If you say you have checked it all & everything is correct(that was fast  Shocked ), then most probably your boards are toast  Tongue
I can only tell you what can be the cause, troubleshooting it properly is your chore.

Esc's are very dirty power source for APM. You should either use power module or a separate bec/ubec for powering APM. Sometimes voltage may drop to less than 4.5v on esc's under high load which may lead to a brownout and crash.
Check that regulator too as Hareesh said, completely forgot that!

I don't think that's the right config.
