Re: ESP8266 multisensor

They are little safer too as they come with a casing around it but they are bit expensive. If good care taken installing the open modules without casing it can be used as they cost lot less.

You are right it is expensive if you buy board.B ut he replaced the chip directly on STM32 (blue pill ) with GD32 chip.But is it worth the effort ? may be not.He shows software part in his video between 23 & 28 minutes mark.Basically he used Naze32 bootloader to make it work.
