Default Novak brushless reversing???

Help. I just installed a novak brushless into a project of mine, and forgot that the motor has to run in revers.

I cant find anything about it in the instructions. I dont want to damage the unit. I was hoping to get it figured out this weekend.

Thanks in advance
Kevin

Default Huh?

It runs the same way as any other r/c motor...the ESC has 3 reverse profiles and 3 forward-only profiles.

I installed an adititional gear reduction unit on the vehicle I am working on. I need the motor to run reverse rotation. I can reverse the stick for the control, but thats not the issue. When you would move the vehicle forward, and go to hit the brakes there are none. When going in reverse, then return, and go forward the vehicle slows to a stop, then slowly starts forward.

The extra gear reduction brings the fdr from 9.19 to 1, all the way to 96 to 1. I needed to slow the control of the vehicle to have a max speed of about 6 mph.

Is there any way to have this motor setup go in reverse rotation. Can I switch some wires around or reprofile the controller?

Thanks
Kevin

When we setup our plank brushless motors to run in reverse (as pushers) we just switch the 2 outside wires leaving the middle one intact...

Have you tried that?

No, I have not tried any switching of wires. Its actually not my vehicle, or speeder. I am building it for a large company. I don't want to have to buy another one, if it gets damaged. I thought about taking the motor apart and turing the amature around and having it come out the other side, and have the power wires on the other side also. Don't know. The motor you ran the wires reverse, was it a sensored motor, or not?

the novak is a sensor based motor... not sure if reversing two wires will solve your problem...
i think the sensor will kick in and make it run the way it should...
