Default Drift King 340 gyro problems, need help!

Hi group!
My new drift king 340 just started suffering stability problems after a crash, happened in mid flight, suddenly started wobbling in flight, when it went down, I had to re-attach a connecting buckle and since then, it can't maintain stable flight. Nothing seems to be missing, although I do notice that the equalizer bar seems to be able to get slightly tangled in the rotors now when they're stopped and are powering up, which never used to happen.
I'll attach a video after work if that helps any.
much obliged!

Had to Google the drift king thingy. It's a infrared control coaxial toy with no swashplate, horizontal tail rotor and a servo that seems to be shifting the main rotor assembly sideways, presumably to alter CoG and produce some resemblance of aileron control.

Sorry, these toys are disposable, you are very unlikely to get any kind of support, whether in parts or information. Suggest spend money on a Blade coaxial helicopter as an entry point into this hobby the next time.
