So, I'm hovering my Blade CP at about chest height nice and smooth, and it "shuts off" and falls straight to the floor. Didn't tip over or anything, just landed square on it's landing gear.

rotors NOT moving at this point. At somepoint during the event I lowered the throttle. I tried giving it left stick, but no blade movement (main or tail)

Disconnect battery and reconnect. I get 3 blinking red lights and NO green lights at all, and it's obviously not arming and won't spin the motors.

Did the 4-in-1 just let go? Did it let go in flight or when it hit the ground?

TIA

All stock except I put heat sinks on the motors.

I'm using stock 9.6v batteries.
Transmitter batteries show in the green (2 LEDs down).
Antenna is in the stock location.

I'd like to thank Horizon Hobby on great customer service. I called them Monday with my problem and a new 4-in-1 showed up at my door today (Wednesday). Quick shipping, and free of charge.
