Press Release from Castle Creations:
Castle Creations Inc., the leader in electronic speed controllers (ESC) and brushless DC motors for radio-controlled (R/C) car, air, and multi-rotor hobby markets, as well as commercial UAV and drone markets, is proud to announce the CASTLE B•LINK™ BLUETOOTH® ADAPTER and CASTLE LINK™ APP FOR iOS.
Castle Link ESC tuning is an essential component for customizing vehicle performance for many Castle Creations’ customers. While the controllers are plug and play, optimizing a Castle ESC through the Castle Link Programming Suite unlocks the full range of capabilities that set Castle apart from the competition. Users enjoy the ability to adjust many variables to enhance their experience including throttle, braking curve, drag brake, reverse type and more.
The Castle B•LINK Bluetooth Adapter enables users to wirelessly program settings on current Castle Creations ESCs, many older models and the BEC 2.0/BEC Pro on Apple iOS devices. The free Castle Link app for iOS is available on the Apple App Store for use with iPhones and iPads. Once downloaded, it does not require a data connection and can be used anywhere, including remote areas.
The CONVENIENT WATERPROOF DESIGN means B•LINK can withstand all weather conditions and allows users to quickly adjust settings in the field without disconnecting or disassembling the model. It is COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT, a mere .23oz (6.62g), so it can be installed in the vehicle/airframe without significantly increasing model weight.
The Castle Link app is an EASY TO USE APPLICATION that can be used with one or more B•LINK Bluetooth adapters by storing model information in the app as well as sync information between multiple iOS devices. To prevent unwanted tampering with settings, PASSCODE PROTECTION is enabled on B•LINK Bluetooth adapters using a 4-digit (user-selectable) code.
Current and new users of Castle Creations ESCs will enjoy the convenience and ease of use of programming via Bluetooth while iOS users now have access the rich set of Castle Link software features previously available only through a Windows™ PC and USB adapter. The Castle B•LINK Bluetooth adapter and Castle Link app for iOS is a much anticipated advancement that will provide users the ability to quickly alter ESC parameters, fine-tune adjustments and unlock the full potential of their Castle ESC anytime, anywhere.
The B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter is PROUDLY DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN OLATHE, KANSAS, and is backed by Castle Creations’ 1-year warranty and unparalleled ‘make-it-right’ customer support.
