Castle Creations Sidewinder SV3 ESC & Brushless 6900Kv Motor

This is the new Castle Creations Sidewinder SV3 ESC and 6900Kv Brushless Motor system. The new Sidewinder 3 system is now waterproof. The Sidewinder 6900Kv is perfect for 1/10th 2WD and 4WD buggies and trucks running 2S LiPo battery packs.

Castle’s Sidewinder ESC, the leading 1/10th scale sport brushless ESC, is now waterproof. The new Sidewinder 3 can power crawlers on water filled trails, SCTs through rain soaked parking lots, and AWDs on rips across muddy fields. Drivers can follow their irresistible urges to drive in the mud or stomp their truck in puddles without damaging their controller.


  • Recommended for all 1/10 scale buggy and truck applications that weigh less than 5lbs (2.25kg) ready to run (not for use in heavier vehicles such as E-Revos or E-Maxx class vehicles)
  • USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately)
  • Waterproof for use in nearly every environment (not intended for operation while submerged in liquid)
  • Compatible with the Castle Creations 14xx series NeuCastle motors
  • Reversible with reverse lockout
  • 1406 Series 6900Kv Motor
  • 540 size can replaces many stock brushed motors
  • Four magnet, four pole rotor for greater torque
  • 1.4" diameter slotted stator
  • Removable end bell

Designed for 1/10th Scale

It sports updated circuitry for faster response time and improved reliability. As always, the Sidewinder 3 offers industry-leading software functions and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately).

Legal mumbo jumbo
Although Sidewinder 3 and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, always rinse the ESC and motor with fresh water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servo, radio and chassis, are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.
