RAID 10 more susceptible to power outages then RAID 5 or RAID 0?

I recently bought a Synology NAS 1511+ for home lab which I configured with RAID 10.
Once I rebooted it and storage was degraded, if I put the disk which was degraded in another (free) slot, I could repair it. Second time I had a power outage (now I have an UPS) again a degraded storage, again if I move the disk to another slot, repair works.

What I would like to know:
-why it doesn't see my disk, but it does in another slot, then repair works
-I have also a Synology DS 210J with RAID 0, never any problem with storage when power goes away
=> does it make more sence to configure my RAID in RAID 5 or I could set it to RAID 0 for two disks and RAID 5 for 3 left over.
Hate it to see my storage be degraded simply by a reboot (oweroutage I could understand somehow).
