Damn...let me be the first one to say it...cuz I know I won't be the only one...LOL....a BLUE Novak????

At least when they knocked it off, they used a removable sensor cable.

That's very interesting! The sensor harness is removable, which we haven't seen from the Novak motors. It's got the Novak style solder tabs, though, which we haven't seen on the LRP or Feiago motors. It doesn't look like one of the Feiago clones, and the Hacker we saw earlier didn't have the removable harness or the tabs.

So, who the heck makes this motor? It seems to have all the best features from the different motors on the market. If it's a deal with Novak, I guess it means we may see a removable harness in the future. If it's LRP or Feiago, I guess that means we'll see solder tabs from them.

Or did Losi start developing their own motors?

Or did Losi start (knocking off) "their own" motors in Taiwan?

Betcha that's what they did...

That's a small brushless ESC. I also see the power switch for the ESC has a Spektrum look about it. I wonder if Horizon/Spektrum/Losi are working on their own line of BL ESC's and motors to release under the Spektrum brand? The motor doesn't resemble anything that's currently on the market, and the ESC is dinky. I've also never seen a sensor harness with all blue wires. Very interesting things are afoot.

It's not out of the question. My money is on a Spektrum brushless system, though. It would fit in quite well with their current line. Who knows, though, Losi and Novak have a prior relationship with brushless stuff, so maybe we're seeing a glimpse at their future.

One thing is for sure. That wiring job is sweet

You know what would be cool...if they stuck a Spektrum (or other compatible) receiver inside the ESC.

I've heard from a knowledgeable source that it's definitely possible space and hardware-wise.

The on/off switch is identical to the one on my GTB...

The ESC looks like a blue XBR...

But that BLUE color -- Hmmm????

The switch looks like the OLD style GTB switch. My newer GTB has a low-profile switch that doesn't look anything like that. Hrm.

The pins and sensor harness are in a different configuration and place on this ESC than the XBR, the best I can tell. The XBR's sensor connector isn't near the pins for the fan, receiver, etc.

My moneys on Novak, They can make these things any color they want, so its not out of the question to make it blue. Losi probably spec'ed out the removable sensor wire, its about time. Wish current novaks came with the removable wire harness.

The removable sensor wire concerns me for use in modern touring cars except the JRX-S. On most cars, that sensor connector will be right on the side of the car and can easily be hit in a crash. What does a sensored controller do without all or part of the signals that come from that connector?

Novak has had no part in the development of the system in the pictures in the above links.

Doo bee dooooo! Another player, then? If that BL ESC is as small as it looks, and it doesn't suck, things are going to heat up.
