When an drone crashes and the propellors hit the ground do the ESCs get damaged. My drone crashed one while I was flying and motor 1 hit the ground along with the propellor. The motor was damaged so I replaced the motor checked and the esc1 seemed to be working fine(Motor 1 was rotating). The next time I flew it the drone climbed and after a while the esc1 failed and crashed (The drone flipped to that side and one FET was also burnt). Was the esc1 already damaged after my first crash?. While taking off it worked fine but did it burn when the load was too high.
Should we replace the esc when the props hit the ground and how do we check if the esc is working
Thank you in advance
