Calibrating the VISUO XS809HW: Step by step guide

How to calibrate the VISUO XS809HW?

Based on my experience, after few crashes, drones start to fly abnormally even if there are no visible damages. Performing gyro-calibration can solve sideward flying or other flight disorders of your VISUO XS809HW.

As lately I got many emails regarding how to calibrate the VISUO XS809HW drone, I thought it would be helpful to make a step-by-step tutorial about it.

You can restore the drone’s factory settings in two different ways, either using the remote controller or through the XSW UFO APP. Both ways are described in the XS809HW user manual.

Calibrating VISUO XS809HW by remote controller

Resetting the VISUO XS809HW through remote controller (steps that need to be done)

  1. Turn On, both remote controller and drone;
  2. Place the XS809HW drone on a horizontal surface;
  3. Bind the transmitter with the drone by pushing the throttle stick (right one in mode2) to the highest position and then pull it back to the lowest position;
  4. Final step is to move both sticks to the outer lower position (like in the picture above) for about 2-3 seconds. LED lights will start to flash rapidly. That’s it, now the drone is recovered to its original factory settings and ready to fly again 🙂

Calibrating the VISUO XS809HW through phone APP

Calibrating the VISUO XS809HW through your phone is even more easier. After you connected to drone with your phone (WiFi bind), you need to enter the settings menu (as shown in the picture bellow) and select the “Gyro calibrate” icon. Like in case of manual calibration, the LEDs will start to flash rapidly, than steady On.

  1. Finally I have found you. I hope to get your attention on my “stupid” problem, but that it is!
    Well I have made a very stupid thing to try the Visuo inside my home and it crashed down on the floor. The problem is that right now, when I switch on, one propeller is not working and I really don’t know what was broken. If I try to move it with a finger I observe that it has not the same resistance of others.
    Can you suggest me what I can do? Thank for your attention!

  2. My problem with a visionary farmer, which will not be connected to the camera. the wi fi is connected and the camera will not. I calibrated with the steering wheel and there is no help. the flight is fine. lp.

    • You should turn on drone,bind the controller to the drone . Then on your phone go to wifi connect.. go on the app then click should work

  3. When I use the app, everything is in black&white even when i’m recording, but the pictures are in color. Do you know what may be the problem?

  4. Hello, one of the propellers turns even with the switch off on the drone/controller. The only way to turn off is to remove the battery. Tried resetting but didn’t work, Tried flying but seems like that prop isn’t turning fast enough and drone just flips over.

  5. the back left (b) propeller of my VISUO XS809HW drone does not turn of even with the switch on both drone and controller off. Was flying good until it landed and prop kept moving but not at full power strange. tried resetting but same please help, only stops when battery is removed.

    • Hi Joe,

      I’m afraid that is something wrong with the flight controller / receiver board. Also could be a short-circuit. An un-soldered wire, you should take apart the VISUO XS809HW an do a visual inspection. BTW, the power switch is a “software” button, does not truly disconnect the battery.

      good luck!

  6. Good morning ….. can you help me to connect the battery of my Visuo drone. I see one of the propellers starts to turn even if the drone is with the little plug off ……. know to solve this issue?
    bom dia …..pode me ajudar ao conectar a bateria do meu drone visuo uma das helices começa a girar mesmo que o drone esteja com a chavinha desligada …….sabe o que fazer pra resolver

  7. When I push takeoff, mine spools up and then immediately starts flying to the right, then shuts down. It then wont do anything without being completely shut down and re-started, where it goes into this takeoff crash bootloop again… any ideas?
