My NEX-5N was actually the least susceptible, needing to be at least 4-5" away (and behind the camera...). My RX100, on the other hand, needs to be 5-6" away. The worst, by far, though, is my Sony PJ710V. It needs to be 6-7", and it also causes issues with GPS reception with the Naza controller. When that camera is on, the Naza starts dropping sats. My GPS antenna is pretty much centered so it would work better moved back a couple inches.
Gary: I think you helped me with this earlier. I took your kind advice as above. I am using the NEX5N and your advice to move the camera further back and higher away from the camera did seem to help, but for just one flight or so. I have an S800, WKM, PH AV200, no FPV (I don't dare try it with these issues) and have nothing else on board to add any further EMI of RF. As I mentioned earlier; I am waiting on a shielded box for the HFG to see if this helps. If the cause of this r'oll/on yaw' or any of these other issues is in fact induced by EMI or RF wouldn't you think that just shielding the HFG board would be the answer? The fact is that I removed my camera altogether and still have these problems so I don't think it can be blamed entirely upon interference from the camera itself. As I mentioned, I have been desperate to get some assistance from HF but after three weeks of begging I have not been offered a single tip other than reverting to earlier firmware. Perhaps my statement that the WKM works better was an exaggeration but not when it comes to maintaining a level horizon. My horizons are a mess with the HFG
and with the WKM I can, at the very least, salvage something with the horizons in tact and try to re-work them from there in Premiere Pro. I will post my results after testing the shielded box and hope that this will help. More on this later, I'm sure.
