Hey Nelson I have an honest concern now, this guy seems to think like a child, and since one of the folks here pointed out that these devices truly exist and are accessible to whomever.I think that he may buy one and try to jam you with the excuse that you did it to him first just like little kids.And we both know he's that type, scary thought.Powered by Rotorquest

well, if he does that, press charges. Such a device violates virtually every FCC regulation, and intentionally constructing and using one can land a fella in serious legal ****. And if he actually does succeed in causing someone a control lock-out, you've got him on willful destruction of property in addition to the charges for building and using an ECM device.AMA 700159

Exactly why I'll never go to a local clubs field. The guys near me think they are gods and the rest of us don't know anything about the hobby. I was told my new 23% cap 232 was unsafe and that they wouldn't allow me to fly my heli at all. Closed minded asses. Anyway I found and fly at a private airfield that has plenty of room and we don't care what you fly as long as your safe and clean up after yourself.

RC clubs remind me of Golf Country Clubs. There's always a few arrogant jerks that ruin it for the other 90%. And, likewise, the biggest pains are the ones that usually can't fly or spank whitey.

Spread the word. Sounds like a great way to empty the sky whenever you get to the field.

I think you should befriend him and help him be a better pilot, so he will hopefully stop crashing.

It's hard but the right thing to do.

sorry to disagree, but there's no helping people like him. You had to have been laughing your head off when you were told he crashed again...

I'm with fhb here. Why is it the "right" thing to do? Obviously this guy has no interest in being friends, so what good would "befriending" him do? In my world those who exhibit retarded obnoxious behavior like that are treated like obnoxious retards. As they should be. There is no reason to reward such behavior as it will serve only to reaffirm it.

I say let him keep crashing, and blaming it on the guy hiding a jammer in his prosthesis. Let people see him for the tin foil hat wearing asshat that he is.
If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

Range of just a few meters, thank god .

This sounds so lame, he should go back to FM so he can blame his crashes on something other than other fellow fliers such as radio stations etc . Hahaha

The owner of a local hobby store once complained to me that the chain link fence surrounding the field was interfering with the 2.4 radios and the club should spend thousands of dollars replacing the fence. Apparently when it blows in the wind the links create a huge wave of interference. Maybe its not your leg after all.
Besides the actual discussion here, the above is actually correct. Fences and metal structures CAN cause large interferences. It can be a major problem on RF Sites. What happens is that metal to metal contacts due to looseness and corrosion create an RF diode which spew RF noise.
Trying to locate the exact source of the interference can be a very time-consuming and expensive exercise.
But saying that this specific chain-link fence is the cause, is just a wild guess and a long stretch. It could be a loose screw on a farm gate, a wire going through a metal stake.......the possibilities are endless.
You would need somebody to come out with the proper equipment on a windy day, to trace the source.

Whilst the above may be true of FM, I sincerely doubt that you would ever see any actual effect on 2.4ghz systems. It's my understanding that the receiver will only take "packets" of info with the guid that's assigned to it in the header - or at least something to that effect.

So unless that fence completely saturates the channel, and locks it out completely, you wouldn't see it right?

Besides, what can the effective range of that RF noise be?

Don't get me wrong, I'm no radio expert. This is just my understanding. By all means correct me if I'm wrong

Hey Nelson....I have an idea. Next time you go to the field, buy him a cheap control line plane, gift wrap it and present it to him. That or Grey Eagle's idea with the blinking light on your leg with an on/off switch. Personally, I like the latter better.
