    My phantom is drifting to the left ever since a crash. I had it fixed from insurance but it hasn't been the same since. When I'm flying it it slowly turns to the left.

    Do and RC Calibration to see if that will stop it.

    Check the motor mounts and see if there are stress fractures? You may have a wonky motor or a wonky arm.
    Make sure you use new props after a crash and do an IMU calibration when cold and on a levelled surface.
    There has been a case where the entire motor separated from the arm during flight.
