    I would like if somebody knows if it's ok to update the rodeo 150 firmware only with doing the TX. Do you need to do both RX and TX. Could I run into issues with TX if that isn't updated at the same time? Please help if possible. Thanks

    Do not touch the TX. It requires no update. It is a generic radio for all Walkera models.

    Just update the FW on the Model.

    The rodeo 150 has a SP racing F3 flight controller and when I go to walkera to download firmware. The firmware is in .txt format. Cleanflight is asking for .hex. When I change the extension from txt to hex still nothing works. Is there something wrong I am doing? Please help if possible.

    The F150 does not have an SP racing F3 flight controller. It has a proprietary FC that is similar.

    Do not load generic SP Racing F3 FW. You will brick your FC.

    The FW you require is in our Resources Tab at the top of our main page.

    Also only use Cleanflight version 1.2.0 it is also in our resources tab.

    The txt file is the configuration file that you need to load after you have loaded the FW.

    Cheers Brian

    I am understanding now why.

    I downloaded this from walkera site
    Rodeo 150 cleanflight firmware

    The firmware is in zip format. Do I need to extract to separate folder?

    When I plug cable into rodeo without battery there is a button at the bottom right that says
    " load firmware local"
    When I plug in battery and select connect I get to the main configure screen

    Where in cleanflight do I update firmware.

    Please help if possible

    I am sorry. I don't see the firmware link on the walkera forum. Where is the resources section?

    If you look at the top of our page you will see three tabs.

    Forums. Active Topics. and Resources.

    I also posted the links in my reply to you.

    Here is the specific link to the FW.

    fw-f150-original-manufacture-fw-and-settings.20

    Don't forget to install the correct version of cleanflight I posted the link to that as well.
