Castle Creations has released their latest beast , the Monster X. The waterproof Monster X is capable of 2S LiPo up to 6S LiPo and this Bad Boy is capable of powering a RC monster that weighs up to 15 lbs. The new waterproof Monster X can also be configured to run sensored brushless motors with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness from Castle Creations. (Of course). The improved heavy-duty adjustable Battery Eliminator Circuit (BEC) will provide plenty of power for power hungry servos.

This might be a nice option for the Axial Yeti XL. I may need to investigate further.
