The Walkera Rodeo 150 is a backyard "racing" mini Quadcopter / drone that's a blast to fly. Mine has been hacked and upgraded with a minimOSD and addressable RGB LED's. But wait, there's more. Now it has Altitude Hold thanks to a cheap barometric sensor module. With the flick of a switch the Rodeo will remain at the current altitude. I also see the realtime altitude data (AGL feet) in my goggles via the minimOSD. I will admit that all the extra features I've added are useless for a serious FPV Racing drone. But I don't consider the Walkera Rodeo to be a professional race machine. It's a FPV backyard speeder that is equally ready for some casual exploring. Given it's dual personality I see nothing wrong with adding some bells and whistles to it. Besides, adding altitude hold to the Rodeo 150 seemed like a interesting challenge. And now that mine has it, I can report that it works great. I'll show how I did it. The Fine Print: It's not a beginner's mod. But simple enough for someone with good fine-pitch soldering skills to do without too much trouble.
