This video covers the radio frequencies used to communicate with the sUAS, interferences, and assessing them before flight.
- The radio frequency spectrum…that we use for communicating our remote radio controllers…to the aircraft is essential.…If there are any interruptions,…or interferences, there could be…a lost link between the controller and the aircraft.…And that could end up in a flyaway.…That is never good news.…The best way to avoid frequency interference…is to check the local frequency spectrum usage,…before you fly.…
And then continue to monitor the usage, during flight,…by using a frequency spectrum analyzer.…Most small unmanned aircraft use radio frequencies…to establish the data link between…the control station and the small unmanned aircraft.…Considerations for radio frequencies include…frequency interference and line of site obstructions.…The most commonly used small unmanned aircraft frequencies…are 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz.…
These bands are also used for computer wireless networks,…therefore frequency interference…can cause problems in areas with many wireless signals.…You could get a lost link or a flyaway.…Consult the small unmanned aircraft operating manual…
