#94922 Hi

Hope someone can point me in the right direction as this is my first look at using an ESP8266 board.
I'm using the Basic4Ardunio (B4R) IDE.

I purchased a XTVTX V3 Wireless Module ESAP8266 ESP-12F WIFI Development board from Amazon and have managed to download a simple flash LED program to it.
However, it only works when I disconnect it from the IDE and as soon as I connect it, it stops.

I think I've set the correct board (NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module))

I have tried the Ardunio IDE to upload a sketch to flash the LED and output a message to the serial monitor (Serial.Println....) and it works without disconnecting anything.
But, as I mentioned it doesn't work when its connected to the B4R IDE, I have to disconnect it first.

Has anyone some thoughts on what i might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
