Novak’s New Hammer Sensored 1/10 Brushless ESC

Is your brushless power plant in need of some extra control? Novak has recently-announced a new electronic speed control (ESC) for sensored, brushless systems (2 or 4 pole) that is packed with customizable features.

The Hammer ESC is made for 1/10-scale on-and-off-road radio-controlled vehicles ranging from short course trucks (SCT), buggies, touring cars, and everything in-between. Capable of handling 2S and 3S LiPo batteries (as well as NiMh) it can handle the biggest power source you can throw at it, giving you plenty of track or trail time.

Novak’s Hammer ESC is contained in a sealed case that will keep it safe water, dust, dirt, and other forms of debris. This layer of protection means you won’t have to think twice before blasting your vehicle over “questionable” terrain and obstacles.
