Novak Brushless owner here. This was my first electric powered setup since I'm more into Nitro. It was a little disappointing it didn't pick up last year. I hope this year will be a better year for brushless since the LRP ones are out. I'd like to see a 12th scale brushless class this year.

Any credible information on when Reedy's Neo will be released?

...saw on their site that the release has been delayed.

btw - a Buddy of mine has the Pletenberg system with a Schulz ESC and that thing hauls!

12th scales are the F1 of EP racing.

I have the Novak 5800 and am looking forward to the Neo/Sphere combo....Love not having to worry about brushes and the extra runtime is welcome

With the 3600/3700s coming out and brushless = more runtime. It'll give racers extra time to catch up if they messed up at the beginning. Now that would be some exciting racing to watch.

Yup I run brushless too. Novak 5800, Aveox RC7, Lehner Basic 4200, Feigao 10L, and a Plettenberg Shadow. The Aveox runs on it's L160 controller or my schulze U-force 75 which controls all the others besides the novak. Next systems with either be a mamba for my rc18t or another feigao for my Zagi (flying wing).

I am actually holiding off a move to Mod until a fast, quality, reliable, mainstream brushless system comes out...e.g. Reedy's Neo....and the possibilities in 1/12th scale!!!

I have a Novak and a Castle Creations Mamba... Love them both.... I'd love to maybe get a Hack or a Shulze.... I can't wait to see what kind of performance the Reedy puts out....
