Brushless micro-scale quadcopters are as popular as ever, Walkera were desperate to join the action and so recently launched the new Rodeo 110, a smaller version of their successful Rodeo 150 model.

The price-tag of £169/$200 may put off some but this is unlike any other budget quadcopter that we have reviewed recently. The new Walkera Rodeo 110 is well constructed, has a premium feel but without compromising the requirement for it to be fairly lightweight.
During our review of the F210 and Rodeo 150 models, we commented that many of the components were proprietary, including even the flight controller software. Unfortunately the Rodeo 110 retains similar proprietary components but the flight test is key to whether these are critical to the success of this model.
BuzzFlyer.co.uk have kindly provided us with this model for review, they are a specialist in Walkera quadcopters and have in the past supplied the F210 and Rodeo 150 for review.
In the coming weeks we will be shooting a ‘Tips & Tricks’ video to improve the Rodeo 110, similar to the video that we shot for the Rodeo 150, watch this space.
