Novak Is No Longer
With sad hearts, the entire BigSquidRC Bash Crew has learned that today was the last day of business for Novak. Each one of us has numerous stories about how Novak products served us well over the years and we are incredibly shocked and saddened to hear of their departure from our wonderful hobby. From their start well over 30 years ago, Novak has been an industry leader and has supplied hobbyists with countless hours of enjoyment from their products. We wish everyone at Novak the very best and hope their future holds as many good things as their past does.
Below is the official announcement from Novak-
“Since 1978, Novak has been proud to be a part of the remote-controlled hobby industry, designing and manufacturing important and innovative products to the market such as the modern-day ESC for R/C cars in 1983 (NESC-1), and the first R/C car sensored brushless motor and ESC in 2002 (Super Sport Brushless System). Our customers, our business partners, and all of the friendships we have formed in this industry have made owning and operating Novak not feel like “work” but rather fulfilling a passion.
We are announcing that we have decided to close down our operations effective today. This decision was difficult to make, as this has been a family business spanning two generations.
We are proud that we were able to continue to manufacture products in California during our 38 years in business, and we hope we have been a good steward to the industry. 20 IFMAR World Championships and countless ROAR and Club races were won with Novak products over the years and we want to especially thank our customers and race organizations for their belief in our product and their enthusiasm for the hobby.
Rather than saying good-bye, we wish to say thank you. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this incredible hobby and industry!
Bob Novak, Laura Novak, and Linda Novak”
