Drone went in the sea. Ordered 'part 33' and got a 044LC- it has the metal capactitor. Which motors are compatible? The little card with the board only contemplates a rev A or rev B. No mention of rev C

Yeah when soldering a circuit board you should solder hot and fast...And hey not saying this is or was your problem because it wasn't but if you look at the attached pic i want to mention you should watch the wire I'm pointing at...Its the communication cable to the battery...I took mine apart and noticed this wire pinched between the board and the shell with the insulation coming off at that spot....apparently whenever i was taking the battery out i was squeezing the phantom there and pinching that wire...I replaced and rerouted it before it became a real issue...Maybe its nothing just thought I'd mentioning it...So as an update to this, i soldered my old motors in (attached pic) but still got ESC status error!
I bought four new motors and still ESC error.
I'm worried that i may have damaged some of the esc transistors when soldering, although never touched them i did hear a 'pop' and visibly saw the PCB surface 'boil'. I had my soldering arm set to low.
The other option is that i need to use the newer motors. Any thoughts? I could try to RMA the board.... but not feeling hopeful
