GoPro Hero 3 WiFi Warning!

Warning! The GoPro Hero 3 wifi interferes with the 2.4Ghz signal! Do a range test before flying with the wifi on or you will loose your tricopter and brand new GoPro in the swamp like I did! I am searching for it this weekend but I don't have high hopes of finding it.

Are you really surprised that wifi and 2.4GHz interferes with each other?

hmmm, ya, someone didn't do their research.

Good luck finding it. Next time fly over better terrain the first time after making changes to your platform.

Wow. Sympathy is in short supply around here this morning.
Best of luck with the search, and thanks for the warning!

Two minutes reading the stickies at the top of the page would have told you this is a bad idea.

I mean channel hopping, frsky accst, etc can eliminate the problem, right?
