I absolutely hate it when companies say they're doing something but don't tell you what or when it hits the market.
It's like spending evening with a beautiful, intelligent, sexy woman, who looks interested, (and is interested in RC ), only to find out she already has a boyfriend.

Hey Charlie, can you give estimate on when Millenium Ultra Pro will be out? Like second quarter 2006? Or something.

hopefully, but if they delay it as much as LRP with their Sphere, it'll be in 2012...

You guys bring up a good point. So I won't Talk About it Any Further.

Thanks for the advice.

No, I don't think I'm gonna race TC this time. Maybe just some 1/12th scale. That way I don't have to worry.

And it's a control tire silly, they'll come with inserts.

The one and only feature that will be a dealbreaker for me getting or not getting a new Novak charger is the ability to charge single cells. I primarily race nitro and need to be able to charge my ingitor battery just the same as everything else.


BTW Charlie, if you ever come upon any internal parts for a Novak NES-1A servo, please let me know.

No fraz, in software business they'll announce new product 5 years in advance, then you get teasers, beta versions, etc. Have you heard the name Longhorn? I bet you have.
The reason is: They want you to wait for, and buy their software, not the competitors. They try to keep you interested, even give you the option on having influence on how the product looks and works.
Releasing fully designed product into a market that doesn't know the product is coming is generally considered bad marketing and is usually bad for business. Not to mention that it's considered bad design practice, if the expected buyer is not asked in details what he wants in the product.

Will we be able to trade in our old Millenium Pros with some extra cash for one of these new chargers? That'd be SWEET!
