AAIB Report, Tekever AR5 Evolution Mk 2, double engine shut down, Kent

While orbiting south of the runway in preparation for landing at Lydd airport, both engines of the Tekever AR5 Evolution Mk 2 unmanned aircraft (G-TEKV) shut down unexpectedly. The External Pilot on the ground, who was visual with the aircraft, took control and landed it without further incident.

The dual engine shutdown was likely to have been caused by an on-aircraft data error.

Various safety actions, including improvements to the aircraft’s hardware and software, and the Ground Control Station software, have been taken to reduce the risk of a reoccurrence.
