JXD 509W, a $80 Advanced Toy-grade Quadcopter

For drone beginner who never flying drones, you must buy something suitable for you. Even you got a drone with full specification, it will useless either potential harm if it hard to operated. I want to review drone quadcopter JXD 509W that came with small size. Not to specific same, about two or three times smaller than Yuneec product.

JXD 509W designed 38 x 21.5 cm with 6 gyro axis. So it will fly stable in the strong wind. On the bottom, a pair leg will make this drone stand steadily and also protect 2.0 MP HD camera.

This drone powered by 3.7 volt 600 mAh battery. Not too high, but the factory stated that the drone can fly approximately 5-8 minutes with a full charged battery.

You can charge battery by USB port. So it so simple recharging while you in traveling or no power socket around you.

JXD 509W operated by 2.4 GHz remote control. With 4 radio channel, you can fly it within 50 meter radius. You can use your smartphone as screen, so we will have a full control of manuver and extra ability like one key return, Light Switch, Speed Key, and the most important camera control.

Remote Control powered by four AA battery, so if you want to fly it for a long time, don't forget to bring some extra remote battery.

JXD 509W priced about $80 in US. If you looking for an professional aircraft, I think it is not the right choice. Never compare it with $800-1000 quadcopter drones like DJI Phantom, but it worth for beginner. The right price for capabilities I mean.
