Walkera Rodeo 110 Brushless Micro FPV Racer


Let's take an up close look at the new Walkera Rodeo 110 brushless micro FPV racing drone. This little thing is amazing!



Main Features:
- Combines powerful brushless motors and high-strength carbon fiber frame kit
- 600TVL HD camera and 5.8GHz real-time transmission, allowing you to be barrier-free view in the darkness
- Space-saving and lightweight, it has a high thrust-to-weight ratio, which makes it accelerate swiftly and allows you to indulge in the fun of flying indoors
- 33 x 68mm PCB circuit board integrates PDB, flight controller, video transmitter, receiver and other modules
- Modular design - easy to install, disassemble, maintain; plug-in power transfer and map chip unit

Specifications:
Walkera Rodeo 110
Size: 101 x 117 x 55mm
Weight: 101g ( not including battery )
Receiver: Rodeo 110
Flight controller: Rodeo 110 F3
Brushless motor: WK-WS-13-002A
Brushless ESC: Rodeo 110
LiPo battery: 7.4V 850mAh 25C 2S
Fight time: 6 minutes
Working temperature: -10 to 40 Deg.C

First LOS outdoor flight video added below. All I can say so far is WOW! This little thing is a pocket rocket! Incredibly stable, and incredibly quick! The factory tune is very good. The fact that they put angle, horizon, and acro modes all on the mix switch from the factory is a very welcome feature. It means that beginners that are ready to step up to a brushless racer can get a feel for the quad in angle mode, before jumping to more advanced flight modes, and then can switch to more advanced modes without having to mess with any settings in BetaFlight or CleanFlight.

This has quickly become my favorite quad in my collection. I love the fact that I can take it out to my backyard, and let her rip. Something I'm just not able to do with my larger racers. If you're looking for something fast, and agile that you can fly at home, and not have to pack up and take to the flying field, then this may be the perfect quadcopter for you.



















Quick first flight video. Was a bit windy, but it handled it very well.

Flight test of the Nano-Tech battery. This battery definitely has more punch than the stock battery.

A quick sample of the FPV camera feed.

For extra batteries here are a couple inexpensive options.

Nano-Tech From HobbyKing

GoolRC on eBay

Stock battery weighs 46.8g and the Turnigy Nano-Tech 850's weigh 47.2g but are punchier than the stock battery.



Spare parts are now available from walkeraheliusa

And for international buyers helipal has a full compliment of spares available.

I'll continue to update as more options become available

Another quick LOS fun flight out in the back yard.

New Nano-Tech batteries are scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Weather permitting (forecast looks good) I will have a flight time and performance report, as well as some new video.

Has anyone figured out a way to flash a proper Betaflight onto this thing? Can airmode be enabled somehow?

I have been happy with the stock settings, so I haven't even plugged mine into the computer yet.

I've had this for 3 days now. It is the best out of the box racer that I've ever purchased. It felt good to use the Devo 7, after months of neglect.

It is definitely a great little quad right out of the box. It's currently my favorite in my collection, and has become my go to for backyard flying.

Still available for a little while longer for only $169 RTF. If you've been thinking about getting one of these now is the time. These are awesome flying little quads, with lots of zip.
