So, even with GPS signal lost, RVOSD autopilot did actually kept the airplane on a controlled circle, and you still wasn't able to get control back. I think there was also serious problems with your RC link then.
Also I would love to know what type of autopilot programming could had saved your plane with this three conditions together:
1-GPS lock lost.
2-RC link on the edge of distance budget, not able to get it back even with airplane circling above RC link lost position.
3-Winds taking the airplane away from home.
