Smoked something on my Mini CP

I made an expensive mistake and soldered up my micro Deans connectors with reverse polarity, and when I plugged it into the Mini CP, something smoked. Has anyone ever done this and what was the replacement parts you needed?
Thanks.
Note to self: don't be a fool.

Post some pics. Probably some diodes and for sure the tantalum capacitor.

The yellow rectangle under the motor's temp plug. It's probably black now.

Ok, so I did some de-bugging.
All three servos have a burnt up chip inside them, so they are shot.
The receiver still binds a can control a New servo, but there is some chip on the receiver board that controls the main motor that is fried and the main motor doesn't turn. So yeah... I will prolly just buy a new ( or used) mini cp.
Big dumb mistake on my part
