    Tello FPV app

    bhack , hearing aids - Apologize OFF SUBJECT. I too use hearing aids - for 20 years. None very good especially noisy environments. Last summer purchased Bose HearPhones, $499. AMAZING hearing aids. I can now hear better in noisy environments than most people, young or old (matured). Have not...

    Various Tello Lighting Mods. Downlights, top case light, floodlights

    SleepyRobo, thanks. I Appreciate the suggestion. Considered that a while back and ran into a snag. The voltage to arm the ViFly Finder needs to be a continuous voltage not an intermittent voltage as I suspect goes to the front light. I am guessing the enabling (continuous signal) for the front...

    Various Tello Lighting Mods. Downlights, top case light, floodlights

    DRN1, great info. Thanks. A couple of questions related to a current project of mine - implement ViFly Finder V2 on my Tello that will alarm when the Tello is lost and has not ejected its battery. 1. In your light mods when the lights are powered from the Tello's Micro USB port do the lights...

    Brainstorm: what we can install to Tello

    I have used the Tile Mate. Weight reduces flight time ~ 1 minute at most. With iPhone X, Td1, Mi and the Mate Velcro'd to underside seems to drop control at 100 ft distance and 10 ft altitude with 2 Wi-Fi bars on Tello app. Normally with same setup without Mate good to at least 200 ft. Also...

    Gamevice for iPhone

    Had the same problem fitting my iPhone X with glass protectors on both sides of the phone. Solved fit problem by loosening the four screw on each side of the Gamevice (8 screws total) just enough to allow the "thicker" iPhone to fit securely.

    Sensor problems or I do not know what problem is ...

    I can confirm flying near the ground (appx. <3 ft) will slow yaw, pitch and roll as if the Tello was in the "Slow" mode.

    Overheating at rest

    As several other members have suggested and also noted in the Half Chrome video a small fan sufficiently cools the Tello preventing over temperature shutdown. I purchased a small USB rechargeable fan from Amazon...

    01.04.78.01 firmware Mi Xiaomi repeater will not connect to Tello

    Thanks for all the help from the forum members. I have attached a procedure I created that explains connecting the Tello to the Mi Repeater 2. Therefore later on when I have problems connecting I can evert back to this procedure. An issue of senior memory. Steve.

    01.04.78.01 firmware Mi Xiaomi repeater will not connect to Tello

    Quakco, thanks. It is when I reconfigure the Mi at the end of the process (100%) I get the message Connection Error. Also at about the 25% mark the Mi flashing orange turns to solid blue. All of the Mi re-configure internet instruction indicate the light turns solid blue between 50% and 75%. I...

    01.04.78.01 firmware Mi Xiaomi repeater will not connect to Tello

    Ansia, thanks. I assume Reset Tello means with the Tello powered off; 1.Press and hold the power button until the Tello's light turns solid Red, 2. Open Tello app and connect Tello, and 3. go to system update and update Tello to the latest firmware. Correct? I found those instructions on this...
