Have you put it into low power mode and tested to see how far away you can walk and still have control of the model on the bench? There is a dedicated low power method on the TX just for this test to identify signal range issues

On another note, the new DX8 models have diversity antennas in them. The one you see on top and another sideways through the handle. There have been a few reports by others of removing the back and finding an antenna connection loose from the board. They are easy to see and diagnose on your own, but first do a proper range test per the manual to see if that is even the issue
