Wifi/RC interference

Hello DIYdrone community,

I am currently getting into research involving interference issues on the 2.4GHz frequencies. I am interested in equipping my drone (arduboat) with a high power (1W) dipole wifi antenna to set up a long distance wlan on a raspberry pi. 

Antenna: https://www.amazon.ca/Alfa-AWUS036H-802-11bWirelessOriginal/dp/B002BFMZR8/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1489%20%20016454&sr=8-%20%205&keywords=Alfa+Network+1000mW+High+Power+Wirel%20%20ess+AWUS036H

RC: http://www.frsky-rc.com/product/pro.php?pro_id=105

I have read examples of people using these Alfa wifi antennas on drones, but I have not found any instances where they have encountered interference issues with these specific antennas. 

I am fairly new to this kind of problem, so I was wondering if anyone could offer advice regarding avoiding interference between 2.4 GHz devices.

Thank you,

Adam Day

  • would you migrate to 5GHz ? it will avoiding interference from 2.4GHz. it can get 3Km distance over WIFI 5GHz, not sure if it can meet your request. 

  • Wi-Fi has 14 channels ranging from 2.412 GHz to 2.484 GHz. Access points (smartphones and tablets too) often allow user to manually select certain channel. In my project I'm using Wi-Fi both for sending commands and receiving feedback.

    WLAN (Wireless local area network) channels are frequently accessed using IEEE 802.11 protocols and are sold mostly under the trademark Wi-Fi. Other…
