After one crash I have problems with my phantom 3 standard. It do not hold altitude and whole body of phantom is jerking. Compass was calibrated and IMU too. All flight was in p-gps mode. Does anyone have solution for this problem?

If you take the top off, you will see if the GPS is plunged in. It is a small plug and it says GPS on the main board. The plug is the only one that connects to the top. It might have come off. Before you do that, you might reboot everything.

Yes, check your props. Even a small nick or chip on the prop can cause instability. Also check for cracks on the body shell underneath the motors and repair if needed. These things would cause the shaking more than bad calibration or even loss of GPS. A physical or mechanical problem. Good luck.

Just a thought worth looking into; in the crash, did the drone land hard, upside down? If so,the 6-axis gyro could have slightly punched through the main circuit board. The P3's have the gyro in the middle of the board and it is almost twice as thick as the P2 models. It is almost touching the upper shell. I have had to replace main circuit boards on 3 different crash victims because they landed upside down, punching the gyro completely through the board. When you get the body halves apart, make sure you check all the many solder connections on the perimeter of the gyro, (1" square black box).

Good luck.
