Where do you guys place your antenna/vTX? Wich antenna do you use?
Max range so far is 3.2 km (2 miles)

Thanks in advance!
I have same set up. You might just need to separate your ground station antennas apart more. I haven't seen any interference with 1.3ghz and 433mhz on mine.

Well I spent an hour and a half trying to take off over and over before I finally made the right adjustments. I ended up needing to adjust the elevator control arm and move COG back a bit from recommendation. I used up a lot of battery and time so I didn't have a full tank when I finally did get her up, but I was still able to hit 3 miles before I ran into time constraints and had to turn around with plenty of juice left. Next goal is a more realistic 5 miles. Then 8 and 10. Video link to come tomorrow.

And here it is.. I was able to cruise at 30mph drawing only 6-8 amps, which was a huge victory in and of itself! The flight out and away begins around 4:30.
