JXD 509W review

JXD 509W is a quadcopter drone with WIFI, Real-time video Transmission, 2.4GHz transmitter or APP Control, 720P CAM with 4CH transmission, 6 Axis Gyro for stable flights and Headless Mode. The altitude hold feature of this quadcopter makes flying FPV very easy as it automatically maintains a steady altitude without need of pilot input.

The 509W is actually an advanced toy-grade quadcopter (for its price range) that can take some very impressive videos thanks to its highly stable flight performance.

The JXD 509W features wifi control and video transmission and comes in two other variants — the 509G with 5.8GHz FPV and the 509V which is the basic and most affordable version that has a camera but does not feature any kind of FPV.

Flight test and video review:

Flight Test, Pros & Cons:

Flight and functions demo:

3 speed modes are available — low, medium and high. Low speed mode is best used when you’re trying to take videos or photos and is also the best mode to use if you need the 509W to fly around at slow and steady speeds. High speed mode releases the 509W’s full potential where speed is concerned and flying angles become very aggressive to accompany the sporty flying performance.

It shoot good and stable videos, and this is mostly due to its highly stable flying performance assisted by its superb altitude hold feature. Under highly ideal conditions where there is little to no wind at all, aerial videos taken with the 509W is simply a class above all other toy quadcopters

JXD 509W features

Let’s see the main functions of JXD 509W quadcopter:

720p camera

It features a 720p camera that can film videos at a resolution of 720p or shoot pictures. The most impressive feature of the 509W is its ability to take reasonably stable aerial videos. Being a sub-$100 toy quadcopter, the 509W’s video performance isn’t exactly in the same league as more expensive aerial photography drones such as the Phantom 3 but within that price range it is probably one of the best, if not the best.

FPV transmission

This drone comes with FPV transmission, that allows real time image transmission with wifi connection between the drone and your phone. If you wish, you can also use your phone to command the drone, instead of using the remote control. The 509W’s camera features WiFi FPV which can be accessed via the Exploration UFO app on your smartphone. Videos and photos from the camera are also stored on your smartphone or tablet via the app. The 509W’s camera does not allow you to record files onto a micro SD card in the camera itself.

Headless mode

In headless mode the drone will keep it’s direction no matter the orientation of the drone, completely solving pilot “loss of orientation” problems.

Automatic return

If the pilot lose the drone in the sky, or isn’t able to make it come back because he lost orientation, the drone will come back automatically with the one key automatic return function

360 degree rollover

Mad about flips and aereal evolutions? This drone automatically make flips when in rollover mode, and can roll up, down, right, 360 degrees

Altitude hold

The altitude hold feature of this quadcopter makes flying FPV very easy as it automatically maintains a steady altitude without need of pilot input. Altitude hold makes flying a drone so much more easy and this feature is very well implemented in the 509W. To keep its altitude consistent, a barometer in the drone is used to keep track on air pressure. The 509W attempts to keep this air pressure reading consistent by adjusting its propulsion accordingly to compensate for altitude gains or loss.

One key taking off / landing

If you are not a expert pilot, or just think landing and taking off is annoying, just press a button and the drone will do that for you with no worries.

Led lights

The drone is equipped with bright LED ights, making it more beautiful, safe and visible at night. Beside, the head has red lights, and the tail has green lights, so you will always know the direction of the quadcopter.


Propellers are flexible and can be bend up to 90 degrees, so are restistant from abrasion and crash.

Bearer bar is made to resist to crashes too.

Remote control

To make things easier for the pilot, the throttle stick has been configured to be self-centering at 50% which is the level needed to hover the 509W. Moving the 509W up or down is as simple as increasing throttle power or reducing it.



This drone is equipped with a 3.7V 600mAh Li Po battery with a Charging Time of About 70min and a Flying Time of 8 – 10min.
