Loss of efficiency of the tail rotor

Hello everybody,

 

Yesterday, I flew mission #4 of the Argo Campaign. I took off from the ship (home base) and turned on the autopilot. When I reached the shore I deactivated the autopilot and put the sim on active pause so that I could turn on the landing and search lights and set their orientation for the purpose of the mission.

 

When I left the active pause, I suddenly lost nearly all efficiency on the tail rotor and the heli started rotating desperately to the right although I applied full left rudder. Speed dropped but fortunately I achieved to land. I don't think it was a VRS because when I tried to take off again, there was still no efficiency on the tail rotor. So I had to abort the mission.

 

What could have happened?

Actually I think I hit something with the tail during a night low vis mission in Argo Campaign.
