Novak Electronics introduces the Eiger/Terra Claw Motor Combo- 35T (#3231). This new combo sets a standard in brushed motor and speed control combos with more affordability and versatility than any other ESC on the market. The ultra small Eiger ESC, and super affordable Terra Claw 35T motor have been combined to give crawlers and bashers alike a low-cost, feature-filled system that is suited for just about anything!

Versatile Controller

The Eiger ESC has been a proven platform for Novak and has adjustable tuning options and multiple profiles for both crawling and non-crawling applications. The Eiger’s Crawling Mode has forward/instant reverse, with high power hold/drag brake, which is available in 3 power levels. Its Basher Mode has standard forward/brake/reverse operation that is suited for non-crawling applications and rock racing. For the robotics fans, or folks building tank track-type vehicles, there’s also a Servo Mode that simply offers proportional forward and reverse. And, if the driving profile needs to be tweaked, the Eiger has multiple, on-board adjustments for the perfect feel and operation─ no PC to lug around or complicated programming to deal with.
