Yea, this situation is what contributed to the end of pirate radio boats off the coast of Britain.

The boats would broadcast and interfere with the emergency signals from commercial boating traffic; so when an accident happened and people needed rescue, no one could hear them over the pirate radio broadcasts.

Of course that would run afoul of many of the guidelines from the manufacturers. In which they expect a game to run and behave a certain way on each console generation.

Otherwise you're going to have to qualify game expectations on the specific hardware configuration of your own setup; same as happens with PC gaming.

1st Gen X model + Kinect = 20 FPS
1st Gen X model - Kinect = 30 FPS
1st Gen Y model + Kinect = 24 FPS
1st Gen Y model - Kinect = 32 FPS

Planes can't just stop, and with RC aircraft becoming bigger and bigger they can cause serious damage of a liner if they get sucked into an engine. It's why pretty much every responsible club has strict rules on where they can hold flights; one of the biggest being not anywhere near an airport.

Just like with cars, the users are the ones responsible for their craft; a pilot wouldn't be able to see an RC craft, and if he did it'd be too late.

The device though is not a trivial purpose ($270) and largely unnecessary save for highly specialized uses. A DX6i which is pretty entry level, has a range of around 600m-1200m depending on conditions and RX. That type of system is not going in your average quadcopter, but rather very expensive and specially made Oct/jet planes.

186,000 Miles per Second. It's not just a good idea. IT'S THE LAW.
