This is the Novak Eiger Crawling ESC/Rock Star Brushed Motor Crawler System, with a 55 turn Rock Star motor. The Eiger mountain towers amongst the giants of the Swiss Alps topping some 13,000 plus feet. Let Novak’s Eiger 2S/3S Crawling Brush ESC power you to mountain-high adventures as well! The tiny Eiger is packed with all the features you need, and is easier to use and more adjustable than any ESC in its class. Tuning on the rocks is as easy as 1-2-3. No programmers or wires to fuss with! With four on-board adjustments, the Novak Eiger Crawling ESC can be customized to suit any type of crawling.
HEAVY-DUTY BEC The Eiger is compatible with 2S LiPo packs and has a built-in, heavy-duty 2-amp BEC that will power high torque single servo setups with ease. The Eiger is also compatible with 3S LiPo packs! Simply install an external BEC and enjoy the wheel-spinning good times of 11.1 volts! Yee Haw!
NOT JUST FOR CRAWLING The Eiger ESC comes ready to crawl, and will default to the normal rock crawling settings: forward and reverse with high-power drag brake. Not only can you adjust the power of your Drag/Hill Brakes via the simple on-board programming, but you can turn them off completely. This will set the speed control in normal “Basher” mode with forward, brake, and reverse operation -just like a regular, non-crawling ESC! It’s the best of both worlds. Crawling and bashing!
ROCK STAR EXPERT CRAWLING BRUSHED MOTOR These new Brushed Crawling motors replace Novak's previous 45T and 55T Brushed motors with newer and more durable technology for problem free crawling. They are Sagami built with high-quality materials. Rock Star motors are available in high turn counts (35T, 45T, and 55T) for maximum torque and long run times!
Rock Stars are completely rebuildable with an easily accessible commutator and replaceable brushes and springs. The brushed motor is also outfitted with dual-ball bearings for a smooth and efficient ride, and high strength magnets for unmatched brush-motor performance. The motors are thoroughly tested by Novak to ensure optimum performance.
Designed especially for the demands of crawling vehicles to maneuver over the toughest terrain, and also works great for non-crawling applications
