    I can say with confidence that whatever happened to the phantoms, it had nothing to do with solar flares or geomagnetic storms.
    If you or your friends are interested to know what really happened ...
    Go to http://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/Upload/
    Follow the instructions to upload your flight record.

    Come back and post a link to the report it provides and some of the experienced people here will probably be able to analyse it and give you an understanding of the cause of the incident and perhaps work out where the lost Phantom might have gone.

    Losing the Go app doesn't affect control of the Phantom - only the operator's camera view and data.
    You can still fly and initiate RTH without the app.
    The flight data should have been recorded by the app and it would reveal the cause of the incidents.
