Hi, I got a standard vtol plane, yesterday I almost suffered a crash. It’s after the transition, the plane flies in manual mode in fixed wing state for a while, then I switch it to alt hold, and right after I switch it to alt_hold mode, it lost connection with QGC, at the same time, I found that I can’t control with my RC!
Then I just watched my plane flies with height decrease slowly as I can’t do anything, when it almost hit the ground, I found that I can control it with RC…then I saved my plane and got landed.
The whole crash flow is like: mc(normal) -> transition to FW(normal) -> manual mode(normal) -> alt_hold(lost signal!!!) -> free fly for a while???(don’t know what is that state) -> RC control regain -> land
After landing, I tired to read the px4log to find out the reason, but, the log stopped at the moment the plane lost connection with QGC.
here is the log:
Could anyone explain this? I don’t want to suffer this again, it’s hopeless watching your plane slowing hitting the ground.
p.s. I set RTL when both QGC and RC signal lost, but the plane didn’t act like RTL, so maybe the RC signal had not lost, but why I couldn’t control with RC?

after landing, I can’t disarm the plane with RC, so I had to hold it down by hand and cut off the battery.
