I did not believe it at first.
I have won a Devo10 to be reviewed.
I just mailed hobbyone for the shipping cost to Belgium.
I can not wait to review the RX&TX
Lets hope i dont have signal los like i have with my Devo12.
Crached 2 of my birds when using the devo12 with failsafe selected.

Without failsafe selected no problem.My 550 did not crach.

I am still getting familiar with it, but so far it seems like a very capable transmitter. I had to update to Walkera's latest software tool to update the firmware, but other than that the update went smoothly.

Photos below.

Thanks again hobbyone.
I want buy one ! it looks great , just like a black horse.

Hey ED,

Were you able to do a firmware update?

Devo10 in hand

I received my Devo10 yesterday evening upon returning home from work to find it had been left by UPS where the rain got to the box.

Luckily HobbyOne had done a great job packing it up, as there was no damage.

A big Thank YOU again goes out to Hobbyone for giving me this Tx for free.

Overall, My 1st impression is this is a great deal for the price point. The weight w/ 8 AA dry cell batteries is 890 grams. The ergonomics are very comfortable. Feels better in my hands than my Devo8s or Devo6.

All the switches and knobs work well. The sticks are at a nice height and feel good on my thumbs. The throttle stick (Mode 2 left stick) needs a little adjustment for my preference, maybe a hair tighter.

Programming was simple, even w/ no instructions. I setup my 120D02s in about five minutes using the settings from my Devo6.

1St flight was great. Unlike trying to fly the 120 w/ my Devo8s, (some kind of glitch w/ my 120 and the Devo8s) The Devo10 worked flawlessly. Helicopter behaved exactly as expected.

My favorite function of the new Devo10 is the vibration function. Great for if you flying a loud model (V400D02) and cannot hear your countdown timer beeping. Very useful!

I will report back in after the rain stops and I can get some additional flights in with some different models.

I wish Walkera would make some 4 and 6 channel micro receivers.

Nice. Got a question for you though. Is your scroll button on the right functioning like it should? My first version has the button programmed where pushing up decreases the value (opposite of what it should be). Is this the case with yours?

Ive gotta admit, $129 ($149 w/ 10ch rx) for this radio is a pretty incredible deal.
Might have to pick one up as a secondary TX for when im not using my 12S or when I have friends with me.
I coulda SWORN the Devo 12 had the vibration alerts before buying it awhile ago, bums me out it doesnt and this does haha.

Just curious. Did you do a range test? If so, did it perform correctly?

I've seen another thread claiming brownouts with 801 rx & has been corrected with the 802 rx. I have no idea if that's true.
