Is it me, or do the new Immersion 5.8ghz 600mw Tx's suck

I've got an Immersion Uno 5.8ghz receiver coupled with an ibcrazy 5.8ghz blue beam whips on both the tx and rx

It seems like I can get maybe a few hundred feet and lose signal.
Tried both the standard ant's and the bluebeams.

I've got the three lobe to the tx and the 4 lobe on the rx

Anyone running the latest version 600mw Immersion 5.8ghz TX and experiencing less than stellar performance?

Have you tried out other 5.8ghz gear from other companies? because I'm thinking the frequency in general sucks not the gear. I spent a crap load of money on iftron 5.8ghz and although theres a slight better picture it doesnt compare in terms of range with frequencies such as 1.3ghz. This is because of the frequency and no matter what expensive gear you have this wont change. Ofcourse I only realised this after I learnt anything about RF

I'm sure some people will swear by 5.8ghz, where you fly might make a difference I guess.

You shouldn't lose signal at a few hundred feet. I have been out 600 meters easy using the original dipole antenna and the fat sharks recevier.

Check if you have a left/right hand antennas mismatch.
The expected range without antenna change should be more than 1km.
The crimping of central pin of SMA plugs can also be an issue.

I bought the ant set from readymaderc
the bluebeam rhcp whip set so they better be matched up


I'm going to see if I mistakenly isolated the ground somewhere from the 12v cam, ezosd, or transmitter.

it could also be something as simple as a weak/faulty tx or rx.

By the way, where/what is a good 9 to 10" monitor that doesn't blue screen.
I tried a Pyle 10.4" widescreen, but it doesn't allow for blue screen disabling.
