Last week I crashed my drone pretty hard, now, when flying the drone is very jittery, it has no visible ware. When flying the drone will not keep still and I struggle to keep it at a stable altitude at a low height, it will constant fly down wards, the drone sounds like it is putting on extra thrust for ~0.5s every couple of seconds, meaning the drone cannot keep a steady altitude and will drift a large amount.

I have calibrated the compass and the IMU, the IMU calibration made it slightly better but it's still no where near perfect.

Thanks

I think its one of the motors not turning fast enough but just enough to give it lift. Personally take the props off and then just arm it up so it so It spins and see if one of the motors is slower then the others

Well first put on new props. The propellers could be unbalanced so you will not stay still. Also before your next flight, turn on the phantom, no props and fly it if you see a slower motor than the others, REPLACE IT!
