    @5:29 you talk about running a python script on Raspberry Pi. Could you please send me the link of the video where you explain that. or anything about the process. I have been trying to run a python script I wrote on RPi for some time now, but it's not working properly. Any help would be great, please?

    I have just watched another video that said that in order to program your xbee module using your xbee shield plugged into Arduino, you can just set Arduino into Reset-mode (wiring arduino's reset to gnd), which avoids the need to remove the chip (which is indeed complicated). So, can you confirm that to me? Is it true or do I still have to remove the chip to use in this configuration?
