Id bet you have a gimbal motor overload message in the app for sure.
Look at .38 seconds in the video. Looks like the gimbal was stressed in the crash.
Fire up R/C and drone then open app, look for any error messages.

Edit: Your post came through as I was responding.

Pull cover off of the roll motor and make sure the flat part of the shaft is in align with the horizon

the gimbal base.

More or less this is what you want

Look when I touched one of the arms in the video 1:15-1:18 do you think it could be the motor could be bad bc it doesent return or move when its dancing

I cant say yes or no that the motor is bad. Im kinda in the same boat as you! But after looking around
a lot of user's here have replaced their ribbon cable in very similar circumstances as yours
and had very good luck.

Maybe it is something you can try? I saw that you stated yours was intact. I don't know maybe its
a thought. Hopefully you find your fix, and if you do please let me know. If I get a answer before
you I will surely let you know.

The first thing I notice is that the camera is pointing forward before it’s turned on. It should be pointing down prior to startup. Is it possible the camera was installed incorrectly?
