UAS encountered a ESC error/failure which induced an unrecoverable spin.

200 feet and it began to spin to the right. I was able to, somewhat, correct the spin then I flew it into the ground to keep it from going into a nearby parking lot.

Repair cost was quoted at $3900, not including X4S and set of TB55’s, which were both destroyed.

Reported Cause

ESC failure.
