Join me in this thread and share your unique experiences with the Tello. I have a Mavic and you all know its capabilities. But this evening I went out on my four-wheeler with my Tello. I don't have a case yet so I threw it in a hat, then into the front basket and off I went with my dog behind me on the seat. We stopped at about 4 places to launch the Tello. So easy, just connect and throw it up. In my evening excursion it never touched the ground. I read on one thread that if you grab it and turn it sideways the motors shut off. I tried that and it worked once when changing locations. The little Tello struggled in some places where it was too breezy but I managed to get the quick photos I needed when I raised it up. In other words, I rode out to get some nice photos and I succeeded. Because each "shoot" was short my battery lasted me on the little trip. Below are some examples. I didn't get Tello very high due to the breeze but the little bird was steady enough to get some nice shots. Around my house we call it the "baby drone". There are differences between drones. The large ones have their own characteristics. The medium ones have theirs. Now we have this "little guy" and it has its own little nitch, a quick to launch little flying camera that takes great photos, adequate videos and is a joy to fly. (Now where in the hell are those extra batteries we need?) So what has been your unique experience so far?
