Legal Frequencies in Drone Racing
In light of recent events, MultiGP feels it is important to revisit several aspects of the legal and permitted frequencies for video transmitters. To be clear, the current situation that brought this to light is in reference to video transmitters operating outside of the Amateur Radio frequency allocation of 1240-1300 MHz (specifically below 1240 MHz). This did not include any transmitters operating around the 5.8 GHz band that most racing drones use. It is still important that all MultiGP pilots and chapter organizers operate within full compliance of all local, state, and federal laws.
