View Full Version : Radio frequency question - drone remote & 2nd wireless video feed

09-25-2017, 12:03 PM
I am flying a DJI Inspire 2 UAV and have been enjoying the capability of feeding video to a 29" field monitor using the wired HDMI out from its remote controller. I recently purchased a Vaxis 1000ft wireless video transmission system, which would free me from the physical tether between the radio controller and the field monitor.

The radio controller switches between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz transmission, depending on environmental factors, but can be manually set to either. The drone, according to DJI, is controllable to a maximum distance of about 2 1/2 miles - much farther away than I could legally fly it since that is beyond visual range from the operator. The Vaxis system operates between 5.1GHz and 5.9GHz on 10 user-switchable channels.

Since the Vaxis system and the DJI remote controller, in theory, could overlap in the 5GHz range DOES THAT RULE OUT USING THE 5 GHz FREQUENCY RANGE TO CONTROL THE DRONE WHILE USING THIS SET-UP FOR A WIRELESS TRANSMISSION FEED?

I'm no tech guy but this seems like an obvious conflict - or maybe there's more to this that I simply don't understand yet (??).

Any comments?
