    DJI Phantom 3. I am staying in a RV Resort with wifi antennas through out the park. Will the wifi signals effect the flight of my drone ?

    It is certainly a possibility. However, since wifi in RV parts is not the same quality or same frequency from park to park you may be ok in one and not another. As a test I would configure your Phantom for flight, leave the aircraft on the ground or picnic table, take your RC with smart device (again connected) and go for a walk to see if you get any wifi interference. If you do not get any interference I would make some test flights at low levels, then go higher. One thing to be careful of is flying to close the the parks wifi access points/antennas. As close proximity could change the game.

    You will also need to be mindful of RV's with external wifi extenders like the ones from WiFiRanger | Connecting Mobile Lifestyles.

    Also, you may want to ask park management if it is ok for you to fly.

    Please post back how it goes as I well be facing the same question in a few months.
