Help!
Lama 4 in 1 chip falls off after hard landing!--with pictures

so i had my first hard landing... not a crash because it landed on the skids and i did not brake anything on my lama. and all of the sudden everything was dead no lights no nothing! i inspected the battery and put it on the concrete outslide but while i was taking off the battery i heard something loose in the cockpit when i look it was the power chip that ussually blows in the 4 in 1. i will post pictures in a few minutes. it looks like it wasent even soldered on to the board you will see in the pictures what i am talking about.

as you can see in the pictures the solder is not even damaged. i dont get why it fell off there is also no solder residue on the chip. wating for the soldering iron to heat up as i type!

ohh yeah made sure that little circle was down at the bottom right. well have full controlls everything works except for the lower rotors (switched the motor leads on the board and both motors work fine) so it must be that i missed a solder point anyone know which lead controlls the bottom rotor?
