Hi all,

I did an adaptation to capture photos for virtual tour. For this I use 6 GoPro Hero 3 (see attached photo).

My doubt is if I can fly with the WiFi enabled in this 6 GoPro?

I'm flying without using the GoPro WiFi for fear of interference in radio communication with the S1000.

Thus I have to put the GoPro on the timer and trigger start before taking off. If I can use WiFi I can shoot the GoPro when convenient by remote control that is synchronized with 6 GoPro at same time.

Example of virtual tour with S1000: http://vistapanoramica.com.br/vi ... capivari/index.html

Most posts say not to use the GoPro wifi.
Since they (GoPro) are usually used with the smaller (NazaM controlled) craft, I've not seen too many comments with regard to the A2.
But I suspect the same precautions apply.
I don't see a Lightbridge air link on your craft, but again the same precautions probably apply.
The only reason to hold any hope would be the distance from the cameras to the FC.
Looking at your rig ($), I think you are wise not using it...

BTW, how do you take off & land?
Is that mount sticking down rigid?

It has nothing to do with the fc but more with the control link. If your going to be using something other than 2.4 control link then you could turn on the wifi. Otherwise I would leave it off.

Thanks, blade.
I was probably confusing the wifi interference with the interference some users found being generated from the back of the GoPro when equipment was placed in close proximity to it.

Thank you for this info and thread. I'm doing some 360 shooting as well, except we have a 14 gopro rig. I've been researching interference because we want to get a couple cameras on top of the drone to capture the sky, but I'm worried about GPS proximity.
