    For a while I have been having inconsistent signal issues without finding a cause. What I mean is the following symptoms.
    1. RC goes back and forth between ATTi mode and GPS mode several times before takeoff without any buttons being touched.
    2. Sudden lose of video and then regain.
    3. Checked the flight logs and it shows varying signal levels during flight. (I fly the same area over and over and some days it will be fine and other days it's anyone's guess.)

    Well today I discovered the left antennae was sticking out about 3/8s of an inch farther than the right antennae. So I pushed it back in and it seems to work fine. Anyone else ever have this problem?

    Mind you I have not dropped the RC nor do I use windsurfers.
