No puff of smoke... or @least a burnt smell or off-colored component?
I hope you can trouble-shoot it... and it's just a loose or shorted connection.

luuck!
yeah, I found it. An extremely small resistor is disintegrated.
Only thing that remains is a faint smouldered area and burnt carbon. I won't know exactly what resistor type it was until the replacement board I ordered (almost 4 weeks ago!) comes in so that I can compare. I did find the reason why this occurred though.

As careful as I thought I was, a small strand of wire bridged one of the neg/pos motor outputs when I removed the jst connectors and direct solder the motors the the board. Although 2 flights later this occurred, I firmly believe this was the cause.

Now I'm quadless....oh the humanity.
