The settings I listed (1&1) are for the most stable video but with low quality. For high quality video you need to experiment a bit. The Tellofpv manual (in help) does a great job of explaining these settings.

I'm really interested in your mod. Even I'm planning to buy another Xiaomi repeater ;)

I have a question for you: How do you configure both Repeaters for working together ?

Thanks a lot.

It took me a while to get my head around it lol had everything placed out with bits of paper next to them :)

It works in reverse.



Do the mod. (Any questions feel free to ask. Have just about have it written out, parts needed etc, how to) not hard to do at all.

Attach the Xiaomi to the drone.


WiFi =
SSID TELLO (6 digit identifier code)_plus
(Xiaomi mi WiFi 1)

Daisy chain the next repeater to connect to this SSID.

It becomes

SSID
SSID TELLO (6 digit identifier code)_plus_plus
(Xiaomi mi WiFi 2)


Connect with TELLO app to the
SSID TELLO (6 digit identifier code)_plus_plus
(Xiaomi mi WiFi 2)

Simple way to explain if you have one xiaomi mi configured already then use that to attach (physically) to the drone and set the second to link through WiFi to that one. Then always use the plus_plus WiFi connection in the app.

Hope this makes sense... :)

Was just testing the feed back and signal on TELLOfpv, didn't drop. Yet when connected to just the one xiaomi it was terrible.



Uploading YouTube now. So it's over to the YouTube conversion tool :( see ya in an hour lol

Correct me if I'm wrong but the tello will always report 90db back because it's referring to the connection to the repeater strapped to it's back.
There is no way to know how strong the link between the two repeaters is, apart from using a second phone with am Wi-Fi analyser app to monitor the signal strength of the tello repeater.

Dam your good, I didn't think of that. That explains why the dB didn't drop on the footage that I quickly took, well screen recorded, I just connected to the WiFi on the mi on the TELLO. The quality dropped but I didn't get a warning. So I turned it around. Will upload this footage too.

What's going to happen out of range, it will still lose connection to phone app. Does it auto land then?
