I purchased an ESP 8266 NodeMCU board from eBay because they are receiving massive uTube attention, so what's it all about? The board is marked "0.9" although the advert was for the 12E - Ho hum eBay ?. My only concerns were the LUA programming environment and how to upload the code. This Instructable has knocked all those issues away so thank you very much jainrk for your work. Regards AlanGP
The LUA environment is an "add on" language (NodeMCU boards use LUA 5.1) so apart from the obvious differences i.e. GPIO as opposed to digital and analogue inputs/outputs programming has a familiar feel - only some of the terms have changed. There are plenty of LUA code snippets out there in Internet land, which will allow you to programme the basic functions.
I just thought I'd better add that I have used Cleanflight before with Naze32, which is possibly why I had fewer problems.
Awesome! Just finished to pre-FPV standard and did a living room maiden. Everything seems fine. A couple of self induced hiccups - tried to connect using a micro USB charging cable, you can guess how that went........and one motor leaped out of its mount when I fired up the first time - isn't hot glue wonderful ? My TX is a Taranis with the Orange Walkera/DSMx/DSM2 module set to DSM2-1024, which bound easily. I'll post an "I made it" shortly. Many thanks Punkkills
