Hey everyone! Been lurking for some time, never felt like I had enough expertise to contribute but now I have an issue and need some help.

My 1.1.1. took a bath in a lake, luckily where it went down was only about 10 feet deep. I dove off the houseboat and swam to the drone where the lights were still on and it was beeping. I recovered the drone, and removed the battery immediately. I let it sit in the shade in the heat for the remainder of our trip (about 4 days). After we got home I used a different battery, plugged it in and it seemed to be working. Except for when engaging the motors, only 2 of the motors work.

Any idea what I may have fried? I am at a loss as I am not sure what else to try...

Assuming the motors turn freely, I would guess at the speed controllers.
Do all the ESC Leds light up?
You may have to try swapping out known good motors.
