    That's why I always check which way my jst is facing before I plug it in, I heard someone say it before and I fortunately have not had it happen to me yet. Also what fried on the gremlin?
    There isn't anything a little packing tape and hot glue can't fix.

    With my limited electronics skills, it's hard for me to say. If I plug in a battery I hear a brief ESC tone, but no controller lights and no motors.

    If I plug into Betaflight, I get lights, gyro and accelerometer but no motors.

    More then likely the voltage regulator got toasted as it seems to power up on usb power. It probably could be replaced or worked around but it sounds like you have limited electronic experience and since we are working with lipos its probably best to just replace the FC altogether.

    I surmised that the problem lay in the FC. But there's no replacement parts readily available. What is the smallest quad with plug-inable components?
