Our first run was small, so we have only shipped a few. We will be shipping our Shopatron store pre-orders soon. We needed to make some last-minute changes to our instructions.

This project was seriously delayed until after we shipped our Kinetics and NovaLink; the M2Dig controller uses the NovaLink software, so we wanted customer feed-back on this software before proceeding with the M2Dig release.

If anyone has questions or suggestions about Novak products for Crawling, you can post them in this thread.

Thanks for the update!

If this does everything advertised, and does it well, it will be THE ESC to run in your MOA rig.

We are shipping store pre-orders in the next few days---some of these customers have had M2Dig products on order for many months. The delay in shipping the new Axials also contributed to our slowdown---wanted to make sure our new products worked in this new vehicle.

If all is well, we will be ready to ship the balance before month's end.

As many do, I plan on putting this into an Axial AX10. What are some other options for an ESC that can control to motors? I'm still leaning towards the Novak because I feel it's a superior system but, it's nice to know what options I have before I get this kit. If Novak fails to release the M2 on time like it did with the Kinetic, it could be a long wait.

I wouldn't touch another Novak ESC if you payed me. I have had many issues with the Havok and Havok S3 ESCs this year. I run a Castle Sidewinder with a Punk R/C Dig, zero issues and great performance. I run 2 45 turn motors on 3 cell LiPo. I like having the dig and the ESC separate too, if something goes wrong with one you can still use the other. Go with the Castle Sidewinder and a Punk R/C dig you can't go wrong.

After I posted my question I stumbled upon the Punk Dig. That thing looks awesome and is available now.

We have had a separate electronic Dig system available for a long time; this is the Dig circuitry we included in our M2Dig dual esc:

CAN YOU DIG IT?

The only way to get the features that Novak is advertising in the M2 would be to run two ESCs with a 4 channel radio that does channel mixing like the 4PK.
I think I'll be patient . . .

We have added a new combo to our store that may be of interest----2 Roosters, 2 55T motors and a Dig unit:

Dual Rooster Crawler Combo with FREE Dig Module

Two Rooster Crawler/55 turn motor combos and a free dig.

We have begun shipping our M2Dig products and expect to have more units available for shipping next week.
