Hi.

After latest update i cannot i cannot fully controll my tello. up/down/forwart/backward/left/right working ok but left/right rotate is possible only few second after take off, them it stop working and randomly rotate itself.
I've done both calibration twice. Before the update everything was ok.

Welcome @WiruSSS

What did you update? Tello or your phone? Which app are you using? Virtual joysticks or physical controller?

Appears it does rotate but intermittent and struggling. Interference perhaps? Bluetooth off? Airplane Mode on?

I did update the drone via tello app. It’s possible to have these interferrenes only for this movement? i guess no. Looks like some algorithm is trying to correct the drone position but randomly.

Had forgotten to engage Airplane Mode at one point plus using virtual joysticks and struggled to control the Tello. Worth a try.

Otherwise:
  • Reflash the firmware again (possible corrupt download)
  • Perform a Center of Gravity calibration
  • Fresh + fully charged batteries?
  • Pitch of the propellers look correct?
  • Props and motors spin freely and stop at the same time?
  • Props not flushed up against the motor housing?
  • Motor shaft(s) not bent?
  • If using stock Ryze app + Android, try TelloFPV demo/full
