Default Habu 32 Augers in from 200 ft

I took off with a stock Habu 32 setup, turned left and then proceeded on downwind leg. As I was amidst my base leg at about 200 ft, the controls went out, followed a split second later by the motor. Nothing to do but watch it nose in.

I took it back to the bench and everything worked fine.

JR 11X DSM2 transmitter (new)

JR 921 DSM2 receiver

New pack

Fresh charge

Go figure?

Could it have pulled such a hard load for a second everything went down? I think there is a lag time for things to reconnect after an overload...I am not the expert on this, but I bet someone comes in with a answer that might be close..

I did have a friend with a 4 channel foamie, he had an issue with one servo pulling down his system, and it would all shut down for a few seconds..and then repower...

I think that the answer is on the battery pack. Did it survived the crash?
