    Hi Everyone

    Phantom 2 with a lightbridge..

    Question for experienced pros out there with the ground station -

    Will the iPad Ground station conflict with the lightbridge operating frequencies - it appears the lightbridge operates in more of the ISM band, where as the ground station appears to be general 2.4ghz.

    Will it conflict? If so, I can change the channels that the lightbridge runs on - To stop conflicting the ground station..?

    Any help is appreciated, Thanks :)

    There is a conflict with the lightbridge and the Phantom 2 because both operate on 2.4 freq. I know firsthand that there is a problem bc i tried it and lost signal on both the GS and also on the image coming from the lightbridge. Also, i kept losing reception on the ground station. The solution is to use the 900mhz freq ground station- 900-LK for $520. Since the freq is different there is no problem. I am currently using this and its working well with lightbridge. This version does not use an IPAD but rather a pc computer. Its not as convenient or simple to use as the IPAD and does not have all the same features but it works fine no problem.
