    if you and a friend both had phantoms can you fly together or will the controls interfere with each other?

    P3p and p3s? Or 2 of each?

    Multiple threads on this topic previously.
    Yes, no there isn't any concern.
    I have already flown my P3P with a forum friend, flying his P3A right beside me.
    Take off, with confidence. Fly with friends, relatives, and even the oddest of strangers. ;-)

    I went to a meet up last weekend, and counted 12 Phantoms in flight at once. There was only one guy that seemed to be having issues. But he was still able to fly.

    What sorts of issues?

    Please do tell. So was the solo troubled pilot, flying a P3 Standard?

    Thanks.

    I've done it a number of times with different craft.
    The only issues noted were with an Inspire and with someone's homebuilt drone, I had to stand a little further away with my controller to stop interference affecting my video.

    If more then 2 Phantoms get close enough it will rip a hole in the space time continuum so it's not recommended.

    Well, unless you are into that whole ripped hole in the space time continuum thing.

    He was flying a P3A and got a few weak/lost signal alerts. Video feed was still good, and had full control of his bird.

    My buddy has the v2+ and I have the P3A. We can fly them but if we're standing next to each other, I get interference on my iPad mini screen. I need to step away about 15-20 feet to resolve this issue.

    Same for me, had to stand a few metres away from the other controller as there was interference on my Android tablet.

    Not any issues while flying with a friend, standing nearby.



    Love to find a way to get some blue angles formation flying using phantom on video

    I was flying my P3S and my buddy was flying his P3S... No issues with interference.

    Video of landing.
