Default pitch servo problem

I had a small crash earlier, nothing much and not bad enough to break anything or so i thought.
My pitch servo now stays at max lift, if i unplug the battery and wind it back down as soon as i plug in the battery it just goes straight back to max pitch. I have taken it apart and cleaned the strip and fingers etc and it made no difference, is my servo shot or is there something else i should be looking at.

could be a dirty set of contacts , a broken connection , or a bad FET , here is a link to a thread that covers a similar problem

Try reflowing the wire connections on the servo. If that doesn't work, buy a new one.

Mine did that this last weekend, it ended up being a new servo!
$20 bucks at the LHS.

Before you toss your $ at it, I would connect one of the other servos to the troubled ones original position on the 3in1, just to rule out a fault on the 3in1.
