Novak Electronics 1731 HAVOC SPORT 1S BRUSHLESS / BRUSH ESC For RC Model Car
Novak introduces the economical, easy-to-use Havoc Sport 1S Brushless/Brush ESC (#1731). Drivers can now ditch the pricey two-cell and above Li-Po packs, and sport the first speed control with specialized internal Novak Smart Boost™ circuitry. This innovative technology allows drivers to power their vehicle’s electronics on a single 1S Li-Po battery pack without installing additional external boosters or receiver packs. The ingenious ESC simplifies installation and operation, cuts down on vehicle maintenance, and, most importantly, ensures that your vehicle’s electronics are powered properly. This ESC is ideal for beginners and local, club-level racers, and will excel in the Oval, World GT and 12-Scale racing segments.
SMART BOOST AND BEYOND
In addition to Novak’s embedded Smart Boost™ technology, the Havoc 1S offers a simple interface, making the ESC completely programmable with a vast number of customization opportunities. One parameter, in particular, is Novak’s Throttle Curve that gives drivers the ability to experiment with two throttle responses that range between a quick burst of power to a smoother, more controlled low-end power delivery. In addition, the Havoc’s Brake Frequency adjustment contains seven degrees of adjustability from a smooth and controllable brake to a more abrupt and grabbier feel. Moreover, Novak has also built into the ESC a 1S Li-Po Cut-Off Circuitry feature, which prevents the battery from going below the critical safety voltage level. For further racing opportunities, Novak installed a Reverse Disable feature to turn the Havoc 1S into a forward-only brushless system for club-level racing.
The Havoc 1S also includes a Novak Glitch Buster Capacitor (#5626) to eliminate noise generated from the servos.
The Havoc 1S ESC and SS Pro motors contain Thermal Overload Protection circuitry to protect the system from overheating and damage. In fact, the ESC will only operate with brushless motors that have built-in thermal protection that follow ROAR guidelines, such as Novak’s new Ballistic Brushless Motors (#3603-#3621). This sophisticated feature ensures a fun day at the track without the worry of overheating. For the complete list of compatible motors
