I can already tell you what your problem is: antenna polarization. Your antenna needs to be straight up or your signal strength will be much less.

You can also upgrade to a much better antenna that will greatly improve performance. I fly an inverted Vee antenna as do many here on the FPV forum. It's easy to make, but I can make it for you if you need: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...php?t=1159968\
