Default broken crystal?

I have a futaba 2ph and the stock reciever. I ran my car into a wall (on accident), and the ESC's lights are on, the motor works, the servo works, is the crystal broken?

Put a known working crystal on the same channel in it's place and see if it works. If it doesn't you broke it => Crystals are pretty fragile.

If the crystal was broken you would have no control. If everything works the crystal is not broken.

I checked, it was broken. I just bought it for $13 and it's useless. My budget is very small, so that is a lot of money. Right now I have $50
