If you Factory reset the controller and re-configure it with the same IP the AP should find it's way back.  The AP will always try to connect to the last know ZD ip first.

I forget the exact time, but it's only a few minutes at the most, of the ZD being back on it's original IP.  The AP should be sending and receiving hartbeat and if it's missed the AP will eventually panic and reboot of the zd does not respond, and that will definitely force a reconnect.
