drone won't start and constantly beeps

I just got a new DJI Phantom 3 Standard a couple weeks ago. Today I tried to fly it (probably shouldn't have it was really windy) and on takeoff it got pulled into a tree. As it fell the battery fell out and hit the pavement. I put the battery back in, but now every time I start it it constantly beeps and the rotors twitch, but it won't let me fly. Please help me.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I crashed mine last night, it is now doing exactly as your described

The battery hitting the pavement make me believe the battery is damaged. The motor drivers aren't getting enough current to switch properly. Could that beep be low battery warning?

Not sure if it's related but I had constant beeping and I had to re-calibrate my gimbal and the beeping stoped. You may have just nocked it out of calibration.
