Assuming you have got good wiring and correct voltages, then It can really only be one of three things (in order of likelihood)...

1. Wrong channel
2. Blown transmitter
3. Faulty antenna

I guess there is a slight possibility that the receiver could be faulty, but not very likely in my experience.

Without special equipment, the only way to identify 2,3 or 4 is by a process of elimination using other parts. If meetings up with someone isn't practical then I don't think you can do much more without buying another transmitter (can be a cheap one so long as it supports compatible frequencies) or send your kit to someone willing to test it for you.

If you are only getting 1 meter the transmission must be in the micro watts region. Even 1mW will get further than 1m.

I'm in Peckham working at the moment, and have my 5.8 sharks with me, I can see if I can get a signal from your transmitter with them if you like, I just lost the antenna on my little quad, and only getting a meter now. Lol
need to fined a little whip antenna for it.
