It seems the force of the fall made the battery act as a hammer or weight that forced the battery spring leaf terminals to close this way the battery does not make a good contact with the terminals when the back panel is closed. You will know that by installing the battery in the Hornet, if it extends a .125" out side the chassis that means that the back panel is going to push or force the battery to make a good contact with the battery terminals.
To solve the problem you do this: Look inside of the Hornet & locate the two silvery posts that have a leaf spring pointing downward. You want to use a small screw driver & place it under that downward leaf spring & slowly try to lifte it upward. You have to do both at the same force so they will make equal contact with the battery. Install the battery & check & see how far it extends passing the PC board. If it is about .125" outside of the chassis then you got it right. you might have to do that few times until you know that when you install the back panel the battery will be forced to make a tight contact with the terminals.
