Maybe, maybe not.

If the video link complies with FCC requirements to "not cause interference", you may be OK. However, many imported systems could care less about FCC requirements.

Might learn more in this forum.

Probably not, but the Spektrum WILL interfere with the Down link.

Switch to a 900MHz system for down link and it seems to be better.

G'day Dave,
The camera will interfere with the RX, so always turn the camera on first, then the DX7 will not use that channel, & you will be fine.

What I have heard (never seen it... no one is doing video with a 2.4 ghz radio system around here... yet)

If the 2.4 ghz camera's transmitter is too close to the 2.4 ghz RX there might be problems.

So.. just to be paranoid... keep them separated as best you can.

The answer is yes and no. In my experience, if you keep the video transmitter separated from the guidance receiver by a couple of feet or more you will be able to use it but your range will still be affected somewhat. On the other end, your guidance transmitter will cause massive interference to the video receiver on the ground. If you are closer than 30 feet to the video receiver, all you will see is horizontal lines on your video screen. I went to 900mhz video equipment and it has worked out very well.

Later;
