I just did some more testing in micro power mode. With only 1 servo and the battery/esc plugged in, and the Rx plugged directly into the antenna - I was able to get maybe 10 feet before failsafe, and the controls responded very jittery after a few feet away. I got the same results with everything plugged in and on, video, camera etc. I then did a test on just normal low power mode. Plane was inside, and I walked outside with the ground station and Tx. I was around 10-30% RSSI just 10 feet outside the house, maybe 50 feet total and 3 walls between.

Does this sound like this shows something wrong? I mean obviously after my flight today and only getting 600 feet before failsafe, something is off. I looked at both the Tx and Rx, and nothing looks fried or lose, the SMA connections on both feel fine, so I kinda don't know what to do at this point. BTW these are brand new, and my first flight with it was today.
