ESP8266 adapter module fits LoRa Dorji module

Soldering the Dorji LoRa module is not so easy if you don't have soldering skills. But you can borrow this adapter board ($2.60 per 10pcs) from ESP8266 and its fits very well. Same pads distance, just few modification ( remove components) and a short on the back where the AMS1117 should be and that's it, we have a more practical module to work with. Don't forget to add a curly antenna.

Don't forget to relabel the edges with the Dorji's module values, since the labels will not be visible anymore.
