Man he must have *really* forced it in lol. It has a small latch which makes it really hard to put it in the wrong way.
He must have broken the latch. Hopefully not. The good news is that there's no way it made contact so no damage was made to the electronics or the battery itself

Don't feel bad. I'm over 50 and I managed to do it lol. Comes out easy once cover is off and like you said no damage...whew. Also be very careful not to insert the micro usb upside down. :)

Hey there is a new Tello APP "TelloFPV" on Google Play. It GREATLY enhances the capabilities of this drone. It has a Instructor-student mode for training beginners to fly. You can use 2 controllers simultainiously. You will be amazed at what your new Tello can do! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.volatello.tellofpv.demo&hl=en
Also a Wifi extender largely improves video quality and flight distance. I use the Xiaomi(around 10 bucks).
Make sure you new Tello has the most current firmware installed.
Happy flying! Merry Christmas!

Wow it looks promising! I'll try the demo and then I'll see if it's worth buying! Thanks

I have been beta testing for over a week. It will blow your mind. RTH is amazing! Exposure control from the controller...etc. etc. VR coming in a week or so! The developer is awesome and is adding the features us Tello pilots want! :)
