The altitude hold feature of this quadcopter makes flying FPV very easy as it automatically maintains a steady altitude without need of pilot input. Find it here
– Wifi version offers significant savings vs the 5.8Ghz model (over $30 cheaper).
– Altitude hold feature works very well. It maintains a steady altitude while you maintain focus on flying FPV.
– Reasonably good flight control range at over 80 meters.
– Automatic landing: It automatically descends to a landing at the press of a button, or on low battery.
– Headless mode and one key return features.
– Usable FPV video signal range is significantly less as compared to the more expensive 5.8Ghz model. WiFi FPV video is smooth with not much lag when the quadcopter is close. But it quickly becomes very laggy and choppy with frozen frames when flown at ranges over 30 meters.
– Motors can not be stopped quickly. Concern of motor overheat if motors continue running after a crash.

Have you flown the Protocol slipstream??? It’s a small quad copter but I’ve
been flying it for the past week and it flies great!!
plus it’s pretty cheap i got it for 18 $ :3 !
My xk detect x380 Is coming this week. I got 45 dollar gimbal and run can
from your videos 🙂 I am very exited for it?
I’m looking to get a long distance/high altitude flyer. Preferably fpv or
wifi. also can stay somewhat steady in a light wind. Around $200-300. any
I really like my 509G –
The altitude hold is great.
The only thing that is annoying is the flight time, only about 6-7 min.
I need some larger batteries.
Informative, good video. 🙂 Please provide your recommendation(s) regarding
purchasing a good value balance battery charger. I have been looking at the
GT POWER X-CHARGER C.
If you watch the sky you can see a trail let by a plane which makes an arch
of 180 degrees !
What would be your best suggestion for a FPV drone, for photos and videos.
With a good range, and a decent amount of fly time with camera quality.
Hey 101 the real one the actual Yuneec Typhoon Q500+ is soooo much better
and is on sale for those interested for less than 800 bucks! For toy grades
I would not recommend wifi fpv, toy companies just need to stick with 5.8
do you have a promotion code for gearbest.com I was thinking about ordering
a drone off there. which ones better the syma x5c or the jxd 509w?
How much weight can it hold? Is Go pro fine? or a run cam?
Hello. I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I want to get an
fpv drone that can reach fairly long range. As you mentioned in this video,
this drone does not do very well in long range. Basically, I am looking for
a drone that can help me find cattle in relatively unreachable spots. I
have cattle in rocky highlands and it is sometimes difficult to reach them.
What drone would you recommend? I also do not need a professional drone, I
am looking for something under $100. I have been looking at the Syma x5sw,
but the description says it has a range of 30 meters only. I need more than
50. 100 meters would be sweet. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
Does this particular quad need a micro sd card for the videos?
gearbest is a rip off
how is it that you are able to test range without losing control of the
nice vedio…i cant find any spare battry for this quad.can i use my mjx
x600 or x 400 battry for this bird…thx u
Grate video Can you tell me the difference between the JXD509w and JXD510w
is one newer
Yesterday I had a brain fart and sent my 509G over a rooftop and by the
time it took me to get around the house it was GONE! So I looked and looked
all around the area but couldn’t find it. I was about to give up when the
idea hit me to turn the FPV screen on and when I did there was a vague
image of branches and clouds — a wonderful surprise! So I started walking
and as I did the image became clearer. When I reached a certain point the
image started to fade. So I turned back and as I walked the image
brightened again. It was like using a metal detector.
There were a lot of trees and huge bushes in this area. When I got to a
point where the image seemed brightest and clearest I started playing with
the Start/Stop functions and BINGO! I heard it! Then I found it — hidden
high in a clump of dark bushes. If it was night-time I would have seen the
lights blinking but it was mid-day and the battery would not have lasted
’til dark. But the quad was intact. Not a mark on it. And I am one happy
patron of this excellent, feature-rich little quad.
The FPV feature certainly did more than its intended job for me. So make
sure you keep your monitor charged up.
can ths be converted into 5.8… via the transmitter or receiver board? or
would i have to changed both?
Is the camera adjustable
OK here’s my review of the 509g it has a few very good point alt hold one
key return nice cam bit of jello but here’s the catch the start stop
function if you take the drone up over 2 meters and hit the start /stop to
land the drone it will not work the reson is clear it tried to land but
after about 1/2 foot the alt hold function kicks in and back up it goes it
will keep doing this till it runs out of battery the only test I did not
try was flying it down very low to a few feet then hitting land this has
occurred to me as a after thought
so the 509wv s much better for the price correct
This one I have and I waa stupid to get it off ebay because it never worked
and than caught on fire so now I have a drone that is just for look so I
decide to order the jxd 509v which is better I feel and I order it from
bangood also on the ebay one he only gave me half my money which sucked but
now I have parts I guess for my other one ,The swich for this one broke and
than caught on fire and smoked
I only came here to see how to pair the dam thing to the controller.
Thanks, I can actually use it now xD
Recommend this to a novice?
do i need wifi to use this or not
thank you and good video
