Changes to resolve https://gist.github.com/crcastle/6bab21445c857993d1d8:

  • Wiring issue: I left CE from nRF24L01+ unconnected and instantiated the RF24 radio object with RF24 radio(15, 15);. This is incorrect. Connected CE pin to GPIO2 and updated instantiation as RF24 radio(2, 15);.

Unresolved issues/changes:

  • In RF24.cpp, I had to change every call to printf_P to printf.
  • radio.printDetails(); crashes the ESP8266. I don't know why. This might be related to the above point or some other issue with Program.
  • In RF24_config.h, I had to change #include <avr/pgmspace.h> to #include <pgmspace.h>

sir which esp module are you using?...i am trying to make this work with esp12e and nrf24 for days with no success...you used rf24(2,15) call fro ce and csn pins but i have seen that gpio15 should be pulled down and gpio2 to be pulled up fro normal operation of esp12e...can i change these pins? and what about CS0 pin on the HSPI header pin in given link?

Hello, I apologize, but the tx module uses an Arduino or an esp8266 (NodeMcu)? from the use of the pins you have inserted it seems to be referred to an Ardunio.
I can not make nRF24L01 work together with NodeMcu
