RC Signal Low in Mountains

So when flying my Mavic Pro Platinum in mountainous areas there seems to be low RC signal and the transmission of the camera to DJI GO 4 is delayed by about 1.5 - 2 seconds. There is nothing between the antennas and the drone and it is not extremely far away from the controller (not further than 3000 feet). It is much better when flying in flat areas.

Does it have to do with the signals bouncing off the mountainsides or something?

I just thought I would post and see if anyone has any thoughts or feedback on this.

Thanks in advance.

I didn't even fly it behind anything and got it.

I'm glad that it will return to home by itself though if you loose signal.

I had great results in the mountains of Montana using the Titan Atlas antenna.
Can you buy different antennas for the Mavic remote? Would you recommend other ones more than the included ones?

Yes, Titan Drones makes all kinds of different antennas for different flying conditions. The Titan Atlas is an omnidirectional antenna. I also have the semi directional Titan Cyclone that is great for long range in one direction. Titan Drone makes the most compact and professional antennas IMO.

So I need to send it in to Titan to get it put on. I can't just put in on myself?

You can do it yourself, or send it to Titan Drones and they’ll do it for $99.
