Have you got all 4 antennas on the outside.?
Yip this ps3 was terrible on range the works when new in 2016,I should have stuck them outside ages ago,I sure it helps,can fly 1km up the beach easy and some but keep it safe now,,both sides I have out the leg front and back,,behind plastic was bad (like a windsurfer working backwards),some good but mine was bad,,bott pic is me remote at moment,,,got p4 Itelite panel with 5.8 argtec for transmission ,,,,no real cash to splash so using what I had around,,and yes took plastic covers off so less restrictions,,,,looks pretty out there but works very good

It’s called Diversity. In this case spatial diversity. They also face opposing directions giving them pattern diversity as well. It improves signal reliability. It can be Google-d for more info.
