bool rc_lost				# RC receiver connection status: True,if no frame has arrived in the expected time, false otherwise. True usually means that the receiver has been disconnected, but can also indicate a radio link loss on "stupid" systems. Will remain false, if a RX with failsafe option continues to transmit frames after a link loss.
