Heres my validation, Watch someone fly. most folks face the machine, pretty common. Some folks use body english and twist and turn too. With Pinecone's description of a dipole antenna in mind, you are most likely one of the folks who FACES the model you are flying, directly in the weakest plane of signal. Crank the antenna at an angle, and you always have the antenna pointed elsewhere besides the model.
Back in the day of AM radios, you'd get by with pointing the antenna at a model for a couple hundred feet, and lose it. Rotate the tip 90* and regain control. Lessons learned then still apply in some respect to the newer technology.
