Default NOVAK Brushless

Hi guys, I know charlie is on here quite a bit and a few of the other Novak dudes so just a quick query as I am a Novak fan, are they looking at bringing out a new brushless ESC to replace or upgrade from the GTB, something a little smaller and somewhat " easier on the eye"

It would be great to have a smaller system that, in my situation, fits comfortably in a XX4 or even XXX4.

SO whats the scoop, any plans?

Funny. So can I hijack the thread since nobody responded?

I'm looking for Charlie too... want to know if I should send in an old original SS5800 system for repair or if it's not worth it. (how much $$ for repair??)

Seriously, if it's going to cost quite a bit like I've seen in the past I would rather use it as a paper weight and pick up a used newer esc.

My SS still tries to work, but it has a weird erratic and stuttering throttle and not much power. Seems to be the esc not motor.

When I ran my XX4 with a GTB I never had any issue with fitting the ESC in the chassis. you can email charlie at [email protected] for more info.
