New from Novak:
The new Goat 2S Crawler Brushless System is now available in 21.5T! The system includes the Goat 2S Crawler Brushless/Brush ESC (#3219), which has a Fully-Programmable Interface using Novak’s easy One-Touch button and four LEDs. The following parameters can be adjusted in all four adjustable driving profiles: Dead Band, Minimum Drive, and Hill/Drag Brakes (except Servo/Robotic Mode). The Drive Frequency can also be adjusted in the Brushed Mode. For further flexibility, the Li-Po Cutoff Circuitry can be activated in all of the throttle profiles, and Motor Rotation Direction can be activated in any of the three brushless profiles.
The other half of the brushless system is Novak’s Crawler Sintered Brushless Motor, which is a 21.5-turn motor. This specially-designed brushless motor scales over other brushed motors because of its massive start up and low-speed torque, all without sacrificing speed. This eliminates the need to use 3-cell Li-Po packs like other out-runner motors, which adds unnecessary weight to the rig. Novak’s lightweight brushless system can tackle the most challenging terrain on 2-cell Li-Po packs.
Additional features of the Crawler Sintered Brushless Motor include sensor-based commutation for precise rotor position control; a high-performance sintered rotor for stronger motor braking power and improved performance in higher temperature conditions; an oversized front bearing for extra durability and extended life; ribbed aluminum end bells to reduce weight; and a solder tab system for flexible soldering options.
