  • Xieda 9958 Old vs New 5-in-1 RX

    Just a quick post showing my previous Xieda 9958 5-in-1 versus the new one I just received. Some components are moved around and the LED has been moved to the rear. This will allow you to easily see when your 9958 successfully reconnected with your transmitter upon insertion of a battery. Previously, it was hard […]

  • Xieda 9958 with Solo Pro Head

    Many people like the unique head design of the Nine Eagles Solo Pro and Bravo SX. With the flybar on top, it gives it a unique, stable flight characteristic…yet maintain agility and does nice tight turns. So here’s a simple mod. Take the Solo Pro head and shaft. Drill a hole for the shaft collar […]

  • Alternate Xieda 9958 body colors?

    Interesting development. It appears that in some market, the Great Wall Xieda 9958 and 9998 has rebranded cousins… Here’s a couple of Nincoair Micro Evo 190 that appears to use the same canopy and parts as the Xieda 9958, which means that the canopy will fit the Xieda 9998 as well. Unfortunately, these units are […]

  • Turnigy 9x – Xieda 9958 Throttle Curve

    Turnigy 9x – Xieda 9958 Throttle Curve

    I recently purchased a Turnigy 9x and am in the process of setting up my preferred throttle curves for it. So I figure I’d share. From my understanding, being able to set your throttle curve is the benefit of setting up the initial profile as a “heli” instead of “acro”. To get to the throttle […]

  • MLP4DSM DSM2 Module versus Xieda 9958

    The range on the Xieda 9958 isn’t that great. If you open up the transmitter, you’ll notice that there is no antenna wire connected to the 2.4ghz module. For comparision, take a look at the inside of the E-Flite MLP4DSM transmitter.

  • Alternative Battery Mount Location

    I am currently testing out how mounting the battery lower affects the flight characteristics of the 9958. It seems like it’s improving the pivot on bank turns…but I need further testing and/or feedback from others.

  • 9958 with Carbon Fiber Main Shaft

    9958 with Carbon Fiber Main Shaft

    Fabricated a carbon fiber main shaft for the 9958. Here’s the stock 9958 weight before and after the carbon fiber shaft upgrade. The stock weight without the battery is above. The carbon fiber upgrade 9958 is the photo below. The main motor has a lift of about 42g. So shaving a gram off the flight […]

  • Xieda 9958 Carbon Fiber Main Shaft

    Xieda 9958 Carbon Fiber Main Shaft

    A project I have been putting off until tonight. Switched out the aluminum 9958 main shaft to a carbon fiber one to shave off some weight. Just sharing some dimensions in case someone else is thinking of making a carbon fiber main shaft for the Xieda 9958. First I took a Bravo III carbon fiber […]
