Re: Dust off those 72 mHz

Do these just jam, or are they capable of actually "hi-jacking" your aircraft? Now that would be a feat. Seen it on an episode of Hawaii 5-0 (with a sweet looking quad I might add). I think current binding protocols would prevent that from happening, for now. Maybe this is where we see another future requirement for every aircraft to have a simple GPS, autopilot and RTH system installed. It sucks that we have to be alert for these ever growing threats to an otherwise entertaining hobby.

Re: Dust off those 72 mHz

And with 72 all you have to do is fire up a transmitter on the same crystal that can be bought for very few dollars and do it from a lot farther away.

The sky is not falling.

Don't fly your Quad in public places.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

I hate to break it to you but the Tech savvy nerds are the ones getting into Quadcopters.

There is far more fun in flying these things than in spending a bunch of money to make a wifi jammer.
