Default RE: Question about Radio Interference

Once we were outside a friends garage where he had his test stands set up. Someone came over with a engine problem so we took the plane to the test area and fired it up, the plane was going completely nuts with and without the radio on? Just for grins we went around the area looking and we found a couple of kids running there cars at a vacant lot using aircraft radios and gear.Things like John mentioned can happen a lot. We were getting hit at one field by a fellow with a park flyer flying in his own front yard. RF can happen and it is one of the reasons I like the 2.4 systems. I still have several planes left on 72 but I'm getting 2.4 RXs every chance I can for them.
