Press release from Novak Electronics (via Facebook):
Through the years, we have met countless wonderful RC enthusiasts, lovers of the hobby, passionate racers, and down right good people. Novak has been a mainstay brand of the RC community for decades, and we owe much of that to the hobbyists we have been fortunate enough to meet and work with.
It is with a very heavy heart that we make the following announcement. Today marks the final day of Novak R/C.
It has been a wonderful 38 years. We have made more friends and had more fun doing what we love then we ever thought possible. The decision to close our family business did not come easy. Novak was driven by a good hobby experience. Making products that made your RC life easier, in the United States of America. We manufactured our own product under our own roof for nearly 4 decades. We thank you all for being part of this awesome ride. We leave proud of our brand, we leave proud of our products, we leave proud of our staff, and we leave proud of all the friends and family we have in this wonderful hobby world.
