I've just got my hands on one of the new Bubl cameras (www.bublcam.com) so of course the first thing to do was mount it on my Solo.
Unfortunately as soon as I turn the Bubl on it kills the Solo's GPS reception - not only reducing the overall number of satellites visible, but also creating so much noise that even with 7 or 8 sats it can't get a fix.
I've contacted Bubl to see if there's any way of turning off the internal WiFi, but I doubt it will be possible, nor is something that's high on their priorities right now, so I'm pretty sure I'll need to fix this myself.
Does anyone have any experience with shielding GPS receivers from electrical noise on the UAV?
Is it better to shield it at the source or the receiver?
Does the shielding need to be wide, or can you just get away with putting it directly between the two components?
How does the distance between the components affect the interference? At the moment the Bubl is only 5cm from the GPS. Will the interference drop off quickly as I get a few more cm away?
I've tried some field testing but the results weren't consistent enough to draw any solid conclusions.
Any advice you can offer is much appreciated!
(A pic of the setup is attached, as is a graph of the number of satellites visible over the course of a few minutes - it's pretty obvious where I turn on the Bubl)
