Hi, welcome to the 203 club, over the past 4 months or so, I’ve returned 3 Tello’s for the same reason. I also own various DJI drones as well as many hobby ones, when I heard about The Tello, I was excited because of its size and stability to fly indoors.I agree it is a brick in its current condition. It is just so much fun to fly around inside the house. I have a Spark a Mavic Pro and 2 Phantom 3's but they are not really good for indoors. I would fly the Tello almost every day. I did put the prop guards on the Spark yesterday and flew it in the house but it is very noisy compared to the Tello. I hope I can get a warranty repair or replacement. soon
With all three drones I’ve only run OEM, I’m not even sure you can buy aftermarket batteries for it yet , but that’s a different discussion.
Amazon was terrific, they replaced the first one, refunded for the other 2, which I had to reinvest in the Tello because I’ve already purchased 5 batteries, chargers a carrying case, and a useless app.
I was in touch with Ryze support via chat for each one and although they were very polite their efforts were useless.
As everyone knows the code refers to a non Ryze battery,, but that’s obviously not true it must cover other firmware issues.
Anyways when I fly this one I’m tense, just waiting for the ball to drop again.
I like the concept of the tello but I should of waited for Tello 2.0
