What it will interfere with is your ability to see what the copter sees real-time.
Depending on technologies used, the live video from wifi could be very several hundreds ms delayed, making it useless for FPV.

Not to mention the very limited range of WiFi, you will be lucky to get 100 feet out of it. Even if the delay is acceptable, the range may be the showstopper.

the best use of backpac wifi, IMHO, Will be for framing shots from your phone when using the gopro in a non live out scenario.

I am going to reserve judgement until I actually try it.It would be great if it would work for short range FPV, but I am not counting on it.
