The Basics of Radio Frequencies
You will notice the use of terms such as 2.4GHZ and 5.8GHZ when describing fpv quadcopter and drone aircraft. Here is what you need to know.
2.4 GHZ – is the radio frequency that most quadcopters use for the connection between the ground transmitter and the aerial vehicle. You may remember that this is is also the frequency that computer wireless networks operate on. This can cause some problems when an area (dense housing, office buildings, etc) has many wireless signals. Loss of control and flyways are just some of the reported problems. Another concern is the quadcopter interfering with it’s own on-board systems. This is due to two separate systems being on many modern quadcopters – one for control of the craft and one for transmitting the video (FPV).
