    Awesome for all the reasons that it is. One suggestion if I may, is to come up with a rubbery, foam block that's the same height as the header, so ensure the ESP01 module doesn't get physically stressed if it's banged hard or wires in the controller box end up pushing on it when the lid is closed. I broke one that way which is where I got this from.

    An excellent idea.
    Have you tired something, just to make sure it doesn't interfere with the antenna function?
    Yes, I know the antenna is physically on top, but, you never know....

    Yes, any time you put ANYTHING next to an antenna, rubber, plastic, paper, whatever, it changes the characteristics of the antenna.

    What you CAN do is solder the ESP module directly to the board and let the pins stick out the bottom. Then you still have access to the pins from below to reprogram the module if the need arises, and they don't hamper plugging it into an XBee header. I haven't done a lot of testing with this method yet, but I suspect its close proximity to the lower PCB may have some effect....

    This may be a dumb question, but is there a reason you could not make the ESP board on the top of the xbee snap in? That way it would only be one board and you would not need a connector at all.
    I'm sure there is a reason you did not do that, but I thought I would ask anyway.

    Yep, the existing XBee Snap-in stock level!

    Sure, you could, but then you get to solder QFN32 packaged chips. Also, it's a lot easier to get assembled modules with the ESP8266 on it from eBay than to get the chips...

    ...a limited number of ESP Snap-In and Flashamater kits are in the store.... more on the way after the Chinese New Year shutdown ends....

    We had no idea that this product would jump off the shelves like it has. Fantabulous! What a great way to put those Xbee-controlled units into DMX or high-speed Renard use by putting them on a wi-fi network...
