First time using it since it's return and I cannot get an adequate range check on the ground. Fortunately, I have a 12x as well to compare to and when bound to the same airframe, i can get almost 3x as much range on the 12x vs the 10x so, I'm confident it's a transmitter issue and not receiver related.

So, question is: is there something that the tech could have screwed up to cause the loss of range when he "repaired" the radio?

It'll have to go all the way back to Horizon but, I thought I put it out here to see if anyone had knowlege of this stuff.
Try JR's Website. They have range test instructions for most of there radio equipment, now out there.
Is Horizon an authorized JR service rep ? Do they have the propper equipment to test a 10x radio ? Can it be sent to JR ? Or is this too costly ?
