Bought a used Tello of ebay. Loving it!

First question is how to improve wind performance? I was in ~15kmh wind today and on slow mod it drifted away only 2m up. Luckily landed it on the roof safely and got the ladder out.

Its my understanding that taking prop guards off and being in fast mode will help greatly, but are there any other tips? Maybe weight increase or third party propellers? (apart from wifi extender)
Next up is to get more comfortable in slow mode (already bought telloFPV), and then moving up to high altidude with wifi extender. Looks like it's gonna be a fun few weeks!

Welcome @scottm3

In TelloFPV's Main settings, set the 'Max attitude' angle to 25 degrees

I have my (PS3) controller mapped to the L1 button which switches the Tello from Video to Sport (Fast) mode on the fly.

In those gusts of wind instances, I switch to Sport mode (and ascend > 2m, if necessary) which puts the attitude angle at the max, which most of the time, helps to combat the wind.
