radio goes to fail safe after 20m

hey guys

my heli goes to fail safe for 1-3second randomly when the helicopter is at least 20 minutes away. it would cut out at least 2-3 times a pack

i have a dx6i and 6100 rx and a trex 450sev2 with gy401gyro. . i have tried different packs, and checked all the wires.

is this a problem with the hardware or could it be a setting?

any help is appreciated

try relocating your rx a little so the antennas are in a different orientation, try to seperate the large motor and battery wires from all the servo wires on the model,rebind the model to the tx and make sure the tx is at least 1ft from the heli when you power up the heli
