JXD 509G review :

Much like the WLToys Q212G we have recently reviewed, JXD 509G from Pioneer is a very capable FPV drone. It has a very futuristic design (resembling the Yuneec Q500), contrary to other standard looking quadcopters we have come to get used to. This model has been a great hit on the low-budget quadcopter market, mainly due to its excellent and affordable FPV quality, accurate hold feature and unique design. Let us take a deeper look into this cool looking brushed quadcopter, follow us on our JXD 509G review! 🙂

Flight time

One of the best things I first noticed about this quad is the flight time it gets from its 3.7V 600mAh Li-Po battery (around 60 minutes to charge). It does incline more to the 9 minutes than the 10, but still, considering it transmits real time video in decent quality with no delay, it is very nice for a low-budget quad. The Q212G from WLToys we reviewed recently, is on a higher budget and does not achieve this flight time.

JXD-509G-CONTROLLER

Camera

The 2 megapixel camera (720p resolution) could be better quality on the recording of the video as it does have a considering amount of “jello” effect. However, the live video transmitted to your FPV screen, directly installed on your controller, is surprisingly good quality with less ‘jello’ effect. The camera can be tilted to 20º degrees. Included in the package there is a LCD screen to display your live video and a 4GB Micro-SD card to record videos and photos.

Features

Among its features we can find the now common headless mode (easier flight regardless of drone’s position. Locking on the direction to where the drone started flying). One-Key Home Return (push the left control to the opposite direction you started flight, drone should return to you). Other great function is the Automatic Landing (automatically descends to a landing at the press of a button, it also works as a safety function when 509G hits low battery).Finally, and most useful function is the Altitute Holder (high density air pressure sensor which can precisely hold the height), great for recording video, allowing you to focus on the camera.

Crash resistant?

509G also resists most crashes, made of a very flexible material, it will bend, preventing pieces to brake or snatch on harder hits. The light frame is capable of resisting a somewhat strong wind, not much though. Prevent from flying it on very windy days. As far as distance goes it can reach around 150 meters, which is decent for an affordable quadcopter with a complete FPV package like this.

Other common specifications are the 6 axis gyro which give stronger stability, 360º degrees air trick with a push of a button, colorful LED lights suitable for flying in the dark at night.

The complete package includes: 509G RC Quadcopter, Transmitter 2.4Ghz frequency, 2.0MP 720p Camera, 5.8G FPV, USB Cable, 4G Memory Card, Card Reader, LCD Monitor, FPV USB Cable, 3.7V 600mAh Li-Po Battery, 4 x Spare Main Blade, Screwdriver.

Does the 509g also have Wi-Fi?

2

My drone will constantly beep when i press the start/stop button to fly and the props don't move. Do you know why this is? (I have tryed different batteries.)

3

It's a very good drone no probs at all

4

Very well constructed. The controls are sensitive and a lot of practice is required to master them but once mastered the drone handles superbly.

5

While it handles superbly, it's altitude hold is great. It's a flimsy piece of junk, not worth the price, played with drones half the price that are much more robust.

Lasted 2 days. First day all good, flying well maintaining height, reasonably stable. Second day it wouldn't fly. Take off and lift to around 2 feet then rolls to the front left and crashes. I have tried everything to get it to fly, swapped props, adjusted trims, calibrated sensors, swapped batteries for new, nothing made any difference. Haven't told the person who bought it as a present for me no doubt she will be as disappointed as I am.

Lasted less than 2 days. Only had about 20 minutes flight time. First day all good, flying well, holding level quite well. Next day all it would do is lift about 2 feet off the ground then roll to the front left and crash to the ground. Nothing helps, have tried re-calibrating the sensors, swapping props, new batteries in controller, adjusting trim but no joy. In fact that would be my synopsis of this product NO JOY.

You have to know the jello is from the unbalanced props.

9

Does this drone have a Gimbal??? Does the cam move at all??

10

It doesn't have a gimbal. Yes, you can move camera ( up/down) manually, but you can't move it using controller. I hope that helps.

Sorry for delay, somehow I missed this comment.
