    I came across a group a people drag racing RC cars and I was thinking about trying to film some of it.
    What issues may I encounter?

    Probably none but you might just ask first.

    I would never fly over or around people. Hate to fork out good money to lawers.

    I really wish people would stop trying to be the drone police around here. WTF.
    I was referring to issues with interference between the RC transmitters.

    The "RC cars" in his subject line did not give it away for you??:confused:

    To the original poster:- I frequently fly my P3P at a busy RC airfield and no one has ever noticed any radio interference.or other such issues. The other pilots all use 2.4gHz as well.

    Don't be an ***. If you can help please do so if not don'the waste your time. I haven't flown around anything else than other drones over the last few years but I can confirm that the p3 is inclined to lose fpv when other p3's p2's and inspires are flying at the same time. The tx to drone control stays good but video goes to hell. You might get similar problems with rc cars

    There is nothing related to RC cars/trucks that would interfere with a Phantom at all. Just as there is nothing to worry about flying around RC planes. Everyone has their own frequencies!

    Video issues with multiple P3s is pretty easy to solve with custom channel settings. ESPECIALLY after a channel hack! Which should work very well with near future updates!

    Hey man we have better things to be doing than getting into a silly disagreement over this of all things.
    A title to a post is limited and can't explain the whole situation in a few words.
    I'm not wanting to fall out with you at all mate, honestly, we've been around these forums long enough.
    Can we agree to disagree and go back to helping the OP.
    No hard feelings man

    The beauty of 2.4ghz digital radios is the ability to fly literally hundreds of aircraft (or cars) in the same area. Should be no issues. Have fun and share the vids!

    I find using two phantoms at the same site seriously diminished TV signal quality

    Ensure both are on manually set to different channels and you will not have this problem
