Issue#88677: Radio Control - My JXD 509G - Upgrades & Mods List

  • Here's a list of all the desired upgrades and mods I have for the JXD 509G.
    • Resolve video jello effect.
      Velcro on camera housing = partially resolved.
      Prop balanced on quad = WAITING ON RESULTS
      Remove all props & test individual motor vibration for source
      OPTION: Mount camera on top
      OPTION: Hot glue the camera on w/out housing (align before it dries!) - another pilots video shows virtually no jello with this mod!
    • Wide Angle Clip Lens
    • Monochrome LCD display on Controller - some JXD 509s have these, mine did not.
    • Better Antenna’s - for Quad, Controller and FPV.
      Antenna mod done on quad = WAITING ON RESULTS
    • Bigger FPV LCD and/or
    • FPV goggle mod
    • Multiple battery upgrade
    • Engine upgrade
      I've read (not verified) the motors are 8.5x20mm. That means these models have compatible engines:
      Hubsan X4, 107C, 107D, NOT 107L
      Walkera W100s V929 V949 V959 V969
      The engines I found:
      - $31.00 insane speed
      - $27 fast speed
      - $11.99 - Husband originals
      - $8.80 for two Stock Replacements
    • Caring Case
    I bought the ebay stock replacements because I needed the 10 toothed gear for the JXD 509V and I couldn't find only the gear sold anywhere.

    I will update this list as I research and reach goals. Mostly for my own good, but maybe someone will benefit as well.

  • Issue#12219: Radio Control - JXD 509G FPV Drone Mods

    Here's a thread for any mods made on the JXD 509G FPV. Any mods to the 509W or 509V would be fitting too. Much discussion has been started on the thread JXD 509G FPV Drone Flight Test Review. Now that I received my own, I'm going beyond flight test reviews to modifications. Anyone upgrade the props? The motors? The batteries? Remove some of the weight of the body somehow? I'd love to see & hear if it increased your flight time. Pictures preferred. Attached Thumbnails Views: N/A

  • Issue#592194: Radio Control - has anyone resolved the infamous JXD 509G binding issue?

    Hi everyone, been having a blast ever since i received my jxd 509G. a home made cloverleaf antenna on the fpv receiver has breathed new life into this thing! but in the last few days i've started having binding issues... after the binding procedure the LEDS keep blinking for a while and then they start blinking very quickly, like a strobe effect. it seems like it isn't binded at all but if if bring both sticks down and in the LEDS on the quad start flashing as if i'm calibrating the gyro!!! but it stil won't start, and no other buttons work either (lights, video...) what is this all about!?!?! it can take me SEVERAL attemps before i am finally able to bind. always seems to be a crapshoot. so i've read about this issue a lot but wasn't able to find a definitive fix or procedure... what is your experience with this? i want to get this right from the start!!! thanks!

  • Issue#79083: Radio Control - JXD 509G JXD509G 5.8G FPV With 2.0MP HD Camera High Hold Mode RC Quadcopter

    JXD 509G JXD509G 5.8G FPV With 2.0MP HD Camera High Hold Mode RC Quadcopter I bought a JXD 385 a couple of years ago when I was flying Wltoys V202s and V252s and it was a good quad at that time that competed with the Wltoys quads well. It came with a transmitter that did not include autoflips at 100% rates like the V252 tx and had the same protocol as the Wltoys, so I used that transmitter for a while to fly the Wltoys quads. The 385 flew very well but did not have good LEDs for night flying. My 385 still works but all four motors have been replaced once. Banggood asked if I would like to review the JXD 509G, I said yes. This is only my second JXD quad. I recieved this quad on 2/01/2016 from Banggood. Good shipping time of only 14 days using China Post. You can find it here: http://www.banggood.com/JXD-509G-JXD...p-1001776.html Attachment 8680835 First Impressions As mentioned in the other JXD 509 threads this quad copies the design of the Yuneec Q500, a larger quad that I am

  • Issue#95603: Radio Control - JXD 509G 5.8 GHz FPV Quadcopter with Altitude Hold (work in progress)

    One of the current hypes in cheap RTF "multirotor-country" is altitude hold. The idea is to make flying easier, as throttle control is one of the hardest functions to grasp, for fresh pilots. Another benefit should be, to have a more stable platform for shooting video. Will this work out as intended? A closer look at the JXD 509G might give some answers.

  • Issue#422541: Radio Control - jxd 509g questions / opinions

    Hi! After lots of scouring the internet to find the best new fpv quad under $200, i settled for the jxd 509g. The only quad i owned before this was the Hubsan X4 h107L (no fpv) and what i loved about it was how quick and "nervous" it is. it is super responsive and if you use gravity properly the thing really flies like a rocket. i'm scared that the jxd 509g won't be as quick.... i've tried a syma x5c and was a little dissapointed that it just felt like a big whale. it was super stable, but a little boring compared to the x4. so to those of you who own or have flown the jxd 509g, how did you like it? is it quick? responsive? how is the fpv range? flight time? do you think it is the best fpv quad at this price point or do you prefer another model? curious to hear what y'all have to say!

  • Issue#428127: Radio Control - Syma X8 HG or JXD 509G

    If you had a choice to make which one would you buy. This will be my first quad, but I've flown gas and electic heli's for many years. I wanted to get something to practice on before I get a Yuneec Q500+ later this summer. Please don't start suggesting other quads, as I've narrowed my search down to these 2. Thanks, jjp

  • Issue#963977: Radio Control - my Radian XL mods & upgrades for F5J/ALES

    Hi guys, I thought I'd share with you the modifications and upgrades I'm making to my Radian XL to make her a bit more competitive in F5J/ALES. First the underside of the wing needs some serious attention. The way it comes from HH there are deep gullies following the wingspan. These get filled with lightweight spackle, sanded smooth and covered over with lightweight packing tape. Next the outer panels get painted black for visibility. The are 13" long so at the wing break of the center panel and the midpanel I've painted another 13" wide black stripe. next I'll work on the tail feathers...

  • Issue#1923: Radio Control - SW capacitor/ librepilot issue HELP!!

    Hi all, I have a problem.. My Eachine landed from about a metre flat on its belly and the SW capacitor came off, and one off the connecting pins broke so I replaced with a 470uf 25v from maplin.. LibrePilot takes longer than usual to choose the FC in wizard then on setting the motor start points that SW motor runs seemingly slower and rattly, then on saving the wizard settings it gets to preparing mixer settings and crashes there. That's about as much info as I have as I'm new to this and only had my Eachine 2 days Thanks in advance

    Hi! i am very new to Quad flying and am having a little trouble with my FPV Setup, i purchased the Quanum V2, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Tx_Rx_Set.html, and the Quanum Nova quad, been having heeps of fun flying but when i tried to get the goggles to work i was getting less than 15m without the no signal warning, i have the Transmitter mounted inside the quad with the antenna poking out between the two front rotors, ( i can post a pick if you need) is there something interrupting the signal because of this mounting point? when i am next to the drone the signal is clear as day without much static at all, any ideas why this is happening? Thanks!!!

  • Issue#5776: Radio Control - Eflite Whipit Mods

    Hey guys this is a mod page for the Whipit. I noticed right off the back that the rudder started to get chewed up so I put an Ultra Micro tail wheel onto it. I works great. The other thing I am doing with my Whipit is putting a motor on it. Though I am having trouble with it working. Currently it is stuttering when I throttle up. Not sure if this is a battery issue or not but I will find out. Pics are coming soon!!!

  • Issue#8246: Radio Control - Uncontrollable Yaw Issue

    I have an F330 clone frame that has an Openpilot CC3D FC, HK 25/30a ESC's and Propdrive 28-26s 1200kv motors. I hooked it up to the Openpilot GCS and went through the FC and transmitter configuration steps. The problem is that after arming and taking off, it wants to continually yaw left and kind of bounce up and down making it hard to control. I checked most settings and everything looks fine including the motor RPM speed sliders as well as I completed the ESC calibration and double checked that the props are on correctly. I also looked on my Turnigy 9xr controller settings and it looks like it is correct. I am not sure what to do next. This is not my first quad but I am clueless what to do next. Everything is new with the exception of the ESC's and motors. Thanks! John

  • Issue#11626: Radio Control - Issue with TDisaster

    Just wanted to get the word out- I bought a battery from TDisaster. He was extremely responsive on the day I pm'ed him about buying the battery and was quick to take my money, but all but disappeared afterwards. Payment sent on 1-11-16. About a week after I sent payment, 1-17-16, I sent him a PM asking for the tracking info because I should have received the battery by then. A couple days went by then he said that he was too busy and didn't get it out but that he would do so shortly. That was a week and a half ago and I still have no battery and he hasn't replied to a PM in ~four days. It's now 1-26-16 and still no battery or response. Here is the original FS thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2569355 I'll update if I hear anything or if there ends up being a positive resolution. Just wanted to get the word out since he has some other stuff for sale too. EDIT: And now his PM box is full.

  • Issue#11927: Radio Control - SkyRC Quattro B6AC issue

    This is the second SkyRC Quattro B6AC I have and both seem to have the same issue. One of the four charging circuits has given up the ghost. This one pictured the top right gave up and the second the bottom right. I emailed SkyRC and of course no response to 2 emails for customer service. I opened up the unit itself in hope it was four separate charging circuits boards and I could find a replacement or combine for one functioning charger. Question is anyone had this issue with this brand or Hitech they are identical in every way. If so were you able to trouble shoot the problem? Attached Thumbnails Views: N/A

  • Issue#26371: Radio Control - FTDI Adapter issue?

    Hi, I am having weird issue with my silabs ftdi adapter with windows 10. First, I have the driver installed. I have been reading around seeing that FTDI has installed an update in windows that bricks any (knock off) FTDI chips. Is this a result of it? Background, I had Windows 10 pro since it first released. I have flashed a minimosd or two within that time with this same FTDI adapter with no issues. I recently cleaned my desktop with a fresh install of Windows 10 pro. Anyone know what or why this is happened? Thank you. http://www.readytoflyquads.com/cp2102-usb-adapter (note I saw a few videos of Arduinos getting bricked as well. Could something have happened to where I bricked this?

  • Issue#28097: Radio Control - Power issue

    Hello, New here and just trying to get into a multirotor hobby, so I purchased the LS 128 Sky Hunter. Flew it for a bit, crashed the heck out of it, but it is pretty durable...and now have a quick issue. When I full power it, it remains at about half power and it doesn't come off the ground, but...when I yawl it right at full power, it goes to full power...yawling left full power does nothing. So 2 of the motors are engaging full power (yawl right) and 2 are not. I have made no modifications to it. Sounds like there is a disconnect somewhere, but I am not sure where to begin. I took the unit entirely apart and all wires seem to be connected. Anybody have any ideas?? Thanks

  • Issue#30476: Radio Control - Quad drops out of the air, suspect Emax 1806 2300kv de-synch or motor issue?

    Hi All, I was hoping some quadcopter experts could help me diagnose a quadcopter issue. I have a ZMR250 quad (had about 1 month) with naze32 FC, 4x DYS BL20A ESC and 4x Emax 1806 2280KV motors. The issue i'm having is that the quad sometimes just drops out of the air! I can fly for a while then it just drops out of the sky, once it occurs it seems to re-occur more frequently. When it occurs the motor does not feel hot. I don't think its a power delivery issue, it flys ok for a while till the issue occuers, all motors connect to the same power distribution board and the connections are good, if it was a power issue I think other motors/ESCs would have the issue too. I'm using 1300mAH 45C battery which should be fine. This has been happening for a few weeks now or at least more frequently over the past few weeks. Trouble shooting I have tried: 1) Checked all connections 2) Initially I would stop the motors to prevent damage when it crashed. I searched for possible issue and I think it
