Despite by best efforts, I could not eliminate wireless interference between the camera and Arduino components of my blimp. In close proximity, the wireless camera drowns out any signals from my laptop to the Arduino, so it fails to respond. Why is this bad?

This was one of the steps I was most apprehensive about because of several factors: […]
I have completed the bench test of our Arduino Fio and brush-less DC motors. After some tweaking, we have a working platform, controlled by input from a remote computer. The system is also transmitting altitude data back to a remote computer, verifying that we have simultaneous, bi-directional wireless communication.
