FPV gopro 3+ boscam 5.8mhz 600w signal problems

Hi there,
I'm flying using my gopro instead of my sony fpv and the range is about 800m before signal loss. Then a slight panic.

Last week I lost my hexa and after spending 4 1/2 hours looking for the thing gave up. But luckily left a contact number on the drone and got a phone call to collect drone.

Is the gopro interfering with the signal? Need at least 2000m for what I'm using it for. Seems better when the Vtx is facing me as opposed to vtx away from me.

Do I need a 1000mw system? Am using 32channel boscam to fatshark googles. Using clove leaf antennas

Make sure that the Gopro WiFi is OFF. The WiFi is on 2.4G and it will interfere with your receiver.
