I guess I was thinking if you were using a 2.4 Ghz receiver with a weak battery, that could explain the loss of control. 2.4 Ghz like Spektrum and Fasst require a minimum voltage to operate and will reboot if they fall below that voltage. But that would only be a problem if your receiver was not up to the correct revision on Spektrum. Example the AR6200 with v1.6 firmware has a quick connect feature to allow the receiver to recover immediately instead of scanning for channels which can take several seconds.

But since you were using 72 mhz receivers, that kinda eliminates that theory since they recover immediately on power hits. But it's possible that if the throttle stayed high and kept the voltage too low that the receiver would not recover.

Another possibility is the BEC on your ESC may have failed or overheated causing it to shutdown which would cut power to your receiver and servos...

Just a theory...
