Default MQ-9 Reaper crashes into ground after it fires.

Sometimes the MQ-9 Reaper crashes into the ground after it has fired a weapon and has no other waypoints or tasks after that.

I have included an example mission.

And the bug is still present. This is depressing.

may I add a (possible) one regarding the MQ-9 Reaper here:

dont know if intended or not:
but I see Reapers circling over targets with heavy air defences on MP servers and they are not getting shot a single time..
Bug or are they set as "invincible" by the Mission Designers?

Likely set to invisible and invincible.

You guys realize it won't crash if it spawns on an airfield or has a landing waypoint right? Also reported the bug. Super odd that it only occurs with the Reaper, at least as far as I can tell.
The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

Well, dont know if it is the same bug, but the other day I created a quick mission with an E3 with just its start point, orbit task on that start point and a landing point and it just dove straight to the ground from 30kft on mission start. Later I created an additional waypoint in between those two and it worked.

Unfortunately I didn't save the flawed mission or track file.
