GoPro Wifi Backpack

They finally released the WiFi BackPack.. http://gopro.com/hd-hero-accessories...-remote-combo/

I use a FrSky radio on my quad. Whenever I turn it on it blows up my wireless network at my house. I'm thinking that it would do the same to this, but the idea of getting live video from the GoPro would be cool. Not so much for FPV because i'm assuming there is lag, but if I'm flying LOS and want to try and frame a shot I could use it to guesstimate.

I'm pretty sure that either the range or the latency of this is going to be bad enough to keep it from being an FPV alternative.

Might be fun for a spectator to watch your flight though. I'd like to ride along FPV for a warthox flight

Interesting. It would very likely interfere with 2.4 GHz radio systems and Im curious how much it weighs, looks like the BacPac has its own battery. But if it can really stream video in HD it might be worth it. I didnt see anything on the website talking about the quality of the streaming video, my guess is that the video out would be the same quality as the video shown on the LCD BacPac but I dont know what that is.

Saw a reference that streaming video is only standard, pretty much nothing non-military streams HD.
But I understand it can stream standard and record HD simultaneously.
Pretty much what I want it for.
