Default Spektrum DX8 Reverse Polarity

I left the radio on all night and killed he lipo. I installed another lipo and the polarity in he connector was wrong. Burnt smell came out so I figure a fuse blew out. There are no fuses in these radios but I did find a blown cap. Cant tell what size/type it is since it burnt pretty good. It is C1 on the board and there is what appears to be one like it on C2. I would hate to have to replace the entire board if the cap fixes it.

Any ideas?

I would send it back to Horizon. No telling what else possibly happened that you canít see. Not worth losing a plane at some point

Let us know what happens
