DJ, your antenna layout looks great, and range should be at least double the distance you can see - on the order of 1-5 miles depending on terrain and Wifi, and should be similar to Spek, though likely greater. I think you must have something on the quad causing interference but it could be a broken antenna wire or other issue. Try the RX in a plane and/or a different RX in the quad.
I'm going to try a different Rx, different S.bus cable and start there
John at Futaba said if it goes 1000feet there isn't anything wrong "per Futaba"
