FUSION ACCESSORIES
PRECAUTIONS
RADIO INTERFERENCE
BRAKE LIGHT KIT
The high frequency switching operation of electronic
speed controls can generate radio interference. Here are
some common causes of radio interference problems:
Replacement heat sinks are available for the Fusion ESC
in Novak kit #5408. These purple anodized Micro-Fin
heat sinks provide the cooling needed for the lower
operating temperatures and higher operating efficiencies,
and also help to prevent overheating.
• READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING!
• WATER & ELECTRONICS DON'T MIX! Do not operate
model in or around water. Never allow water, moisture,
or other foreign materials to get inside the ESC.
• 6 OR 7 CELLS ONLY Never use more than 7 or fewer
than 6 cells (1.2 volt DC/cell) in the main battery pack.
• MOTOR CAPACITORS REQUIRED Three 0.1µF (50V)
ceramic capacitors must be properly installed on every
motor to prevent radio interference.
• DON'T LET TRANSISTOR TABS TOUCH Never allow
the two transistor tab banks or the heat sinks to touch
each other or any exposed metal, as this will create a
short circuit and damage the speed control.
• DISCONNECT THE BATTERIES Always disconnect the
battery pack from the speed control when not in use.
• TRANSMITTER ON FIRST Always turn on the power of
your transmitter first so that you will have control of the
radio equipment when you turn on the speed control.
• DON'T GET BURNT! Transistor tabs can get hot, so be
careful not to touch them until they cool.
• INSULATE WIRES Always insulate exposed wiring with
heat shrink tubing to prevent short circuits.
STEP 1
STEP 2
STEP 3
Included with the Fusion ESC is the Novak Input Plug
SystemTM to convert the Futaba J style signal harness for
compatibility with Sanwa, KO, Kyosho, JR, Airtronics Z,
and Hitec radios. Refer to Figures 1 through 3 to change plug.
Two Micro Fin™ heat sinks have been included to provide
proper cooling for the Fusion ESC. The speed control will
operate cooler and run faster when the heat sinks are
installed. DO NOT use the Fusion without the heat sinks,
as this voids the warranty and may cause the speed control
to overheat and thermally shut down.
1. DETERMINE THE BEST ESC MOUNTING LOCATION
The speed control should be positioned away from
the receiver and antenna as shown in set-up photo on
back page. Choose a mounting position that will keep
power wires away from the receiver and antenna.
Choose a position that will provide maximum airflow
through the heat sinks to allow for proper cooling.
2. INSTALL THE SPEED CONTROL
Use the included double-sided tape to mount ESC.
3. INSTALL THE ON/OFF SWITCH
Determine a convenient place to mount switch where
it will be easy to get to. Mount switch using a piece of
double-sided tape. If your car has a switch mount
molded into the chassis, remove the two phillips head
screws from the switch housing and reassemble
switch into chassis using the 3/8" long screws that are
included in the speed controls accessory kit. Note the
direction of ON/OFF cover and reverse it if necessary.
4. INSTALL THE RECEIVER
Mount the receiver as far from the speed control,
motor, power wires, battery, and servo as possible.
These components all emit radio noise when the
throttle is being applied. If your car has a graphite or
aluminum chassis, place the receiver on its edge with
the crystal and antenna as far above the chassis as
possible. The receiver can also be mounted on the
shock tower.
5. INSTALL THE ANTENNA
Mount the antenna as close to the receiver as possible. Trail any excess wire off the top of the antenna
mast––Do not cut or coil excess wire.
The Fusion speed control comes equipped with built-in
circuitry to power two high-power brake light LEDs.
Novak's optional Brake Light Kit (#5655) comes complete with two premium quality LEDs, versatile mounting
brackets to install brake lights behind the taillight section
of the car body or onto most any vertical or horizontal
surface on the chassis, and necessary wiring.
MOTOR CAPACITORS
To prevent radio interference problems, you must have
three 0.1µF capacitors properly installed on every motor.
Included with the Fusion speed control are three 0.1µF
(50V) capacitors for one motor. Additional 0.1µF (50V)
capacitors are available in Novak kit #5620. Please refer
to Step 4 on the back page for proper motor capacitor
installation instructions.

FIGURE 1 With a small standard screwdriver, press on
each of the three metal prongs until the wires are easy to
remove. Remove wires.
HEAT SINK INSTALLATION
1. INSTALL THE LEFT HEAT SINK
Place the speed control on a flat surface and press one
heat sink (longer fins go down onto transistor tabs)
onto the left bank of 3 transistor tabs.
NOTE: Do not use too much force when installing the
heat sinks because you can damage the transistors or other
components on the PC board. Never use a vise or pliers to
install the heat sinks.
2. INSTALL THE RIGHT HEAT SINK
Press the second heat sink (again, long fins down) onto
the right bank of 3 transistors tabs.
The heat sinks should press onto the transistor tabs with a
snug fit. If heat sinks are installed upside-down or shifted
off-center, they will be too loose and will not work properly.
FIGURE 2 With the screwdriver, carefully lift each of the
metal locking tabs to the angle shown.
3. DO NOT USE GLUE
Do not use glue or other types of adhesives to attach
the heat sinks to the transistor tabs.
FIGURE 3 Insert each pin into the correct plug slot. Each
pin should "click" into place.
(Sanwa plug shown)
The locking tab must not extend
outside the plastic plug housing.
WHT = White wire terminal (signal)
BLK = Black wire terminal (negative)

CAUTION Improper installation of these wires may cause damage
to the receiver, servo, and speed control.
INSTALLATION
EXAMPLES
4. DO NOT SHORT CIRCUIT HEAT SINKS
The two separate banks of transistor tabs or heat sinks
should never contact each other or other conductive
objects (metal, graphite, etc.), or they will short circuit
and damage the speed control.

• CAPACITORS NOT INSTALLED ON MOTOR Electric
motors generate radio noise that can interfere with the
receiver. To prevent radio problems, every motor must
have three 0.1µF (50V) ceramic capacitors installed on
it. Refer to Step 4 on back page for proper installation.
• RECEIVER/ANTENNA INCORRECTLY MOUNTED The
receiver and antenna should be mounted as far from
the motor, power wires, battery, and servo as possible,
as these components all emit radio noise. On graphite
or aluminum, place receiver on edge with the crystal
and antenna as far above the chassis as possible. Mount
the antenna close to receiver and trail any excess wire
off the top of antenna. Do not cut or coil excess wire!
• MOTOR BRUSHES WORN As motor brushes continue
to wear, excessive motor noise will be generated. To
avoid radio interference, worn motor brushes should
be replaced. The motor commutator may also need to
be cleaned or trued and can be machined to help the
motor run more efficiently.
MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
Cutting or coiling excess wire will reduce radio range.
STEP 4
HOOK-UP INSTRUCTIONS
(Refer to set-up photo)
1. INSTALL MOTOR CAPACITORS
Electric motors generate radio noise that can interfere
with your receiver and cause radio problems. Included
in the accessory kit with the speed control are three
0.1µF (50V) non-polarized, ceramic capacitors. These
capacitors must be installed on every motor to help
reduce the noise generated by the motor and also to
prevent possible damage to the speed control.
Solder 0.1µF (50V) capacitors between:
• POSITIVE (+) motor tab & NEGATIVE (-) motor tab.
• POSITIVE (+) motor tab & GROUND tab*.
• NEGATIVE (-) motor tab & GROUND tab*.
*If your motor does not have a ground tab, solder the capacitor
leads to the can of the motor as shown below.
Negative (-) motor tab
0.1µF Capacitors
Schottky diode
Positive (+) motor tab
Extra 0.1µF capacitors
available in Novak kit #5620.
STEP 5
TRANSMITTER ADJUSTMENT
Proper transmitter adjustment is important for optimum
performance from your speed control. The basic throttle
channel adjustments for the transmitter are as follows:
1. Set HIGH ATV or EPA to maximum setting.
[Controls amount of throw from neutral to full throttle]
2. Set LOW ATV, EPA, or ATL to maximum setting.
[Controls amount of throw from neutral to full brakes]
[Reduce this after ESC adjustment to reduce amount of brakes]
3. Set EXPONENTIAL to zero setting.
[Controls the linearity of the throttle channel]
4. Set THROTTLE CHANNEL TRIM to middle setting.
[Adjusts the neutral position of speed control]
[Increase or decrease after ESC adjustment to adjust coast
brakes––can be used to give braking in neutral trigger position]
5. Set THROTTLE CHANNEL REVERSING SWITCH to
either position.
[Do not change switch position after programming]
6. Set ELECTRONIC TRIGGER THROW ADJUSTMENT to
70% throttle and 30% brake throw (or 7:3).
[Adjusts pistol-grip transmitter’s throttle trigger throw]
7. Set MECHANICAL TRIGGER THROW ADJUSTMENT
to position with 2/3 throttle and 1/3 brake throw.
[Adjusts pistol-grip transmitter’s throttle trigger throw]
Ground / motor can
2. CONNECT SPEED CONTROL TO THE RECEIVER
After the proper input plug plastic has been installed to
match the receiver (Refer to Step 1), plug the speed
control into the THROTTLE CHANNEL of the receiver.
3. CONNECT SPEED CONTROL TO THE BATTERY PACK
Plug the white JST connector from the speed control
into the JST/Tamiya style connector on a fully charged
6 or 7 cell battery pack (1.2 volts DC/cell). The black
wire is negative (-) and the red wire is positive (+).
4. CONNECT SPEED CONTROL TO THE MOTOR
Plug the bullet connector on the red wire (+) of the
speed control to motor positive. Plug the other bullet
connector, on the blue wire (-), to motor negative.
A wiring kit with bullet connectors and a JST/Tamiya
connector is available in Novak kit #5810.
5. OPTIONAL USE OF SCHOTTKY DIODE
The Fusion ESC does not require an external Schottky
diode. However, using one will increase the efficiency
and reduce the operating temperature of the ESC.
Solder the lead CLOSEST to the silver stripe on the body
of the Schottky diode to the POSITIVE (+) motor tab.
Solder the lead OPPOSITE the silver stripe on the body
of the Schottky to the NEGATIVE (-) motor tab.
Schottky diodes are available in Novak kit #5640.
If installed backwards, a Schottky diode will be destroyed. The body
of a bad diode will normally crack open. Replace only with Schottky
diodes that have a minimum rating of 35 volts / 8 amps.

STEP 6
SPEED CONTROL ADJUSTMENT
Before beginning this step, the speed control should be
connected to the receiver and to a charged 6 or 7 cell
battery pack, and the transmitter should be adjusted.
Adjustment of your Fusion speed control is required for
proper operation. When the status LED is red, the speed
control is in the neutral position (no throttle or brake).
When the status LED is green, the speed control is either at
the full throttle or full brake position.
1. CONNECT THE BATTERY
Plug the speed control into a fully charged 6 or 7 cell
nickel-cadmium battery pack.
2. TURN ON TRANSMITTER THEN THE SPEED CONTROL
3. PRESS AND HOLD ESC’S ONE-TOUCH BUTTON
With transmitter throttle at neutral, press and hold the
ESC SET button until the status LED turns solid red.
4. RELEASE ESC SET BUTTON WHEN LED IS RED
5. PULL THROTTLE TO FULL-FORWARD POSITION
Hold it there until the status LED turns solid green.
NOTE: The motor will not run during programming even if it
is connected to the speed control.
6. PUSH THROTTLE TO FULL-BRAKE POSITION
Hold it there until the status LED blinks green.
7. RETURN TRANSMITTER THROTTLE TO NEUTRAL
Status LED will turn solid red, indicating that throttle is
at neutral and proper programming has been completed.
8. CHECK OPERATION OF THE SPEED CONTROL
Connect the motor and check for proper operation.
With no throttle or brake applied, the status LED should
be solid red and the motor should not be running. At
full throttle position, the status LED should be solid
green and the motor running full speed. At full-brake
position, the status LED should be green and the motor
should not be running.
9. SET THE COAST BRAKE AT TRANSMITTER (optional)
Adjust the THROTTLE CHANNEL TRIM on the transmitter
to get more or less coast brake. This is accomplished by
slightly shifting the neutral position. After adjustment be
sure that the status LED is still green at full throttle.
Speed control is programmed & ready to run!
If transmitter settings are changed at any time after the speed
control has been set-up, it will be necessary to complete the
programming sequence once again.
If you experience any problems during programming, turn off
the speed control and repeat the programming process.

STEP 7
THROTTLE PROFILE SELECTION
(-)
The Fusion is equipped with dual-profile throttle circuitry
that allows you to choose the right drive frequency for the
type of motor that you are using. Modified or Stock
(+)
Keep receiver
and antenna
away from
motor, servo,
battery, and
power wires.
To check or change the active throttle profile:
Mount switch where it
will be easy to get to.
BRAKE LIGHTS
The Fusion is equipped with built-in brake light circuitry to
power two LEDs. (Novak Brake Light accessory kit #5655)
To connect brake lights to the Fusion:
1. Strip about 1/8" of insulation off of both the red and the
black small (26 gauge) wires that exit the back of the
speed control along with the battery and motor wires.
2. Strip about 1/8" of insulation off both ends of the small
(26 gauge) extension wires that are the correct length to
reach the position that the brake light is mounted.
3. Solder extension wires onto the brake light wires from
the speed control. If two LEDs are to be used, then solder
two extension wires to each brake light wire from the
speed control. Insulate solder joints with heat shrink tubing.
4. Solder end of the extension wire from the red brake light
wire to the lead on the notched/flat side of the LED. Solder
end of the extension wire from the black brake light wire
to other LED lead. Insulate solder joints with heat shrink.
Note: Some LEDs have the flat on the negative side. If LED does not
illuminate, reverse the red and black brake light wires.
1. TURN ON TRANSMITTER THEN THE SPEED CONTROL
2. PRESS AND HOLD THE ESC'S ONE-TOUCH BUTTON
Continue to hold button until the status LED turns solid
green. The LED will first turn solid red, and then it will
turn solid green.
3. RELEASE THE ONE-TOUCH BUTTON
After releasing, status LED will blink red. The speed that
the LED blinks indicates the active profile.
Quick = MODIFIED
Slow = STOCK
4. While the status LED is blinking, PRESS AND RELEASE
THE ONE-TOUCH BUTTON. This will select the next
profile and the LED will blink the appropriate speed to
indicate which profile is selected.
5. Once the desired throttle profile is selected and the
One-Touch button has not been pressed for approximately
five seconds, the speed control loads the selected
profile into memory, exits the profile selection mode,
and the status LED turns solid red (neutral position). At
this point the selected throttle profile has been stored in
the speed control's non-volatile memory (it will remain
the active profile even after speed control is shut off).
The speed control is ready to run.
