I just bought a Gamesir T1D. Here in the Philippines it is available at the DJI store. You can find online on Amazon. Please remember that the Gamesir T1D can only be used on the Tello, and cannot be used to play games on your iPhone. What this means is the pairing with the controller is done within the Tello App and not through iOS Bluetooth Settings.

I'm using parrot flypad with tello fpv. Tried gamepads, but sticks are better.

I just got the Tello yesterday and was very disappointed to find that the Xbox One controller didnt work. The second most popular controller on the planet not supported seems mental.

Anyway,

I bought Tello FPV and tried with that and it works perfectly. Soooo much better with a controller than trying to use the screen.

I have no idea why the official app doesnt work, seems ridiculous to me but there you go.

TLDR If you have an xbox controller buy Tello FPV, much cheaper than buying a new controller.

Ryze (DJI) obviously collaborated with Gamesir, re: the T1d, to coerce people into thinking that was the best/only controller.

Even if you don't have an Xbox controller, Tellofpv is far superior to the OEM app.

For their own sake, I just wish people would come here and research first before investing money in a sub-par controller or being disappointed that a controller they already own ' doesn't work'

Today I tried using PS4 BT connection to iPhone 6S+. Since it works, I tried controlling Tello from Tello App and it worked.

Is there any way to calibrate a controller?

I using tello fpv when I move the sticks 50% of their travel in any direction, they input the whole 100% movement. This causes the device to be oversensitive. I tried adjusting the settings but seems like it needs to be calibrated first. 50%ish percent of phisical travel inputs 100% of movement.

I'm using android, genetic bluetooh controller.

Hello everyone.

What is the best controller for an iphone 5s? (I just ordered a gamesir, I hope it works. The gamevices seem to only support from iphone 6 and later)

If I picked up a cheap android phone, just for the third party apps, what would you recommend?

A Samsung A6 would also do a good job.

Tello, Tals, and Drone Blocks are all on Google Play.
What third party apps do you wish to install?
