I have had a few mysterious occurrences with my Trex 450 using Align 3G with a 2801 pro receiver. One one occasion I lost rudder control suddenly and couldn't control the heli. I suspect there was a loose connection between the 3G unit and the tail servo.

On two occasions, the heli just lost power and fell out of the sky so to speak. One of them was very close and so it could not have been a range issue. I am inclined to think that a brownout had occurred where the BEC had cut off power to the receiver.because of over current usage. My LHS recommended that I install an independent BEC. However, I did not encounter any problems with my 250 which was fitted with Align 3G and a 2801 pro receiver as well.
