I have experienced them with other devices operating on or near 2.4GHz (USB 3.0, ANT, BT, WiFi etc) . My apartment building is very RF noisy with errant signals coming from everywhere.
What helped me a lot was the type of USB cable I ended up using. It's a heavily shielded, active USB3.0 cable for my ANT dongle. I never had an issue with my Drivo lagging, stuck or signal dropouts. Try a better cable and place it as close to the trainer as possible before ruling out that the trainer is the fault. If you have a lot of USB 3.0 devices, get better shielded cabling and shielding for the ports if possible. They are a big cause for a lot of RF interference on 2.4GHz as well. If using BT, turn off as many wireless devices as possible and see what happens. It just may fix your issue.
I've already tried them all. Bluetooth, TACX ANT+ dongle, Garmin ANT+ dongle with shielded cable and without...It all results in delay in resistance anyways. It still takes 10sec to go from 140w to 300w in ERG mode which is just crazy.
My old kickr core was way faster with the same setup I'0m using the Drivo II, not to say cheaper. Bought it as an upgrade but I'm very disappointed.
I've used the Power Smoothing options between 4 and 10, and it seems to help keep a more steady resistance closer to the target power, however the delay in resistance when doing intervals is still a big issue and can't understand how come Elite can claim that it takes 3 seconds to go from 0 to 25% steepness and then when using ERG intervals it takes ages. 2 to 4 seconds is a reasonable delay, 10 is not.
