Gosh, I can't believe no one ever answered you here. Did you get an answer? My guess is that this would not be possible with an inexpensive controller like the GameSir T1d, already designed for the Tello exclusively. Also, I don't think the Bluetooth frequency at such low power, intended basically for just a few feet, would interfere with the WiFi longer range frequencies, in this case only 2.4 Ghz. 5.8 is only in bigger drones.Guys,
Is it possible to connect the Gamesir remote via wired to my phone, and therefore not use the Bluetooth. I think that will make the wifi connection a bit better?
Agreed. My T1s arrived yesterday and my OTG USB-C to micro USB arrived today. Plug and play with my Galaxy S9+. The phone basically thinks it's a mouse (HID device), so you need to map your buttons, but you can do this directly in the aTelloPilot app. There is no mapping function in the Tello app so you can't use the controller wired to fly the quad in that app unless you use something like Octopus, which requires far, far too many permissions for my comfort level.T1s with OTG cable works perfect with Tello for all devices android, or ios. I agree that the T1d is not the best choice out there.
T1s all the way for your son. The controls will make it so much easier for him to fly, it is very precise. Definitely get the OTG cable! I have never rooted any of my phones and I have tried many older androids with 4.0 firmware and higher on the Tello, they all work ok but so far my best results have been with android phones with 8.0 and up firmware. Hope that helps.This has been a very helpful post, thank you to all who have contributed. i can't tell you how many frustrating hours I've spent searching for answers on what controller to get.
I'm getting this for my son and want to be sure that what is under the Christmas tree actually works so he's not disappointed.
Sounds like the preferred method is the T1s with an OTG cable. Now I have read that Android phones will need to be rooted; is this actually the case? I have an old Nexus 5 that I was going to give him with it (wish i didn't need the phone at all) but want to make sure all this works...
I certainly didn't have to root my S9+, and I would assume that any version of Android that supports USB OTG wouldn't need to be rooted. Unfortunately I can't say with certainty what is the earliest version that supports OTG, but that shouldn't be too difficult to determine using our friend Google.Now I have read that Android phones will need to be rooted; is this actually the case?
I've used my T1s wired-OTG with an old Galaxy S3 phone running Android 4.4.2I can't say with certainty what is the earliest version that supports OTG
Thanks for the answer JasonMC.Work for Android device only via OTG cable but not with OEM Tello App. (work with aTelloPilot App)
OEM Tello App support BT connection only currently.
