So my Wi-Fi apps will see and measure the 2.4 wi-fi emmitting from my radio controller, but not the 5.8.

Is the 5.8 signal not a true wi-fi? If not, what device would I need to measure the signal?

5.8 Control Signal Strength

So my Wi-Fi apps will see and measure the 2.4 wi-fi emmitting from my radio controller, but not the 5.8.

Is the 5.8 signal not a true wi-fi? If not, what device would I need to measure the signal?

What are you flying?  Since you posted in the P3A/P forum, and if we can therefore conclude you are flying one of those, then there is no 5.8 ghz signal, wifi or otherwise.

Judging by his 'avatar' at his ID ... he has a Standard Controller in his hands ...

Why are you posting in Adv / Pro section for a standard version ?

Don't worry "LarBear360" .... he's just 'baiting me' ... he hasn't got anything else to do.

I can tell you that there is not much noise up there. I keep my RC in the 5.8 band.

Sorry all. I accidently duplicated this post, plus it landed in the wrong forum. Just can't figure out how to delete or I would.

The answer is you don't have the choice of changing frequencies on the P3S .  I apologize for the rude remarks of the other.  Just off topic attacks on myself.  No matter which Phantom you post the thread, it all comes to the Phantom section.

Sorry all, I accidently posted in the wrong thread/forum. If I could figure out how to delete, I would.

All I want to do really is compare my stock controller to my modified DBS controller. Encountered a couple of RTH lately at just 350 feet. Signal strength on the UAV/Airdata site reads 100%. Most likely interference.

No need for apology.  You were just looking for help.

You don't have to apologize at all! You are looking for answers. Nigel is not wrong about suggesting the post in the proper area though. It is just you might get a quicker response that way. It does happen quite frequently but not a problem at all in my opinion. I'm sure a lot of us will look at all of the conversations, but I do know of those that only look in the area they are familiar with. Either way you will get a response from somebody eventually. You got your answer that you don't have  choice of WiFi with your standard, right?
Just a note because you asked:
To delete a post, you have to go into "edit" and I think it is located at the bottom portion.....a delete tab or icon you can use.
If I remember you kind of have to look a bit for it, but it is there. Under the "additional options" at the bottom left I think.
Good luck to you.

Tks Ricardo ... I was not trying to offend or insult.

As you say - posting in correct section targets exact group using same gear. What often happens though is the ALL section  leads to posts going all over when poster doesn't see the section its coming from.

Just a comment - making a post in a particular section does NOT post it in others as suggested by another.
