    Hello,I had a bad landing today because it was windy,the phantom fliped over and started digging the sand for 5 seconds...I cleaned it up from lots of sand in the motors and inside.I tested it and everything seems ok.Some people say that the escs are very easy to get damaged when the motors are blocked.Any suggestions?What I have to check?Thanks.

    Take the props off and try to start it up. If starts and there isn't any smoke coming from the ECS or noise from the motors put the props on and see if it hover at 8 to 10 feet.
