Hey everyone, greetings from Albuquerque New Mexico, This is the flying Chicano. Dudes this evening I was cruising my Tello. I got a prompt telling me that "Tello could not obtain current location ..Please land" before I could find a suitable position to land ..the drone took off at cruising speed and eventually came to a stop in a neighbor's yard 50 yards away...it would not respond to the controller or the phone, it just flew away. what, if any, ideas does anyone have in the matter? I have never experienced Tello behaving this way.

"Tello could not obtain current location ..Please land"
Did you have enough light? Tello's VPS needs light to work.

it would not respond to the controller or the phone
Lost wifi connection? Are there any other hotspots around your place thad could disturb the signal?
You also can try a wifi range extender to get a better and stronger connection.
