    Should I buy demo batteries?

    Like most things, you get what you pay for. I'd proceed with caution. But YMMV.

    Added Camera/xmiter and LED lights

    I found something at my hobby shop-it's an E-flite RFLA700UM "charger plug adapter EFL" which goes from the white plug to a pair of banana jacks so I can charge the battery. Now all I need is an adapter to go from the battery plug to the JST plug that's on the camera/VTX.

    Added Camera/xmiter and LED lights

    It's an Eflite 2S 7.4V 280 mAh lipo, PN# EFL82802S30. It's got a very tiny white 3 conductor balance plug, but the plug's smaller than anything I currently have to mate up with. I'll swing my my local hobby shop and see if they have anything that I can use. If not, then it's time to troll the...

    Added Camera/xmiter and LED lights

    Okay..got the camera and the lipo (this one came from Eflite/Horizon) and it looks like the combo will fit beautifully. Now all I have to do is figure out how to come up with a connector that will match up with the insanely tiny white balance connector on the lipo. None of my chargers will mate...

    [Solved] Tello not starting, not charging, blinking blue light

    I didn't time the flights (basically, hovering in place fighting the wind). If I had to guess, I'd say 6-7 minutes. But that gives me an excuse to charge them up again and try it tomorrow. When I do I'll report back.

    [Solved] Tello not starting, not charging, blinking blue light

    Thanks...by the way, just for fun, in spite of the fact that my Tello LED never stopped blinking while charging, I took the bird up for a couple of flights. The battery indicator on the app showed full charge, and the Tello flew just fine. I was only able to test 2 of my 3 lipos, but I imagine...

    [Solved] Tello not starting, not charging, blinking blue light

    This brings up another question-where are folks going to buy replacement batteries? Who's got the best pricing out there?

    [Solved] Tello not starting, not charging, blinking blue light

    You may be right-time to get some new lipos, I guess. Oh well, live and learn!

    [Solved] Tello not starting, not charging, blinking blue light

    I seem to be having the same issue. I decided to dust off my Tello and start flying it again. I'm using an external charger to charge up my lipos. Either I've let the batteries die on me (none of them had been used for the better part of 6-8 months) or something else is going on. The LED is blue...

    Thanks very much! I’ll be ordering the parts this week.

    Added Camera/xmiter and LED lights

    Where did you buy the camera from? And what size 2S battery did you get? Looks like a neat, and relatively painless mod. I love the drone, but hate the latency I get when using wifi for video.

    Using wireless controllers

    The one problem I have is that the Tello FPV app is only for Android devices..if you don't have one of those, you're SOL!

    Internal power feed 3.6v for external camera

    Great idea-I too would love to have this information, if somebody's kind enough to provide it. I, for one, am fed up with the video lag and would like to use the 5.8 ghz googles I already have (and, IMHO, beat the hell out of using my iPhone 6+).

    My long range fpv tello kit

    Thanks for posting..for those of us that would like to try something similar, can you post a parts list and where you got them? I especially like the idea of using a stand alone 5.8 ghz camera/tx combo since the lag (at least for me) on 2.4 is at times intolerable.
