link Capable: Yes
Tech Notes: Receiver voltage input range: 4.8-9v
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 (coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included) 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.
Arm Lock Key: When the Arm Lock Key is in the socket, the controller will be incapable of arming. (coupon for Arm Lock Key and Harness included with EDGE purchase)
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.
