Hobbywing WiFi Express Smartphone ESC Module
Wow! These are pretty cool. I have two of them, one on my 1/10 on-road car and one on my 1/8 buggy. They are easy to set up and use. No program card or cables to deal with. I use with iphone, I hear that the Android app is not yet available but soon.
One tip, if your esc doesn't have a separate program port like on the SCT-pro you can use the included y-adapter which has all female ends on it and change one to male and plug that into your fan/program port on the esc then plug the WiFi express into one of the y-ends and your fan into the other end and disco! It works great. I am a big Tekin fan but with stuff like this I am changing most of my Tekin's to HW.

Hobbywing WiFi Express Smartphone ESC Module
Very nice tool to have. I really like seeing all of the profile on one page on the Ipad. It's just easier to navigate and no fooling around when updating the firmware. One of the nicest purchases I have made lately. I have used on JustStock, SpecStock, 120A V3.1 and RX8 plus.I would recommend to friend.

I bough this out of necessity but it works great. I had to fix the iOS bug but still had it working right away. I am very pleased with this purchase.

This wifi Express really works great...yes at a moment a lot of people were having difficult time connecting using their phones. I finally figured it out after paying close attention to the instructions. First turn on your transmitter then the esc on (wifi Express already connected to esc) then using your phone under settings turn on wifi and establish a connection to wifi express. The first time you connect I suggest changing the name from HW wifi to your personal ID what ever you want to be, also create a simple password that you can easily remember. After wifi connection is identified turn on your hobbywing app. Make a connection and there you go. It works everytime for me even at the race tracks where no one interferes with my connection. It used to be that everyone one was turning on their app before making a wifi connection that was the reason why no one was able to make it work right.

Hobbywing WiFi Express Smartphone ESC Module
After a few days of aggravation from it not working with multiple escs and the 2 phones i had to connect it to. i found that it wouldn't work with my smartphones because they weren't smart enough. Well they had an older operating system and i found the requirements of what it needed to run to be difficult to find.

Excellent ESC programmer, very simple to use. A bit on the expensive side for a one off use, but I'm using 2x XR8's and an XR8 SCT, so it makes it well worth the price

Hobbywing WiFi Express Smartphone ESC Module
I have had other related devices for RC aircraft, so Im thinking why not bluetooth; it should be bluetooth not wifi, so it doesnt take over my wifi, & cell connection on my smartphone; what if I had only an android tablet with only a single wifi. Not everyone owns an apple device or wants to. The instructions are in engrish context, & steps were missing on connectivity such as where it is supposed to connect; it said connect to the reciver which is correct if its a reciever supporting SBUS but if it doesn't you wouldn't know, & think its broken or trash, possibly like alot of tech with poor instruction translation. This was the case for me because I am trying to learn how to get it working, & heavily depend on the instructions. There is a video that goes through the steps. I was able to get it working after a couple hours. It works slow & the software or instructions have no troubleshooting steps. Its really easy to tune though the interface, but needs setting explanation....

Update is, do I have to take 2 hours out of my day to tune an ESC? This is very inconsistent & is no longer connecting to the hobbywing app, neither the instructions or the online videos help, & 2 brand new hobbywing ESC's I cannot tune. Dont purchase items that will only end up potentially wasting your time, shortening your life, & runing your weekend. Returning to Hobbywing on Monday.

Update 2:Its been almost 2 weeks after submitting an RMA request, no response, no nothing, I call, & there is no customer support line or anyone to email or respond. Very poor customer service.
