    Flew with FPV for the first time today and loved it. Got some great footage and it felt good getting the drone so far away without much worry. I am hearing that people are getting up to a km out of the setup I have but I can only get around 300m. I was flying in a canyon with clear line of site other than a thin tree here or there.

    Blue Beam antennas - Black Pearl 7 channel - Immesion Trans 600w

    Any ideas?

    Are you using any of the stick antennas at all ? I have the same exact setup as you with one exception. On my black pearl 7 channel I have one blue beam ultra and one ibcrazy 5 turn helical antenna. The BP is running diversity mode of course. My other blue beam ultra is plugged into the immersion rc 600mw on my phantom. I dont use the stick antennas at all.
    I've gone 1010 meters with good fpv though the video started to get a little grainy. That was out over a half mile. I probably could have gone out further.
    You can get an ibcrazy 5 turn helical for about $35 if you did decide to add one. I'm very happy with my setup

    Make sure your antennas are polarized the same direction and that your antenna's have the correct connectors.
