I am with you I like FCC, however, Asian modules for RF devices are 99% of the time NEVER FCC'd, if this module ever is, it will not be $5 anymore. And if they say FCC they are not, I have checked many times and only once in at least 10-20 checks they were.
But I hear ya!
RT5350 based, these modules have CE and FCC. They also run Linux via OpenWRT. Around $7.00 Q1000.

You have to use one of the optional antennas that were part of the FCC testing, if not you have to redo FCC/CE. Cheapest antenna is about $0.50, PCB one with a coax cable.

having 1000 sensors at home that 1000 times Linux to be maintained and 1000 OpenWRT to be configured.
No thanks. ESP8266 costs ~2$/1k (or 2.50 with all parts), easy to configure and less power consumption.
No OpenWRT fight, no Linux crap patching, nothing like that.
Sure, ESP8266 is not really fast (I/O), but perfect for things like sensors.
I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me.
