    I sent my RC in for repair, the RTH button had fallen into the controller as have others. No problems with the RMA, received new RC in 14 days. I sent in the 300A and received a 300C in return. Nothing else has changed. Same firmware, same settings absolutely nothing else has changed. I fly from my front porch all the time. I am in the country. I am sitting above everything else around. Used to go to at least 9000' before any type of signal loss. It was a given, never varied more than 1000'. Now when I get to about 1000 I start to get blackouts on the screen. Got to about 5000' and started to lose RC signal. I am thinking the 300C could be the problem? Your Thoughts?

    I don't see any problems with my 300C either; went 18000 ft with full signals on both video and RC but had to turn back due to battery warning. You might want to try again in another area.

    Yes it's that, 300C has less output power than 300A and 300B...

    Sorry to read it much later, but what is said in these links is that first link is stating 0.038 W and second 0.303 W. So if the second is really related to 300C, then it is a lot more powerful, which would be strange.
