You are assuming that control is regained. If there is a major failure and failsafe kicks in, and there is hover throttle set in failsafe, the quad will continue slowly climb or descend and drift, and drift, and come down as the battery discharges, but with enough throttle for those razor sharp spinning blades to slice and dice their way through whatever is in their path.
I prefer the drop like a stone thanks.
Perhaps a full house naza is the exception where it will either failsafe to rth or hover on the spot until battery flattens.
