I'm having trouble getting my Fatshark 5.8 system working. I have Fatshark Predators with an Immersion 600mw tx using CP antennas. The video looks good but when I get about 50 feet away the video breaks up a lot. When I turn the quad around to return home I loose signal completely. Should I have the antenna on the tx pointing down? I don't have any type of filters on the power, do I need one? I've tried a different tx, different antennas, all channels and I'm ready to just order up a 1.3 system. Could someone please tell me if they see something wrong? I've spent many hours pulling my hair out on this.

I am guessing your battery is blocking the signal. 5.8 has very poor penetration, but like the previous poster put this in the fpv section for more help.
