Was flying just a little bit ago and my iPad went blank and it was saying aircraft disconnected. It stayed like this for about 20-30 seconds which felt like 2 hours, in triggered RTH and it said something about 2 flight modes , can't really remember the exact words. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening again.

It's difficult to decipher your post.  You say the iPad went blank but it was saying AC disconnected.  How can this be?  

Keep it close and aim your antennas correctly and you shouldn't lose your signal.

Sounds like all your telemetry just stopped.      How far were you out?

The aircraft disconnected means that the AC and RC lost connection. Please make sure there is no interference such as buildings and trees to block the signal.

I hate to contradict, but there's never been even scant evidence that a geomagnetic storm has any influence on a drone flight.  It's a great theory and it makes wonderful sense, but history shows it never happens.
