RE: SD-10G and 92224 Rx
I was in low power mode doing this check and no, I have not moved around the model much (good point on possible shadow area). Also, I am not putting my body between the plane and the Tx. What I did do, against better judgement perhaps, is switch back to normal power mode and walked until the plane was nearly out of my typical flight/vision range. I had no problem in this mode and went ahead and flew the plane. Worked perfectly! My antennae orientation is such that one is point straight up and visible through the canopy and one is horizontal taped to the fuse side.
I was informed, by an experienced gentlemen here on this site, that low-power range check for these Rx's is very short. So, perhaps this is normal and nothing to be concerned with.
