    I had a crash recently and now when I power up the system I get the ESC Error, please restart and yada yada

    My understanding is that there could be a loose connection other wise the motherboard is toast, is this correct?

    One of the props was broken the others were not. I did not take note which was which. Any way to narrow down which ESC is throwing the error?

    Thanks

    Yeah that's what I understand too.

    I've read elsewhere the wires can lose connection and if you can find it and reattach it you might be able to salvage it

    had this on my first p3p ( 2 weeks old) after 8 crashes ( 4 trees and 4 walls).. the esc msg showed up a couple of times on cold starts only. pulling the battery out and in solved the problem and never reappeared..
