    Hi fellow pilots!
    I'm interested in attaching a payload via a 3D printed board that will be removable and attached to the stock vertical legs on the back side of the 2+ (Behind the camera). I would like to link to this payload while in flight and was wondering if anyone has tried or has experience in what RF freqs have been used without incident to the control and or camera up/down links. The payload will be an arduino package and it will be talking to a Raspberry Pi 2 on the ground.
    I realize distance and power are variables in this instance as I am an Amateur Radio Operator, but was curious of what freqs have been used.
    Thank you!
    Bob

    I use the 900 mhz datalink on mine and have had no interference issue with the 5.8 control or the 2.4 fpv.
