Today, I’d like to discuss the Walkera Rodeo 110, a miniature brushless quadcopter with first-person view capabilities. Compared to other popular FPV drones, the Rodeo 110 can be used for both sea and aerial flights.

While researching the Rodeo 110 for my review, I came across a claim that the camera can record HD video. However, this is not true. FPV cameras, which are designed to minimize waiting times, do not have DVR functionality. To be honest, I am tired of fake reviews. FirstQuadcopter.com promises to publish only authentic drone reviews.

The Rodeo 110 is not only the smallest Walkera FPV drone but also one of their latest models. It is similar to their successful older models, the Rodeo 150 and F210.

Features of the Rodeo 110 include:

– A high-strength carbon fiber frame

– An easily cooled modular design

– The sPF3 flight controller with proprietary BetaFlight firmware

– External PPM and SBUS receiversPowerful 1102 brushless motors (WK-WS-13-002)

Individual ESCs for each motor (6A with peaks up to 10A)

600TVL camera with adjustable viewing angle

Available with TX5836 (FCC – 200mW) or TX5837 (CE – 25mW) video recording (5.8GHz VTX)

Built-in buzzer and headlight

About 7-8 minutes of flight

Detailed overview of the Walkera Rodeo 110 Mini FPV Quadcopter

Disclaimer: I received this racing mini drone as part of a product review partnership with RcMoment. Although the product was offered as a gift, all opinions in this review are my own. I have been receiving cheap drones for about a year now, but only recently, when the Rodeo 110 was offered, did we agree.

Rodeo 110 Review – A Brief Overview

I already own a Devo 7 remote control, so I requested a Bind & Fly package for the Walkera 110 Rodeo, which reduced shipping costs and customs fees.The quadcopter arrived in an RTF (ready-to-fly) box, which is suitable for storing and carrying the drone around the airfield. However, I will probably use my Think Tank FPV backpack, as it is not only suitable for carrying an airplane and the Devo 7 drone, but also has space for the FPV goggles and a couple of extra batteries.

Inside the RTF box, I also found a flight battery, a balancing charger, an EU power supply, a micro USB upgrade cable, and two pairs of extra props (all in red). In addition, there was a Rodeo 110 user manual.

Design and Build Quality of the Walkera Rodeo 110

At first glance, I am impressed by the design and build quality of the Rodeo 110. Although it doesn’t have the aggressive look of its older sibling, the Walkera F210, it still inspires a fast-flying car image.The frame of the aircraft is primarily made of 2mm carbon fiber, which is reinforced with strong, non-structural plastic parts. This makes the aircraft extremely durable and able to withstand a crash. The fuselage measures approximately 101 x 117 x 55 millimeters and weighs 101 grams.

The battery is located on the top of the aircraft, between two plates (front and back). It is a Li-Po 2S battery with a capacity of 850mAh, and it provides approximately 6-7 minutes of flight time. The size and capacity of this battery are similar to those of the larger Walkera Rodeo 150, although it uses a JST connector rather than an EC2 connector.

In the front of the aircraft there is a 600TVL CMOS camera, directly above the front LED lights. The camera’s angle of view is adjustable from -10 degrees to +45 degrees, and it is protected by red transparent plastic.The 5.8GHz linear antenna is located on the back of the drone and is protected by a black shrink wrap cover. After disassembling the Walkera 110, we found that the FPV (first-person view) antenna is connected to the VTX (video transmitter) via a U.FL/IPX connector, which means a trefoil antenna upgrade is possible.

Under the drone’s belly, there is a three-pin connector for the external SBUS (servo bus) radio, and the hole for the SBUS/PPM (pulse width modulation) switch, where the external Walkera receiver connects to the PPM pin.

The Walkera Rodeo 110 camera and FPV review:

As mentioned earlier, the camera’s angle can be manually adjusted to suit your flying style. The camera uses a wireless video transmitter TX5836 for the US version and TX5837 for the European version, both operating at 5.8 GHz.

By default, the European version has only 25 milliwatts of broadcast power, but if you need a longer range, you can switch to 200 milliwatts using the power button (located on the top of the Rodeo 110 next to the micro DIP switches) for 30 seconds.Unfortunately, the camera on my drone could have provided better image quality during flights. The video stream seemed blurry and the light sensitivity was not up to par. In the future, I plan to replace the current FPV camera with a higher-quality one in order to improve the functionality of my FPV flights.

Connecting the Walkera 110 drone to the Devo 7 controller was a straightforward process that only took a few minutes. Firstly, ensure that the Fixed ID is set to “None”. Then, power on the drone and connect the battery. Once the binding process has been completed successfully, the buzzer should stop making the annoying “BB” noise.

If you’re trying to establish a DEVO connection with the Rodeo 110 using the DEVO protocol, please do not set it to “TX”.

Here’s a brief review of the Walkera Rodeo 110:

– Three flight modes available: STABILIZED (fully stable, no overturns or rolls), BETWEEN (partially stable, allows for rolling and tilting), and OFF (no stabilization).

– The Rodeo 110 is a high-speed drone with excellent performance and stability.

– It’s recommended to use a high-quality FPV camera for optimal image quality and flight experience.”ADVANCED” aka Rate or Acro (no weather).

For DEVO 7, you can switch between operating modes using the “Mix” switch. If you are a beginner pilot, do not switch to advanced mode!

To start the engine, move the throttle valve (left mode 2) to the leftmost position. To block the motors, move the same stick all the way to the right.

The angular mode works perfectly. The drone is very stable and responsive, but not too fast. It has a 2-second Li-Po battery life. In the middle protocol, you can roll in any direction, but be careful, it doesn’t behave like a toy ATV.

You get about 7 minutes of playtime. When the battery is nearly empty, the built-in buzzer sounds. From then on, you have about a minute to land safely.

Why should you buy this drone?

– Price-quality ratio

– Build quality

– Camera and first-person view

– Summer features

– Flight time: 4 minutes

Verdict: It may not be the fastest racing drone, but flying it is a lot of fun!Although the frame is made from carbon fiber with a thickness of only 2 millimeters, it withstands impacts well without causing serious damage. After several flights, my only disappointment was the poor camera image quality. The camera could have been sharper.

With coupon code “WR110” you can get the Rodeo 110 at a 10% discount. (Options are available for EU and USA customers.) For a longer-lasting experience, I recommend adding at least one extra part to your order.

What I liked:

– The micro-size makes it suitable for both adults and outdoor use.

– Well-built, mainly made from carbon fiber.

– Multiple flight modes.

– Oral amounts.

– BNF and RTF options.

– Availability of spare parts.

What didn’t impress me:

– Propeller protection not included.

– Closed BetaFlight firmware.

– No telemetry or OSD.
