    I had a crash that wasn't that bad (only dropped from nine Ft) but now I have two problems.

    1: flights are now real shaky even with new props
    2: the gimbal doesn't stay straight and the controller no longer wants to tilt it.... it just stays looking straight and doesn't move regardless of the knob being pushed.

    On the frame of the quad, there's not really any BAD damage, just some scratches but no bent arms or anything

    You can take off the Gimbal to see if it is making the phantom shaky.
    after take it off recalibrate the compas.
    Also You can, whitout props, turn on the phantom and see/ listen if some motor work diferent than the others.

    I took the props off and listened and they all sounded the same. I also always recalibrate the compass as mentioned before take off . I also tried flying without the gimbal and still shaky

    Did you recalibrate the imu?
    With software assistance?
    Do the basic and advance.

    You have to download the phantom assistance software from dji web. And the drivers for the phantom.
    Then open the software, register and login.
    After that conect your phantom and look the calibration imu funcion. Do the advance calibration.
    Good luck.
