Check that you have the TX set on FCC and not CE...

Same results in different locations?  
What type of area are you flying in (populated, rural,  trees, open area,...?)
Where is your phantom in relation to you/the Controller?
What antenna position are you using?

Yes, i was flying in open area like no trees an buildings around and in the  cyty, same result, about 100 m brakes conection with controler.
I always turn contrloter to phantom and i try with straith antena an bended antena for 90 degree to the rigt!
about FCC and FC, i see on internet that FC is for europe caus i am from europe i set it on FC, so should i change it to FFC?

For best results use your antenna with about 90 degrees to the ground ( pointing up) not turned to the side/parallel to the ground. In any case never have the tip of the antenna pointing towards the phantom since the tip has the lowest RF emission.
Yes CE is Europe and FCC is NA, with legalities aside FCC has a higher emission power thus you'd get more distance using it.

Are you near an airport? Is it 100 meters altitude you're talking about?  If it's 100 meter every time and you're within an airport zone, then this could well be your problem.

Good to know, I've kept my antenna parallel to the ground thinking that was best.  I'll try your idea.
