Default Crash

I have a Beam E4 FBL with a mini-bar. I crashed on sunday morning doing a gentle banked turn. I looked at the log on the v-bar and it said RC input of (Ail, elev, pitch, tail) channel missing for about 3 seconds. The ESC log also showed no input, so I think the motor stoped. Control came back just before the crash, I think, and I hit trottle hold which showed in the ESC log. Someone suggested on the V-bar threads that it might have been a static hit.

Do you all ground the tail on the Beam E4? If so what is the best way?

I also saw in my DX8 manual that the sat RX's need to be more than 2 inches apart and mine are about 1 in apart.

Thanks in advance for the help.

its very unlikely to be static with an aluminium boom.
