Ok, this isn't really a problem that I'm looking for a solution to. It's really more of me just trying to optimize my system. The picture below shows my FPV TX antenna placement. My antenna is basically straight out the back, pointed downward. I did a range test the other day and got good FPV image to about 1500 meters before I chickened out and turned it around to come back. (I'll go for more distance after I've scouted the flight path out a little better beyond 1500 meters). Anyway, naturally when I turned it around, the quad, gimble, and Hero 3 were in between the TX antenna and the RX antenna. So on the way back my image was fading into and out of snow some while at the great distance. (1250-1500meters). My question is, if I had a longer antenna wire it would place the antenna even further behind the quad. Depending on the height and distance I'm wondering if that would improve my reception slightly when I had the Phantom and it's gear in between the TX antenna and my RX antenna?. If I had a longer antenna, I could also get the coil of the TX antenna a little lower toward the ground, which I think would make even more sense. Any thoughts or should I just leave well enough alone?
