  • Issue#1088789: Quadcopter - Micro SD Card Issue - JXD 509G

    Hello all, This is my first post so bear with me. My name is Mike and I am an absolute newbie to the world of Quadcopters. I just bought a low cost drone to see how I liked and would get on with them, and I love it. The one I purchased is the JXD 509G and I'm already looking to upgrade somewhat. For now I am enjoying this and as it is so cheap I'd rather keep playing for a while before I crash anything of more value. The issue I have is the Micro SD card - firstly, only the first video...

  • 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#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#624324: Quadcopter - Syma x8c vs JJRC H26 vs JXD 509g

    So! I'm still trying to get a refund for my Kai Deng K70c. Meanwhile, I need another toy-grade quad. While I really want a brushless quadcopter, they're really expensive for me, but I may get the JJRC X1 some day soon. What I need at the moment is a lasting camera bird. As my title suggests, I have three copters in mind. I love altitude hold, with the JXD 509 has, but I don't think that it has enough power to lift a GoPro. Does it? I know the Syma x8c carries a GoPro, and I've seen some... Syma x8c vs JJRC H26 vs JXD 509g

Now I know alot of you guys are gurus with this stuff, and I'm not, so I ask you be a bit easy describing the terminology thanks.

    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?

    Hi, my name is Steve, and I'm an addict... I've been interested in quads for a while now but was always offended by the price. In October, while poking around on Amazon I came across the Syma X5c for a great price. I read some reviews and decided to get it. 2 days later it was at my door. I had some fun with that but waiting for the weather to be good enough to take it out was bothering me. I found Syma X12S micro quads on line and bought a couple, not too bad for indoors, they can...

  • Issue#176886: Radio Control - Horizon hobby corsair tail issue

    Hey guys i have a horizon hobby corsair that i absolutly love flying but when i speed up the ass end starts prophesing up and down. Checked the cg and everything is okay. My idea is the as3x is over reacting when the tail starts to wiggle a little and keeps trying to over correct. Its just a really odd thing to me. I might try putting a spar along the tail so that it stays rigid but im not even sure thats the problem. A little insight would be great thanks.

    Hi folks, I am new to this forum. I have a question that I hoping someone here can help me with. I have a qw350-2 quadcopter and I am firing it up for my first time. For whatever reason I can't get the quadcopter to unlock- it stays in "disarm" status. I follow the instructions and wait, but it never disarms and the lights on the quadcopter flash constant red and blue after about 30 seconds or so. The view itself is fine, and it picks up 6+ satellites consistently. Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks in advance for,any help given here.... JC

  • 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!
