    I currently have an immersion rc 600mw 5.8 ghz tx. I was wondering if there is a better tx I can invest in cause I want to upgrade. Any recommendations?

    Let me out it this way. Why do you want to change? Are you looking for greater flight distance?

    You'll need a directional antenna.

    With 600mW and proper antennae setup you'll get 2 miles for sure (with no obstacles of course). About antennae, there's a lot of what can go wrong... Did you observe polarity (LHCP / RHCP)? What exactly is your current setup? How far you get actually?
