    Ok - after getting the FPV, iOSD mini, and H3-3D gimbal set up on my Phantom 2, I noticed that at short range (38 meters), i'm getting terrible interference. I tried changing channels etc, with no luck. Here's a video:


    By chance, I grabbed the blue beam on the receiver with my fingers, and Voilà! CLEAR AS DAY. When I let go, the interference returns.

    Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

    Need more info...What transmitter, receiver, goggles/monitor and antennas are you using at both ends? Also check if SMA (or the like) connectors are matched.
