New Optic 6 - Optima 7 RX Range issues

I bought a new Optic 6, with (2) Optima 7 Rx's. I installed each RX in (2) different planes and got everything programmed.

I binded the radio to both planes using the recommended standard binding.

Once I got to the field range check proved that I only was able to walk about 75 feet from the plane before contact was lost.....

This was the identical case with plane #2.

My friend uses an Aurora 9, so we bound a plane to his TX. We even tried it in the alternate binding mode....however, the range issue happened in about the same exact spot.

I can assure you the rx is mounted correctly, and there are no obstructions to the rx antenna(s).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be wrong?

Thanks,

DJ
