    I flew 3000ft out at 65ft and was getting instability quite a lot. This isnt very far and what would happen if i decide to fly 1 mile out?

    Depends on your environment, antenna etc. Behind any trees?

    Check your antenna orientation - have the flat sides parallel to the craft - basically straight up to the sky should work best if the phantom is some distance off.

    Could try lowering the bit rate of your video feed to to the lowest setting, 4mbps.
