    Hobbywing 56113 or castle 2028?

    So Iím in the process of doing up another x-maxx. I have one already that has a hobbywing 56113 on it with 30/35 gearing. I was thinking to do this one with the castle 2028 combo. Any thoughts? All my mounting and conversion stuff including gears is coming from the Xmaxx store. Just need to nail down the power. My lhs has both in stock. Castle is $75 more. But money isnít a issue.

    Mate, if you have a Hobbywing 56113, go for the Castle one, is a beast and at this form, you have both motors and two different performances.

    I am 100% with you. That new castle motor looks crazy. I put a couple packs through my Xmaxx with the 56113. Omg I love how it handles. And the power makes me drool. Lol.

    Once you get the new castle motor, let us know how it compares to the hobbywing one you have.

    I’m getting ready to do a hobby wing 1100 KV with the max 5 ESC. With gearing 20/35. Can’t wait to see the power I get from it.

    It’s all in and done and it’s crazy! No comparison to the one I have built with 56113 and max 5.
    Castle has my business from now on!

    Really?!? Do you mind elaborating on why you prefer the new set up over the hobbywing?

    Power out of the castle is far superior. The setup of the castle is easily done with castle link and your iPhone. There are way mor parameters and mixing options with the castle. Like mentioned I have a xmaxx with a 56113 and max 5 and another Xmaxx fine yo with a castle 2028 and mmx8s. If it wasn’t good I would tell you. I love the castle stuff!

    You're are right, there are the two versions.
