Default KoPropo 2.4Module failed

Yesterday, when I tried to run for the first time this day my car transmitter/receiver couldn't bind. I thought it might be due to low battery on transmitter (10.6) so I put some charge.
I tried again and it worked. I prepared the car and then when I turned on both again no bind and I could smell that smell when an esc fried. It was the module that the smell came from

I opened it and saw at the right bottom a melted circuit.

Does anyone know why that happened?! I have 40MHz and spectrum module handy but I'm afraid to put any of it in case they fry too!!

Is it my consideration valid?

What do you think?!
