    Landed (submerged) in about 5 feet of murky water. Was running as it went under. Took about 20 minutes until I was able to find something and then locate it to fish it out. Was still trying to run when I got it out (amazing battery didn't go). Disassembled, cleaned, dried. One motor only quivers, does not spin. I assume these are like a stepper motor and the associated board serves as a driver for it. Doubtful the motor itself is bad, hoping the driver board (if that's what it is) failed. Anyone have a spare one or a P1 available for parts?

    Sorry to hear about your swim. Did you place it in rice or how did you dry it?

    What led up to the water landing?

    Hope you get it fixed.

    The motor controler is called an ESC. You need to know which version you have so you can get the same replacment.
