    I am running the DJI AVL58 and up until recently it has been great for me. Ive gone up to about 1200m before starting to lose the signal. Recently I havent had many opportunities to fly and my P2 was in its case undisturbed for maybe a month and a half. When I went to fly, the range on the FPV was terrible. Id be surprised if I was getting even 100m.
    Since then, I went another month or so without flying. 2 days ago i put it in the air in a place where I had flew out over 1km before. Same issue. Really terrible range. I also noticed that as I gave the RC input, the monitor would distort a little, as if the RC signal was messing with the video signal.

    Any suggestions for what to fix/replace? I was thinking antennas but it just doesnt make sense to me that everything was working just fine last time I flew, and next time I pull it out it was such a drastic loss.

    Thanks ahead for any suggestions.
