Esp8266 mounted in the RM1

Once the internal micro controller is removed, the space is perfect for the esp8266-12 breakout pcb. Using the existing voltage regulators and led driver circuits proved to be a piece of cake.

With a little investigation I was able to trace the onboard connections to be used with the esp8266.
