Time to take a step back and ground test with each bit of equipment one at a time.

Question:
When separating vtx from dlrx is it only the antennas that need to spaced out or is it the actual Tx and rx hardware blocks as well? Are motors and escs another potential problem to try and avoid?

Thanks all... Phil

All of those things can be a big issue. The GoPro does emit a ton of interference, and the motor/ESC are also sources of massive RFI. How are you powering your DL?
