So here is what happens:

I turn it on and it will bind. THe lights all work. The rudder and elevator are very jerky and have about a second delay. The motor starts to spin up and then shuts off.

Is there any saving this thing or is it headed to the trash.

Guessing it is the ESC / board. Can I fix this?

The Motor shutting off is probably the battery. Water is how you kill them. Buy a new one.

Use a #000 phillips screw driver to remove the servo racks. Use alcohol and a Q-tip to wipe the carbon off the resistive strips and servo brushes, then screw the racks back on.

You may have hurt the ESC if you tried to run the brick while it was still wet, but I'd still go with the battery.
