    OK, call me crazy, but I want to do everything possible to remove interference conditions. After reading how the GoPro's are known to be noisy little devices, I decided to shield it with copper foil (available at most music stores). I ordered mine from amazon.com at:

    Unlike others I've seen on the web do this, I wanted to apply the shield to my case and not directly to the camera. Took a little longer, but it came out great. Some pics:

    Edit: weird, the pics aren't showing up, but if I right click and view in new page they do.

    I'm worried about this myself. I guess we'll see how well it works if your Phantom never flies away. I thought about lead foil, but your solution is better and much lighter. ;-)
