I'm adding the works to my Bixler 2 and have a few interference questions as ideally, I want to build a nice little pod that can fit all the electronics in it that can be dropped into the top through the normal canopy.
The electronics I have are:
- 2.4Ghz Futaba RC
- 5.8Ghz 600mw ImmersionRC Video TX
- 433hz 3DR telemetry radios
- APM 2.5
- Airspeed sensor
- Separate BEC (shielded switching BEC)
- 12v FPV Camera
- ESC is mounted near engine
I was planning on the pod having the following levels;
- FPV camera and GPS (this level is open to air),
- APM and RC rx
Was then planning on probably sticking the 2 radios on either side of the pod (if possible for compactness).
From flying my Naza quad, I know GoPro's are particularly noisy and cause interference with the GPS, but the question I have is how likely are the video tx (5.8Ghz) and telemetry tx/rx (433hz) to interfere with anything?
Do they need to be placed a certain distance away from anything else? or can I build them into the pod too?
If they are better further away, will using antenna extension cables be suitable? or do the actual electronics need to be further away? is there any shielding I should consider?
Thanks in advance,
