Short range with flysky turnigy ia6c

#1

recently built my first quad and noticed that my RSSI is really low. if the quad and transmitter are right next to each other, then it’s around 40~ish percent and never really goes higher than that. I tried an identical receiver and even an identical transmitter (turnigy evolution) and I’m getting the same behavior. I feel like I’m doing something wrong because I don’t really get a lot of range. I’m getting maybe 100-150 meters and it just feels wrong.

any help would be appreciated, thank you

Hmm not sure what my values are at during flight, b4 I go under the goggles I know it always says 0. But 300 450- Feet that’s about the max I’ve ever gotten out of the i6 stock in a clear flat field.
(I have a second i6 for my son, but at 3 he just wants to jam full throttle. He will be flying by Christmas this year.)
I havent had a chance to test range on i6 since adding a 5db antenna. I have noted that some closer dead spots get reception now, thats a plus. For instance if I stand in front of my carport with the truck on my left 20ft away between 8 and 10 ft high I used to hit a dead spot the kwads would actually failsafe. Wether it be tiny whoops or mobula7 or the leader 120 they all failsafe there.
( Weather in North Texas has been crappy as of late. I actually kind of enjoy the wind gusts, they keep me on my toes.)
My bad I missed the part about ia6c I’m using ia6, ia6b and the tiny fs reciever
