Default Novak 5800

Can some tell what could be faulty with the 5800 system is it the motor or esc.

The motor only turns after you spin the rotor to get it started.
I have re-programed the esc and transmitter etc.
The system has only 20 minutes total run time.
- Novak customer service has not replied back
- so any input that could help would be appreciated.

My first GTB was bad out of the box. It did the same thing as you say yours is doing. When I talked to Novak they said it sounded like the ESC. So I sent my brand new out of the box GTB back on my penny back to Novak. I recieved back a new unit.

Good luck

You can find complete product return information and a Service Form in the Customer Service Section of www.teamnovak.com

The problem you've described sounds like an ESC failure.

I have had 2 super sport esc's go bad. with the super sport, it's not a matter of if they will go bad, it is a matter of when they go bad.
