Thanks Peter!

I did finally get the ESP8266 to crash! I wonder if there is a lower level issue within the 8266 core... Hum. I am surprised that stability issues haven't presented more. I will convert an Oak and see if stability is any better.

Please let us know how you go... in both the Oak -> Arduino ESP8266 process, and if you track down that stability issue.

I amended my prior response to say "an earlier version of the ESP8266 core"... as what I was meaning was that a bug in an earlier Arduino ESP8266 core which has been subsequently fixed could still be present in the Oak's core. However, it doesn't really surprise me that the ESP8266 finally crashed... since it is playing double-duty as both the wifi management and application MCU... something has to give if the dual-roles aren't properly managed. However, it will be interesting to see how stable it can be made.
