RC Jet Miraculous Save!!!!

F18 RC jet has a control surface failure and rolls inverted at 50 feet...then has a flameout. Great job recovering it by the pilot, Chris Hogg.

What was the cause of the control loss? Im thinking since the engine shut down too, that it lost link. Best be checking the batteries and Rx locations
