Default Novak GT-7

How do you guys set up your GT-7 for stock motors? What profile do you use? I have the new version which says to use profile 6 for stock. Anyway i just want a second opinion. Thanks

If you don't have a duration problem go for programme 6. It's the beefiest one of the lot.

Can anyone explain what the different frequencies and all the variables in the programs mean?
I read the instructions on the different programs and none of it meant anything to me...

touring
but i think what we want to know is what do all the numbers mean, not so much which program for which application, though that would be good to know as well

I have used program number 4 for over a year now. I get great response too. I'll try out the other programs.

Also, everytime I turn off the esc, do I have to "re-program" it?

ok ok... I've finally been dragged kicking into GT7-land... and coming from Cyclone territory I gotta say I'm not particularly impressed. Is it really 30% smaller??! Take into account the protruding side tabs, somewhere for the switch & giant cap to hang off and the huge schottky module... heck this thing takes 30% MORE room than the Cyclone!


Where were we?

Ah yes, deciphering what means what...


DRIVE FREQ: adjustable between 2kHz and 23kHz. Lower freqs give more punch, higher freqs will be smoother power (good for low traction surfaces). Higher freqs will be slightly more efficient.

MINIMUM DRIVE: how much you need to move the throttle stick before the FETs switch 'on', between 1-3%.

BRAKE FREQ: speed that the brake FETs are pulsed (pulse width modulation), between 1.5-5.5kHz. Low freq gives sharper brakes, high freq is softer.

DEADBAND: 5% ... not adjustable?

MIN BRAKE: 20-55%.

yeah, until you use the "one-touch programming" again.

Then it resets everything to factory default... ARRRGH!!
Even all your 7th profile programming!!!!

Christ, with the Cyclones we could do 1-touch (eg to use new TX)
and all other custom settings remain untouched.

Also we could download the settings to the PitWizard and store
multiple profiles there, and re-upload to Cyclone when required.

This is progress??

In stock I usually use #4... but sometimes we have 6 min heats so I lower it to #3.

Shoot me an email if you have direct questions for us. Most of the information posted here is fairly correct though.

Most of our team uses profile 6 for Stock/19turn. On or Offroad. For super slick tracks, or places that you just don't need all that punch, you can use lower # profiles (3-5). For the MOST punch possible we use profile 7's customizing mode and use the 1st settings.

Feel free to send me an email. [email protected].

We made the ESC "reset" after the one touch so people could easily start over. You don't have to ever do the one touch if you don't change your radio. It's is a very common mistake made, ever since the cyclones, that the one touch needed to be done a lot. That is not the case, one time is all it takes.

The footprint of the GT7 with the cap next to it, is smaller then the foot print of the cyclone with the cap next to it. We didn't take into account the switch mounting to the case because that is optional.

Again, feel free to send me an email. [email protected]

Thanks for you time guys
Charlie
