Dear all,

Today my tello have several anomali, starting Said low batt after Flight 3 minutes, in fact battery just fully charged, then when I test with my skyrc it Said 4.05v and then put again in tello it show about 2/3 full.

I fly it about 2 minutes and suddenly it dropped from sky just like disconnected battery.

Test it again and it still more half full then it shorter period, followed Said error 13 in handheld.

Di anyone know what it’s mean ? Battery more than 1/3 full now.

Thank you

Im having exactly the same problem as you. Is there a way to check the battery health?

how many flights have you done? And do you always fly to 0%? Storing a battery fully charged is not recommended.

Probably a dodgy battery or your usb charger is not putting out a minimum of 1.5 amps.

I’ve got a 3 way portable hub charger, ideal for my up coming holiday🙂

I had 2 falls now. No error code or any kind. Tello just shut down mid hover with no commands from control. Each time I can restart and fly immediately again. Ryze told me to not charge under amperage. BS, I could charge the batteries to full no probs.

Time to replace your battery.

odd. I flew my 4 batteries less than a months say less than 10 cycles each battery. It shouldn't be the issue. A note on battery health. Worn out battery tends to charge up quickly and discharge quickly. Regardless how new mine are, I am going to time the empty to full charge time.

There probably some corrosion in battery contact? If all your battery (assume all original) behave like that,then you need open the white plastic hood on quad and check connector on it.

Cool will have a look when it is done charging although I can't confirm if it is only one battery acting up.

I inspected the contacts in the drone and also the contact on the battery that had the fall. They are all quite golden and shiny. Nothing looks corroded.
