Get to the Top with the Goat
As the R/C crawling segment gains popularity, the need for crawler-specific equipment has become greater. Novak is happy to fill the need with the Goat 2S Crawler Brushless System (#3016-#3019), Goat 2S Crawler Brushless/Brush ESC (#3219) and Crawler Sintered Brushless Motor (#3419/#3420). Novak has always felt that brushless technology is an ideal fit for crawling applications due to their instant throttle response, super low-speed drivability and explosive torque — the very features crawling enthusiasts look for.
As any crawler aficionado can tell you, crawler vehicles require precise movement control at very low speeds. That being said, it makes sense to use equipment specifically designed for this purpose. Enter Novak Electronics. One of the few, if not the only R/C manufacturer, who offer electronic products specifically designed for crawlers. The new sensor-based Crawler Brushless Motor and System are equipped with features that enable crawlers to climb over, maneuver through, and conquer the most challenging terrain.
The following four driving profiles make the Goat 2S a versatile speed control:
And if multiple profiles weren’t enough, Novak’s software experts have designed the Goat 2S ESC with a Fully-Programmable Interface using Novak’s easy One-Touch button and four LEDs. The following parameters can be adjusted in all four driving profiles: Dead Band, Minimum Drive, and Hill/Drag Brakes (except Servo/Robotic Mode). The Drive Frequency can also be adjusted in the Brushed Mode. For further flexibility, the Li-Po Cutoff Circuitry can be activated in all of the throttle profiles, and Motor Rotation Direction can be activated in any of the three brushless profiles.
The Goat 2S ESC has also been outfitted with a rugged 6 volt / 5 amp BEC to provide powerful and precise steering while embarking on unsteady landscape, with no additional BEC to purchase or install. It also employs an exclusive active drag brake that uses battery power to slow the vehicle to a wheel-locking stop, reducing the vehicle’s tendency to slide or roll while traveling on steep grades.
Additional features of the Goat 2S ESC include Zero Reverse Delay for instant power delivery in both forward and reverse when needed; adjustable Active Hill/Drag Brakes that use battery power to slow the vehicle to a wheel-locking stop; and a Built-In 6-Volt Power Output for an optional cooling fan or detail items like lighting features or a winch.
LET'S GET CRAWLING
Additional features of the Crawler Sintered Brushless Motor include sensor-based commutation for precise rotor position control; a high-performance sintered rotor for stronger motor braking power and improved performance in higher temperature conditions; an oversized front bearing for extra durability and extended life; ribbed aluminum end bells to reduce weight; and a solder tab system for flexible soldering options.
The Novak Goat 2S Crawler Brushless System (#3016 & #3019) includes everything that is needed for crawling straight out of the box. The Crawler Sintered Brushless Motor is factory-installed to the Goat 2S ESC making installation a breeze. Both the Goat 2S Crawler Brushless/Brush ESC (#3219) and Crawler Sintered Brushless Motors are also available separately.
