    Being very wary at his point.
    Got weak signal warning at about 1.2ks

    This one is my backyard
    Was too careful of the power lines and landed in long grass

    Again weak signal warning .Maybe power lines or antenna position?

    Both times hit RTH

    Very nice videos.
    You should get better range than that - I can reach 2.6km standard at a height of about 120m. Either you were too low or the structure you were standing by was blocking signals? Aerials need to be parallel and pointing vertically.
    Try hand catch/land it is much safer.
    Windsurfers or similar will improve your range.

    Thanks
    I'm thinking 2 storey house and power line interference plus I only just read that the flat part of the antenna should face the plane.
    I had em sideways
