From reading this thread, it definitely sounds like Android users are having the wide range of experiences with the Tello - some good, but some bad (and really bad). The Apple side seems to be a lot more consistent.

Are most of you upgrading the Tello to the latest version of firmware when the app prompts you to, or are you pressing "Cancel" to stay on the original version? Things are working really well for me on the original version.
I have the latest version and it works fine on my Droid Turbo. Except for the video which is still totally useless but that's my phone compatibility. Two things I noticed with the upgrade: One is the auto-land profile changed. It now descends quickly to about 3 feet then slows to land. I like that feature. Also, Scratch and Drone Blocks both work now. I prefer DB because I don't have to add a 3 second pause between commands for it to follow the program. And it's just for drones so there isn't all the extraneous stuff I won't use.
I just ordered the new T1D controller from DJI. Hopefully it will actually work so I can do some real flying.

Anyone come across a Tello case that has space for a controller like the T1D?

No but there are nice compact cases for the Gamesir and for the Tello individually. Probably easier to throw in a bag.

My Tello lived for only 24 hours.
After a little crash at home a motor is damaged.
How to change it without destroying the rest? I don't undertand if I have to remove it from the bottom (it closed by a gum landing protection) or from the up.
Thank you

Removed the gum protection.
Desoldered the damaged motor.
Soldered a generic 8520 motor.
It works ;-)

Tello Video Problems


Hello, I just got the Tello today and love it but it only saves the videos sometimes. I checked it 3 times to make sure it was recording and it was but only show one of the 3 videos. Why?

Just noticed a couple of variations of this case appeared on Amazon.

Did you remember to stop the recording before powering off the drone?

Well, you'll have more options weeks later:

It flies well also with the temporary motor as you can see in my programming test

Now I have only the black and white issue. I can take color photos but the video is black and with with p9 lite and p10 lite. They are both not supported mobile phones right now :-(

This is very strange, because i use the P9 lite, and it is flawless in video and photos.

Sorry, I have a P8 lite and a p10 lite and both have the B&W issue.
It's not a real black and white because I can see some colors sometimes
Here is an example

This is just a preliminary idea so I haven't disassembled the Tello to see how we might connect the card reader to the logic board. If this is successful then we could see a marked improvement in video quality since we'd have the ability to use uncompressed video direct from camera.

Unfortunately I am much better at electronic building than programming and I know this will require a hefty modification to the Tello firmware.

Any helpful comments are appreciated. I'd love to get this done and since Ryze seems pretty willing to provide us with programming and tinkering options maybe they'd release a more comprehensive SDK if we ask nicely?
In current form... not gonna happen, even with the hacking scene that is developing. Tello is controlled my Movidius VPU, and the compiler kit to the VPU is tightly held only by vetted companies.

Modding Tello is currently territory that most are not going to head into. None the less, this is the status of the scene.
