If things were as dire as you paint, nobody would be able to fly R/C planes and helis... and yet somehow, they manage just swimmingly.

The 2.4Ghz Channel list is actually very limited. For example, if there are a lot of 2.4Ghz RC planes/cars playing with you in the same flying field.
2.4GHz RC tranmission does not use channels in the way of "normal" wifi connections, transmitter uses tiny bits of spectrum, constantly changing the frequency, that's why it is so robust, compared to the wifi connection. of course it has easier job, only transmitting dozens or hundreds of bytes/sec, while wifi is designed to deal with 1000 times as much data.
(also, the RC-modded drone does not usually need the "second" wifi channel, as the RC receiver is wired to the mainboard, not using the normal drone wifi hotspot)

but anyway, i agree with your approach - for me this toy is a beautifully hackable flying computer and cutting it off the wifi is blasphemy ;)

Hmm... so you're saying that using high powered wifi routers destroyed many other people's r/c airplanes... but if you were on a MacGuyver mod with an r/c 2.4Ghz system, it would have been the same as their systems and would have peacefully co-existed just like theirs do with each other, and everyone could have flown, without anyone losing airplanes? Interesting. I suppose with something broadcasting with several times the power of an r/c transmitter, operating on the same frequency range, it would stand to reason that it could cause interference. I suspect if I got an amplifier to pump out 1000mW of a 2.4Ghz r/c radio's signal, then if you were on a router around 300mW like the other pilots radios were putting out, then it would be your drone losing control and crashing.

The disturbing part is that you say this happens every week, not that it just happened once. Maybe you should let the people flying their aircraft know that your r/c system is known to cause harmful interference, such that when their aircraft lose control and crash they will know it was because of your equipment interfering. Or maybe you shouldn't operate your system where it causes other people's aircraft to be destroyed. Unless you want to use the r/c mod... then you could fly with them and everybody would get along just fine!

And maybe they should let the FCC know. I'd be willing to bet that something capable of knocking other people's planes out of the sky is not complying with FCC regs...

ScubaSteve builds and sells the mirumod under the trade name Drontec Quadmod. He has a good website with comprehensive instructions for setting up, binding etc.... Try there:

or try the original Mirumod website at:

Yep, it is probably the same or similar enough to work it out. Bear in mind although based on the mirumod, there are changes, my version is wired slightly differently has changes to the miru code and probably has a different receiver altogether, but you should be able to work it out from the site
