syma flies to the side

I got our 9 year old a syma for his birthday and it worked really well and he and I both got good at flying it. After a crash the balance bar broke which I replaced. It worked well for a bit now when it takes off it veers out of control to one side (i think the left) the trim knobs don't seem to help. I can't seem to notice anything broken or wrong. The only possibility is that I noticed the mainshaft moves up and down, though from a video on this forum it looks like it's supposed to do that. any helpful thoughts appreciated.

Ok, by moving to the left, is it rotating or flat out sliding off to the left? If it's sliding to the left, then it probably has a main shaft that's knocked out of whack. Not exactly sure how you would be able to fix that, sf should be able to help, though.

Some times nothing like getting the hammer involved-smash it to bits-no more drama--Hey only kidding lol

Have found a simple but doggy way of fixing this problem providing buckles not broken on rotor at the top

grab the main shaft and bend gently opposite way to direction problem-be firm but gentle as hollow tubing

just a quick whoosh,it is hard to see if main shaft bent,so try this crazy idea but doable

crazy video of a German guy smashing his S032 to death-however watch and see him bend the main shaft

this guy is a nutter- but fun to watch.and video of him trashing our beloved 107 bending main shaft.

Make sure the balance bar (flybar) isn't too tight. It needs to move freely. Also wondering if a pin on the rotor head is broke,

There is a sensible reply-better than my madness
