Novak Micro Sensored BL Motor system

While specifications and features are not yet fully finalized, Novak have announced that their are in the process of finalising this new micro system which will feature the same sensored technology employed in their GTB, XBR and HV systems. This sensored design ensures silky smooth, low-end throttle and brake performance yet still retains quick response throughout the rest of the throttle and brakes. The motor is a standard 380-size and will easily fit in most available 1/18-scale vehicles such as the Xray M18 shown above. The ESC is roughly the size of Novak’s GTX. Available in the near future.
