T1D is the one recomended by Ryze Robotics. You can also use Octopus if you own an Android device and use any bluetooth controller. I personally use a Steelseries Stratus XL.

I beleive that Ryze or DJI did that in bad faith to make more money. Any controller can get the job done. Why limit the app with that specific controller?

I decided to give this solution a go being as I already owned a Stratus XL. It's possible I missed something in the settings for the Octopus app that could have improved my experience but for me there was SO much lag I nearly crashed my brand new Tello! All that lag seemed to defeat the purpose of using a dedicated controller in the first place. A few minutes of that frustration had me running back into the arms of the Tello app for flight control!

My problem with the Octopus app was different. The command would not stick and I couldn't turn right or fly forwards. I bought aTello Pilot which support the Stratus XL native and now it works like a dream. If you are still experiencing lag, you can connect the controller directly to your android and fly via OTG. Works beautifully.
