My very weird crash

Hi, so today i was flying my new electric sailplane for the first time, the wingspan is 2.1 meters. My flight was going really well at first, i was actually quite surprised how well it flew. Then it happened, i was flying above a field, about 100m high, when after a flip the cabin fell off the plane, along with the battery, i could still control the plane, because the battery was hanging on the cables. I then tried to land the plane immediately, but after about 5 seconds the tail ripped off the body of the plane WTH? The plane then fell to the ground in about 5 pieces, and broke its wing on the impact with the ground. so now the right wing is torn to three pieces and the elevator broken in half, i will fix the elevator, but the wing completely totaled, so i will probably have to buy a new one .
Yes, and one more thing, my reciever stopped beeping, it works well, but it always used to beep when i connected the battery and now it dosent... Its a spektrum AR6210. Any ideas what might be wrong?

The beep you hear doesn't come from the receiver. The ESC generates the beep signal and uses the motor winding as a crude loudspeaker. The sound actually comes from the motor.

If there are no beeps, chances are the ESC or motor are at fault, or you unplugged the motor or ESC.
