Walkera H6 actually named “Voyager 3”, only a prototype

Walkera H6 actually named “Voyager 3”, only a prototype

German IT magazine heise.de reports from CES Las Vegas that the previously teased Walkera H6 was nowhere to be seen at Walkera’s booth – and was shown to them only on their request (German, Google translate).

According to Walkera, a communication problem with their american distributor led to the premature announcement, which was planned for end of January this year at the Toy Fare Nuernberg in Germany. Sadly, pricing and features are still secret until then, even though production is slated to begin “soon”.

Walkera H6 debut at CES, runs APM/Dronecode

Walkera H6 debut at CES, runs APM/Dronecode

Need more proof that APM and the Linux Foundation-backed Dronecode alliance is really taking off? Walkera is about to debut the H6, a fancy-looking high-end quadcopter with retractable landing gear. The design is reminiscent of the new DJI Inspire, though the construction uses a simpler landing gear mechanism instead.

No info on price or availability yet, though we expect this to be announced within the next day.

Stick around for more pictures after the break.

Breathe new life into your Walkera Transmitter with DeviationTX

Breathe new life into your Walkera Transmitter with DeviationTX

Do you have a Walkera Devention 6/7e/8/10 or 12 TX? Still using the original Walkera firmware? In that case you should head over to www.deviationtx.com and get the latest community-made firmware, which adds support for DSM2, DSMX, NineEagles (J6Pro), WLToys (FlySky), Hubsan and in the future, FrSky.

While some of the new protocols require the installation of extra hardware inside the transmitter, some work without any modifications – transforming the Devention transmitters into multi-functional beasts with a clean, powerful user interface. You can even switch the transmitter into “Mass storage mode”, which allows you to update bitmaps, labels, fonts and even copy model settings via windows explorer, just like on a USB stick.

Best of all: The complete firmware is Open Source!

Check out some screenshots of an upgraded Devo6 after the break.

Walkera Goggle Glasses suspiciously look like Hubsan

Walkera Goggle Glasses suspiciously look like Hubsan

Remember the Hubsan H510 FPV Goggles? The ones sold for around 100 bucks? Well now you can buy the same goggles, just Walkera-branded, for… $140 at ehirobo.com

Unless they seriously improved the resolution (which they haven’t) or improved the design (nope), not exactly a great deal. If you must absolutely have them, buy the cheaper Hubsan original.. Or better yet, save up for better FPV goggles.

Devention Devo 6 Update adds telemetry without hardware modification

The Devention Devo 6 Transmitter supports Telemetry out of the box. All you need to do is apply the latest upgrade by Walkera and bind to a compatible receiver with telemetry support, like the one built into the Mini-CP.

Bonus: The Mini-CP has the exact same flight setup as the Genius-CP, so you can just copy your existing model and pretty much fly right away.

Up until now getting a Transmitter with a color touch display set you back at least 2 grand. The Futaba 14MZ was the de-facto standard for this kind of extravaganza. But bling aside, a colorful touch display has another advantage: It allows for much more intuitive controls.

But who are we kidding? It looks cool too. But is cool enough to justify fumbling with a touchscreen? Find out in our in-depth review!
