This is the Novak EDGE 2S Brushless Electronic Speed Control, with a factory installed Tamiya Connector. The EDGE 2S Brushless ESC is an incredible combination of affordability and performance, all packed into a ROAR approved package. This ESC is perfect for all types of racing, including 2WD Short Course, Off-Road, On-Road and Sportsman classes. Featuring simple and easy-to-use on-board programming, diagnostic tools, and temperature protection, this ESC has it all. It is hard to find an ESC with comparable features at this price.

IDEAL FOR VEHICLES WITH LIMITED SPACE: With its compact and lightweight design, the EDGE is ideal for all 1/10th and 1/12th scale applications, but it is especially suited for vehicles with little room for electronics. With a footprint 35% smaller than the GTB 2, the EDGE is sure to fit in any vehicle. But don’t let its small size fool you, this is a feature-packed ESC! In addition to utilizing the same software as Novak’s popular Sportsman class GTB 2 ESC, the EDGE also boasts a low profile heat sink and an easy, “Plug-and-Play” set-up. No soldering required, just plug it in and start racing!

Novak’s new EDGE ESC contains the latest R/C technology on the market, yet remains remarkably easy to use. Novak’s One-Touch Set-Up™ circuitry allows quick and easy set-up to the transmitter. Utilizing the One-Touch button and five LEDs, the EDGE boasts 12 adjustable parameters for complete customization; allowing the ESC to grow with you while your skills improve and your racing demands increase.

As racing can often push the limits of the electronics, the EDGE is equipped with sophisticated Thermal Overload Protection to protect the ESC from overheating. Additionally, like the rest of Novak’s top-of-the-line ESCs, the EDGE features built-in temperature monitoring circuitry to determine the ESCs operating temperature with a quick tap of the One-Touch button. Complete with built-in Voltage Cut-Off circuitry for both LiPo and LiFe batteries, the EDGE has it all.

The EDGE ESC also features zero motor timing advance and meets ROAR Sportsman Class guidelines for fair and consistent performance on the track.

Novak EDGE 2S Brushless Electronic Speed Control w/Tamiya Connector
It's good, but I think the price point is a little high. For $20 more you can get a Novak gbt3 or tekin rs spec. The foot print is small, but if you are using a high powered servo, you'll have to use the glitch buster, so that'll take away more space. The motor wires are short and made for using plugs, that might be a deal maker for some and a deal breaker for others. All that said, I've never had a problem with mine, was always cool in 2 wheel buggy with ballistic-10.5 motor.)

I've ran this in my 2wd buggy for a year and I don't have any complaints. My only regret is accidentally wiring in backwards after a rebuild and blowing the thing up. I plan on purchasing another one.)
