I wanna see pics!!

Kidding - Seriously though, we need more info:

You say " control at all..." which would lead me to believe that you had no battery connection at all (one cell was fine afterward, so rcvr would have had 11.1v for BEC). What ESC were you using? Did it fail? Did you test all equipment afterwards? We first have to rule out that the fire was caused by the impact (Li-Poly's are very sensitive to "crushing").

How many charges did the E-Tec's have? These cells are VERY slow to drift in voltage if handled properly, so if used within specs, they would take many charges to become imbalanced.

I'm also not familiar with the current draw of the EDF55 300H motors.

More info please, I'd love to get to the bottom of this!!
