How are you powering them? I have heard some people state that a solid power source is required otherwise they will randomly reset (throw exceptions).

They're being lowered by 6V 6A power supplies and a lm1117 5V to 3,3V 2A thing. So should not be that!

I'm pretty sure it is not power related. I've added 1000uF, 100nF, 1nF capacitors across two setups, and it still reboots. For the one powered by my serial adapter (one designed to run a raspberry pi from the usb bus) I took the power direct from an apple charger and it still does it. so that is three ESPs. The error code thrown by the one plugged in is always lmac 662

Agreed, sounds like you have a good power solution.
