So, I keep hearing about poor performance with omni antennas. I went out almost two miles the other day and I didn't have much loss of signal that far out and I was still doing some hard maneuvers which cut the signal out a little but but not enough to really bother my flying. I do have my antennas spaced fairly far apart on the wings, one extended on the fin and the other fairly close. My ground station has a good 25' of separation from UHF and VRX since I extended my UHF cable on my TX. Probably going to see how it goes further out one of these days, but I have plans on getting a CP set at some point. Using a RMRC 800mw 1.3g vtx. I don't think any of my equipment is filtered either. Not sure what gives, I will take the good video feed however
