Default Tail won't hold

Tail won't hold after a light crash. Wants to drift right. Tried a rebind several times. Put on new tail. Everything looks good on it. Cant figure it out, any suggestions?

If it's just a slow drift, and you have checked all your flight mode rudder trims I'd say it's vibe related.

V2 board per chance?

Chewed up main gear is usually the culprit for me. V1 or V2
