I will see if we can add some wired photos. The RCCA piece did have wired esc photos; the battery and motor wires (and the TC module wires) are all on the same side of the controller.

Default Single-cell compatible?

Is it ready to go for 1S?

All Novak escs (brush and brushless) work on low voltage: 1S or 4 NiMH. So the Kinetic will work well for single cell racing.

It does not have the new SmartBoost circuitry built-in, like the Havoc 1S, which we customized for single cell.

What are the chances the software will be Apple OS compatible?

The Kinetic will allow racers to enable the motor over-heating protection, if desired. Don't know what the cut-off motor temp would be.

I wish it had native OSX support but love my VBox virtual XP machine for situations like this. I highly recommend it (and I've been doing virtualization with VMWare for years).

I've been awaiting this release for a while as it was hard to leave team orange for the other guys who were doing the advanced timing that was required to stay competitive in stock onroad racing.

At the Chicago show, our Kinetic software is running on a cheap netbook. Apparently, our interface works just fine---not too many graphics.

does this unit share the same internals (fets) as the GTB, or is it uprated in it's current handling capacity?

Still struggling to find a speedo that will run a 3.5r w/o routinely thermaling.

The Kinetic hardware is a new design. The on-resistance of the Kinetic is the same as the GTB.
