Exclamation Tekin Hotwire just arrived, R1 Pro firmware updated v171

hey bros, I just got my R1 Pro updated to 171..finally I got hotwire yesterday, not tested with any motor yet, I'm waiting for new releases of Tekin/Novak motors.
Firmware Seems stayed at version 171 for a month or two, some1 reported, it improved some, some not on start up problems, hopefully a nicer update release as soon as I when got new motors

I just got my Hotwire with the new R1 I ordered from Stormer. Very cool. I updated the R1 firmware and then updated my trusty FX-R. Software works "ok" on Windows Server 2003, couple screen refresh issues but other than that it works as advertised. Now not only can I update my Audi's software over the web but now my toy cars as well . . .

I also ordered a Novak GTB but it wasn't assembled very nicely. Flappy portion of the on/off switch and the plastic part of the case is torqued pretty badly making the mounting surface bowed.

I'm becoming known as a nit picker on this board but I chose to send it to Novak instead of messing with it . . .

Please forgive the slow pic loading, home server with "768 up" and a max of 10 connections . . .

There's a splash screen with some help animation and then specific screens that are automatically detected when you plug a particular esc into the Hotwire usb device.

Step 1


Step 1.1


Step 2



Step 2.1


R1 screen . . .


FX screen . . .


Pretty cool . . .

Tekin products have always been solid for me . . .

There's a new version already out. 179 was released today. To install it you will first need to update your Hotwire if you haven't already with the 178. Un install the hotwire software and download the new version from our website. Then update your R1s.
