Default GWS R6NII receiver problems?

Hi, I'm having problems with GWS R6NII receivers. I'm using JR 6102 Tx. I have two 6102 Tx, one one ch 60 and the other on ch 52. With both channels the R6NII doesn't seem to have any range, maybe 25-50 feet. If I replace the R6NII with a Hitec dual conversion Rx everything works great. I know single conversion doesn't have the range of dual conversion but I would think it would be more then 50 ft.

Any input anybody can give will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Steve

Maybe your antenna is too short. Read this: http://www.rc-cam.com/ant_exp.htm I can't think of any other reason for it. Maybe someone else has an idea?

I have precisely the same problem with my receiver which is only 2 weeks old. Until now this receiver has worked flawlessly and given me more range than I needed - now it gets 10 meters away from me and does the jitterbug. I wish I hadn't got this receiver now, should've stuck with JR stuff. More expensive but at least it would still be working...

I would like to know what you changed, the model... the battery... the powerplant, servos, flying location, what???
