I was using a OrangeRX 9CH with a satellite. I didn't do the 30 pace test. Flying here just outside of Atlanta I would expect the 2.4 spectrum to be pretty busy. That's the very first time I've ever gone beyond the range of my DX8. I may have been able to push it a little more but I was afraid of losing it. I've already lost 2 planes in the past month so I didn't want to make it a 3rd.
