With the Reventon series of ESC's, the bluetooth settings adapter. Will that only work with Android or will it allow you to connect to a PC as well?

You will be able to connect to it via iPhone/iPad/Android, as well as PC connections still.

For the Reventon S and R...it will come with a programmer card that has a USB connection, that you can connect to window base program via computer and do all the adjustment like the old time (yes, including firmware upgrade/update). But this time, no more LCD card cause the card that come with the ESC will connect to the computer, free of charge.

Only ESC that does not come with the programmer card is the STOCK CLUB RACE version (just like the old one). But this time the STOCK CLUB RACE version of ESC can be adjust without the programming card. via the on board button on the ESC.

Thanks for the Info..

Can the program of the Reventon R be adjusted in finer details such as: turbo timing, punch level, etc??

hmm.. I am very tempted by it..

My understanding is that to get the wireless option you have to now purchase the wireless module is this correct and how much will this box cost us now? I guess the good thing is if you don't want the wireless option then you still get the box to make changes and do software upgrades included instead of having to purchase that separately like before.

I am interested but I would like to know total costs upfront instead of being blind sided like with the product this is replacing.

Reventon S and Stock Club Race...STOCK"0", aka blinky

Reventon R.....MOD "0" (mod no boost software)

Reventon PRO............secret stuff, new software with boost.

Boost software for Reventon S and R are in testing, I am not sure it will be out when the ESC are released, but it will be soon after.

P.S...GT series of software cannot be cross-over to the REVENTON series ESC. They are not compatible.

Yes, eventually....once the Turbo/boost software released (will be after the release of the ESC because we are still in the testing phase now), you will be able to use it and adjust all the parameter just like the current GT series. Only, BETTER....

Remember, even the Reventon S series can have benefit of the future boost software. Talk about the low-budget boost unit for fast club race.
