If you just came for the ESPHome Yaw Mill and don't care about reading or looking at my cool pics, you know the drill, go like and share my stuff, you'll find the YAML here.
You will need to solder this plug, there's almost no way around that but it is relatively easy. If you need to brush up on how to solder to the pads below, check out my in depth how to solder jumper wires to PCB pads in the Sonoff Dual R3 video as well as products I used in the video description - Sonoff Dual R3 Video.
Wyze made a nice little weatherproof door for us to easily open and close this plug! To access it you will need a triangle screw driver bit. If you do not have one, it's time to get a nice kit. You can cheap out of course and get a cheap kit, but if you want a nice one, I can't say how impressed I am with the quality on the iFixit toolkit (they didn't sponsor this). Super nice! Amazon Link
Right next to the module is GND, RX, TX and BOOT. Boot is your GPIO 0 pin that needs to be held to ground to enable the flash mode. Where's 3.3v? It's tucked up under the mains AC lines.
If you are afraid you might melt the case or the wires soldering 3v3, you can remove the board from the case, remove the two screws on the wire clamp and rotate the board out. Please do not attempt to power this via Mains AC while you have small wires attached to it or the case open!
If you only have one Ground pin on your USB TTL adapter for flashing, I use a simple solder bridged header pin to make a splitter. Make sure your USB TTL is on 3v3 and NOT 5v!
Use the provided ESPHome YAML for an example setup, create your bin and flash it up! Enjoy. Flashing instructions - https://esphome.io/guides/faq.html#i-can-t-get-flashing-over-usb-to-work
