Picture the functionality and utility of two Novak Goat Crawler Speed Controls in brushed mode and Novak's Dig Unit; now, envision it in one highly programmable, inexpensive speed control and you get the revolutionary M2 Dig 3S ESC / Dual Terra Claw Brush Motor Combo. This first-of-its-kind, dual-motor compatible speed control — the M2 Dig 3S Dual Brush ESC — is combined with two Terra Claw Crawling Brush Motors — 55T This patent-pending, new controller combines 6 adjustable parameters with its revolutionary performance including a separated drag brake and dig function.

With only the addition of two brushed crawler motors, the M2 Dig controls both motors and performs dig maneuvers. In addition to the standard Dig Mode, the M2 features a Proportional Dig Mode which allows you to dial-in partial Dig Power on the fly for even finer control and precise maneuverability through tricky terrain. It also features an exceptional control on steep inclines and descents. Plus, the built-in electronic Dig Power is independently adjustable from the Hill/Drag Braking. This truly unique speed control supports both 2S and 3S LiPo!

Because of its unique features, the M2 Dig 3S is perfect for the new Axial XR10! The M2 Dig 3S ESC / Dual Terra Claw Brush Motor Combo is matchless when used in Motor-On-Axle vehicles, exceeding the performance of traditional two-system setups. The M2 ESC is also compatible with other dual-MOA vehicles, such as EnRoute's Berg, RC4WD's 1/10 Bully Competition Rock Crawler, and Clod Buster-based MOA vehicles.

SPECIALIZED DIG

The compact M2 Dig ESC is easy to install and operate. There are three fully programmable throttle profiles: Dig Mode, Proportional Dig Mode and Single Output Mode.

In addition to crawling applications, the M2 Dig 3S ESC is ideal for applications that require two motors, such as robots, boats, tanks and submarines.

ON-BOARD AND PC ADJUSTABILITY


The M2 Dig 3S ESC can be fine tuned via Novak's fully adjustable PC interface, the NovaLink. The NovaLink software is purpose-built for crawling.

The M2 Dig not only gives racers three separate throttle profiles, but can also be easily adjusted via Novak's reliable on-board setup. There are four PCB-mounted LEDs to aid in programming and two different colored external LED indicator lights, located at the ends of six inch harnesses that visibly display when a motor is locked and the vehicle is ready to dig.

This new ESC can also be fine-tuned with the optional NovaLink Programming Interface, Novak's fully adjustable PC interface. The downloadable software for the M2 Dig is purpose-built for crawling and assists in adjusting the speed control's programmable features. This software, as well as updates, will be available from Novak's website to NovaLink owners.

The powerful speed control also comes equipped with instant reverse via Novak's Zero Reverse Delay, which provides immediate power delivery in both forward and reverse directions.

NO MODIFICATIONS NECESSARY

Like Novak's Electronic Dig Unit, the M2 Dig 3S ESC does not require any vehicle modifications to install or operate. Simply plug it into any three-channel surface receiver, and you're ready to crawl! This ESC is not only easy to install into a vehicle, but it possesses countless features on its own! Compared with a Dual ESC setup, the M2 allows racers to use top of the line crawling technology with just one speed control.

The M2 Dig 3S ESC is easily programmed into most three-channel transmitters, such as the Spektrum DX3R DSM2 3CH Surface Radio, Airtronics' M8 and M11 R/C Radios, and a Traxxas TQ2,4 Transmitter

MAINTENANCE-FREE MOTOR

Novak's affordable Terra Claw Crawling Brushed Motor, which is also available individually, provides precise movement control, and exceptional torque and long-run times due to the motor's high-turn count. Additionally, the Terra Claw is extremely durable, ensuring many smooth and maintenance-free crawling seasons. The M2 Dig is also compatible with Novak's Fifty-Five and Forty-Five Crawler Brushed Motors.
