Today i got first contacts between ESP8266 and Arduino Uno.
One Major drawback is, that the tx/rx is occupied by the ESP8266.
So once you can't really see whats going on and second you can't flash the Arduino when connected.
I added the EA DOG Shield to my Arduino to get some Response from the communication.
But viewed from now it is still some way to go.
I wonder if it is normal, that the ESP8266 gets hot.... i used the Schematic like from the ESP Breakoutboard.
BTW: Don't connect USB+ and Voltages > 5V together... PC did't like it (Rebootet) but i hope no further damage is happened.
