So now that I have been flying my drone around,
some of my friends also ordered a p3p, like i have.

Now I'm wondering, is it possible to fly multiple drones (P3P) in the same area, and is there some sort
of channel setting to ajust ?

I remember model planes, usually agree on "which channel" to fly on, is there something similar for drones?  
- encrypted channels for controls ?  

Or would i actually be able to interfeer/hijack a drone if I'm closer to it, than it's operator ?  
security ?

the controller and the drone are uniquely paired.  you should have no problems.

I have a P3 and have flown with a P2V+ and P3 nearby. Both models operate on 2.4GHz so it's best to manually set your channel to avoid interference. You can set your channel manually in the pilot app. Look for a channel that's green as that will have the least amount of interference. even if you're not flying near another drone, I've found it's best to manually set your channel before every flight in a new area.

The "channel" you're referring to is not for the control of the aircraft. That's for the Lightbridge system that feeds video back to you.

Let me rephrase that - that's my understanding of how the system works. In "normal" FPV operation, the quad is running under control of the operator on 2.4 GHz. This system uses a technique called "spread spectrum" and once a transmitter is "bound" to a specific receiver, the chances of interference from another one close by is not impossible, but very unlikely. Also, in "normal" FPV operation, the video information goes from the quad back to the ground on frequencies in the 5.8 GHz range. And that's typically with an analog signal.

DJI is NOT using 5.8 GHz to send their video signal *and* the video signal is digital, not analog.

With today's technology, a group of RC flyers can all fly without the danger of interference from each other that we used to experience in the past. Despite that, I've seen comments from DJI that you should not fly with more than four or five others around. I've not really seen a good explanation of why they feel that way.

The manual recommends no more than three Phantom 3's that the same time.. Probably due to video feed interference..
