    Why am I having a weak image signal at 1000 ft straight up
    Nothing in the way

    Even worse going outward
    My old p3a went way farther with no issues
    I'm at the Bristol NASCAR race (not during)
    Wonder if radio waves are interfering

    You're probably not holding the controller/antenna correctly.

    What is the proper way? I usually hold it level as if it were sitting on a table , and open the antennas into a slight V shape

    The antennas should be positioned like this:
