I would first try to update the firmware on the controller and see if that improves the Bluetooth reliability. It looks like there is a new update since I last tried Bluetooth. Go to https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/...ess-controller and follow the "Update on PC" instructions.
I downloaded the Xbox accessories app and updated the firmware. I'll try it out later on today to see if it works.

I just tried it and it stopped working about 10 minutes in. The light in the middle didn't start blinking and lose connection the light in the middle stayed on, but it switched to the keyboard I pulled the battery and plugged in.
