Help!
WiFi cam and 2.4 Taranis Plus radio

Hi, I'm new in the forum. I've build my first quad, based on tarot FY450 frame, and I'd like to use my dji vc40 cam to record video (not to do fpv). Such cam has wifi always on and I'm afraid I will interfere with x8r receiver installed on back of the frame. Do you think I can have such problems?



Thanks

Not sure about your camera but GoPro with WiFi has been known to crash a lot of aircraft. You will probably have to mod the camera to disable the WiFi before it would be save to fly.

Some WiFi have to option of 2.4 or 5.8 GHz. If you can select an option that does not use 2.4 WiFi than that might work.

Thanks rcman.. that's my worry... unfortunately there is no way to disable the wifi (it works @2.4 only and the original dji phantom uses 5.4Ghz to control quad...)



today I'll do some tests @1mt high let's see

I'd definitely stay away from the WiFi. I've accidentally had the GoPro wifi running on my Hex and immediately got range warnings on my radio.
