it's the same as novak, so should be no big deal
I own both the novak and the schulze/pletty and the novak dosn't even come close to being the same. Novak's numbers are measured a little bit differently than everybody elses. My Lehner 4200 can easily beat a novak 5800. I had video proof until rcpics deleted my video. I will have to repost is somewhere else. Basically the difference is that novak measures their Kv (RPM/V) with the motor unloaded. Many of the other manufacturers list their Kv at rated continuous current. When I get the time I will test the novak at work and find out what it's RPM is at different loading levels (10A, 15A, 20A, etc ..). I will run the same test on my other systems and then I will have an equal ground for comparison. Another difference is the power rating on the controllers. The u-force is good for 75 amps and the novak is good for 225/pack voltage. So at 7.2 volts the novak controller is good for 31.25 amps. Since torque is based on Amps (In-Oz/Amp) the higher current capability will allow a motor to put out more torque and just plain more power (P=I*V). There is also a factor of 6 is the on resistance (the novak has 6 times more resistance per phase). The novak is cheaper, but it is definately not equal to a Schulze/Pletty.
