I believe that Nova supports the FOD-Track interface, which should work with 
the both rotors, AFAIK.  The PC board is available from FAR Circuits 
www.farcircuits.net or you can breadboard it easily enough.  The complete 
package of schematics, board layout, etc. is available to download from the 
AMSAT website.
