    looks fine to me... the coating on the plug is just a retainer.

    Are you aware of maintaining the correct aerial position relevant to if you are flying high overhead or distance out in front ? 400' is not right for sure... Updated latest firmware and done a TX calibration ? City flying or open space ?

    Strange! Somebody else on here had the same problem but I can't find it.. Maybe someone can chime in on this, from stock I got 1200' before I lost FPV but radio link was fine..

    Have you tried flying in a totally different location, as in a couple of miles away, just to eliminate some local interference to your flying site?

    Have you examined the two receiving antenna wires that come down "opposite" legs of the P2V?

    yeah the 2 leads down the phantom legs are straight and intact

    ive not tried going a couple miles out cause i dont drive and most places have houses all round
    but i always have clear line of site to the drone, nothing is between the tx and the drone where i fly.
