The battery is burnt but it doesn't look like the battery was the problem I'm thinkin it was the board as the damage is more inside the drone than the battery if that makes sense the battery looks like it's just got surface damage because of this I will attach pic when I am home cheers

I think it’s unlikely that you’ll find the exact cause of the catastrophe. It’s sad to see the extent of the damage.

I've tryed the battery hold for 5 second an 3 lights are stayin on and 1 is flashing which indicates a broken cell am sure . So would that make the battery unsafe it's my 2nd battery just sad the price of them 😢

The 5 second hold on the battery switch tells you the percentage of battery health. 3 lights staying on means the battery has approximately 75% life.
