INFORMATION - Some useful information about 2.4GHz radio systems

Although it is almost impossible for any aircraft using 2.4GHz radio to be interfered with by another 2.4GHz Transmitter, many people still believe, based on the "hype" about the latest 2.4GHz radio systems, that they cannot be interfered with by external sources.

SADLY THAT IS TOTALLY WRONG...

In fact, one of the worst offenders is the humble but increasingly common Wireless Computer Networking that you may have in your home or office, or worse yet, that someone else may have in a building close to where you are flying, unknown to you.

So the moral here is to ensure that you fly well away from any building that may possibly have such a wireless network running. 

Occurrences of interference are fairly rare to be sure, but they have been recorded, and after all, you really do not want to suddenly find your prized helicopter disappearing into the distance totally out of your control.

Another useful thing to note is that general opinion is that the short aerial on the 2.4GHz Transmitters should NOT BE STRAIGHTENED OUT TO FLY, IT IS BETTER TO LEAVE IT BENT AT 90 DEGREES BUT POINT IT LEFT OR RIGHT
