Failsafe at 500-600 feet away

I have always had not very good signal with my taranis but this is ridiculous. My mini quad flipped over and hit failsafe at exactly 45db rssi acording to my fatshark DVR. It was only 500-600 feet away. The antenna on the taranis was pointed in that direction in a L shape. I am currently looking for a better longer range recievers then my current XSR and could use a suggestion. I also tried to cut the shielding down to match the dr-42 antenna length trying to get the perfect 1/4 wave length for better reception but it didnt seem to help much. Could any one shine some light on my situation. I want to be a safe and confident that I wont lose connection.

Thank you in advance.

Would this reciever work better then my XSR? I found them on sale for $16
