    I wanted to know is it safe to fly the phantom 2 while running other radio controlled vehicles that are in the 2.4ghz range? I have some friends that are into cars, trucks, boats, planes etc. I thought it would be cool to get some video of them.

    You should be fine 2.4 ghz systems has a very strong bind between transmitter & receiver.Unlike 36mhz where it is an open system susseptable to frequency clashing & interference.

    Unless there are 40 of you at same time, shouldn't be a problem!

    Most defiantly I fly jets & have hovered over the field filming take offs ,landings & high speed passes.there would need to be over 40 radios turned on to get any interference even then the phantom should land itself at its takeoff position if you loose signal but as always correct preflight is essential.Happy flying.
