Question
Power failure or rx failure

Yesterday while doing a hover at around 8 feet with my homemade quad , i lost power and just fell out of the air wreaking one landing leg and breaking an arm. It acted like it just lost power. I have a voltage protector, my failsafe is set up to lower rpm for a hard landing. rx failsafe is set to auto land. Im really thinking that it would be the rx . Can the rx just go bad? Is there any real way to test ? Is this just one of those " Just replace the part and hope for the best" type situation.

Im really leaning toward rx going bad , but is there a way to test for maybe a power failure. because after the crash everything still seemed to have power and i was able to disarm and rearm and spin up ( just to make sure my motors still worked) Im new to the troubleshooting problems like this and just dont know what part i should be focusing my attention to

Im using
multiwii pro /gps
frysky djt module with v8rII rx
9xr turnigy tx
afro 30amp esc
turnighy d2830-11 1000kv motors
multiwii bluetooth adapter
voltage protecter

thanks for any help
on a side note , if i replace the rx im going with a telemetry model and need to get telemetry to the 9xr with the above module , any help with that would be nice to help narrow down my parts search
