Hi, i think a good way would be to connect a buzzer to the tello (look at the "vifly finder" in google). That buzzer start to make an alarm when the battery is empty (it is using his own battery). I am not sure but i presume it could be plugged like in the picture bellow...

Maybe an other and easy solution would to try a bluetooth tracker (for exemple, look at the chipolo tracker on google). They indicate that you can localize it at 60 meters max.

I would be interesting to know if it could work too. When we do FPV, it is sometimes hard to find the tello in heigh grass, even if it is not far...

I'm on my second also :(... I tried the "TrackR" but it interferes w/ Wifi AND the T1D controller...at random...not good. I hope a good solution is found for hard to find Tellos!

If you want no plug and an autonomous buzzer, the "DroneKeeper micro" seems to be great too. It buzzs when it detects no move during 30 seconds. It is using his own battery only. But it is expensive !
