The only possible thing I could think of would be some kind of magnetic interference to the compass caused by the flow of electricity through the power lines.

I think you have answered your own question there then.

The only other thing to watch out for is Wifi boosters as they all operate on 2.4 Ghz too, they can wipe out your signal if you are too close to them. (That includes those mounted on mast mounted antennas for mobile phone companies, satellite tv as well as domestic home boosters)

I'm still flying happily on 35Mhz here

In short (excuse the pun) - Stay well away from power lines. It's easy to forget they are there when you are flying until it's too late and yes they will melt your machine regardless of what you fly.

I'm lucky as I have a beach just 1 mile from the house, when the tide goes out (which it does for well over a mile at low tide) I have plenty of airspace away from people, including the dog walkers and the beach is at least 2 miles long. So I have no issues and definitely no power lines to worry about.

Ps I normally fly scale but I still have a Raptor 30 v2 with carbon blades (Main & tail) so if I want a bit of fun I can still throw that about with no issues

well here is my symtoms
im flying in gps mode near home, and there is a lot of overhead residential lines criss crossing threw the area,

Phantom 1.1.1
the throttle is erratic, changes position, almost like it wants to fly away on its own

but this is first time trying the CGO1 camera under the belly, but the camera has wifi, and was working fine, and its 5.8 ghz, and the 1.1.1 phantom is 2.4 ghz.....and i flew there before with no issues, but i did upgrade firmware and re-calibrate drone before flight

SO! ?? is it the camera and drone acting up
or the new firmware
or power lines and camera and drone

but i swear the thing was throttling on its on like it was possessed, so she is on shelf for now till i figure out

thanks for any help

Take it somewhere where there are no power lines and see what it does.

I tend to agree with Wrongler above. Those high voltage lines can put out quite a strong magnetic field around them and that is quite possibly causing your problems.
