Running a Dragonlink UHF radio system on my QAV540 quad, having some interesting range issues that I never thought I would using such a powerful system! My radio is a Taranis X9D.
Everything is setup, bound and calibrated properly according to the website. Prior to doing a longer range FPV flight I wanted to make sure I was going to failsafe at some pitifully short range and crash into the ocean :).
So I put the copter in a bush and start walking. Got 450m or so away, constant failsafes :(. Using the stock antennas, here's what my setup looks like:
I've also attempted the micro power range test like the website dictates to know if your system is working properly, which I completed and only got 16ft away before failsafes. You're supposed to get to 30ft. Anyone else having these issues? Any pointers?
