The M2 Dig 3S Dual Brush ESC (#1846) is the first-of-its-kind, dual-motor compatible speed control. Combined with two brushed motors, the M2 Dig independently controls the motors to perform dig maneuvers. In addition to standard digs, the M2 sports independent biasing of the front and rear motors to allow for precise maneuverability through tricky terrain, and exceptional control on steep inclines and downhill descents. The M2 Dig 3S ESC is compatible with any Super Crawler dual-system rig, such as Axial's XR10™, EnRoute’s® Berg™, Integy’s® Super and Unlimited Class of crawlers, and Clod Buster®-based vehicles.
The M2 Dig is also compatible with Novak’s Rock Star Crawling Brush Motors (#3537, 3547, and 3557) and and Novak's Terra Claw Crawling Brush Motor -- 55T (#3556). A cost-saving combo is also available with two Terra Claw motors (#1845).
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.
Note: An external BEC is required for operation with 3S battery packs. Novak recommends its 3A High voltage Universal BEC (#5463)
A 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.
ON-BOARD AND PC ADJUSTABILITY
- Dig Mode uses Dig Power (independent of Drag Brake) to lock one motor at a time.This mode requires a proportional switch or a simple three-position switch to operate.
- Proportional Dig Mode. This completely original mode uses a transmitter's third channel that is proportional (button or dial), allowing drivers to vary the amount of Dig Power being applied to the motor. This innovative feature provides seemingly endless fine tuning of the Dig for the ultimate vehicle control.
- Single Output Mode is for applications with single motors or operation without a 3-channel transmitter. In this mode all four motor power wires can be soldered to one brush motor for higher performance, or connect two motors and control them both at the same time.
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.
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 (#5450), 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® (TQ-3) Transmitter™
