I used kobwa which is sold under many names as well, and xiaomi 2. Both will get you 400ft easily. Heck I even got 330ft on iphone control alone but that was interference free condition and the video feed near 330ft was almost stopped. Like I had control only.Hi Guorium: any particular wifi repeater? Tks
U could probably. Though I flew with iphone x alone, cell and bt turned off. You should connect to t1 last so it sees the wifi signal from tello and avoids that channel to minimize interference. My flight was 4m high too. Too much height degrades signal. I flew over a football field with no wind that day. I would not recommend going that far without a repeater as it is just pointless unless you are testing range.
Yeah that is xiaomi two extender. It is decent and widely available. If you want something with better signal strength try to get this kobwa extender. Sold under different names but all look the same. Probably perform the same...Great info. Tks. Is this one? 1.- WiFi Range Extender, Xiaomi WiFi Repeater 2 WiFi Signal Booster Universal WiFi Amplifier 300Mbps 802.11n Wireless USB WiFi Extenders Signal Booster (White) US$ 12=? on Amazon---Same as this 2.- "Anbee Tello WiFi Range Extender, Xiaomi WiFi Repeater 2 Amplifier Universal Wi-Fi Extender 300Mbps 802.11n Wireless WiFi Signal Extender for Tello and Tello EDU Drone US$13 also Amazon
Never used it but many do praise it so worth trying if you are on android system. Yes it gets power from usb port.Tks Guorium: I suppose the USB is for charging purposes? These extenders should work on rechargeable batteries, right? And on a different matter, what's your experience with software other than Tello's, like Volatello and the like? (I'm glad to have a personal trainer with you, JA!)
Any 5V USB power outlet will do. Most people choose mobile powerbank. A small one like 2500mAh that I use will power the repeater for many hours.I didn't mean "power from USB" but powered from a rechargeable battery which is recharged via USB; is this correct? I suppose the extender is located midway between you and the intended maximum (extended) distance, which most likely is a place with no electrical energy to plug the extender. Tks for your patience.
