Opposite ESCs dead after yaw cartwheel crash

I've just had my second instance of oppsite ESCs dying after a crash. Both times the crash produced a very fast yaw spin (cartwheel). After the crash one ESC would not work when arming. Disarm and arm again, now the opposite ESC also does not work. Both ESCs are hot after but show no signs of blown components.
On Blheli suite neither ESC will connect.
Replace the ESCs and everything up and running again.

After the first time I put an limit of 60amps on the ESCs and went to dshot 1200 from dshot 600. But obviously that wasn't a decent solution.

ESCs are Aikon Ak32 35Amp 2s-6s
Running 6S through the Brainfpv Radix Powerboard.

Anyone had experience of this?
Or have any possible solutions to prevent it happening again?
