    I just had my first crash with my vision+ (pilot error) i crashed into a rock in a valley.

    Im thankful it was a minor crash only broke one of the props.

    I did a short test with a new set of props and it flew well and the gimbal is working well.

    I want to open it up and check for any issues, how can i tell the ESCs are fine? (i read they can have issues after a crash).

    Im also going to recalibrate IMU just in case.

    If it was a minor crash and everything is working fine, ESC must be fine. I had a major crash ( my error) that needed a shell replacement and one of the ESC loose a LED but after three months it is working as new. Just be very careful in the first after crash flights. ;)
