Hello there, fellow Tello drone pilots. I'm fairly new to the Tello Drones, got one for Christmas. We have 4 now. 3 still fly. One has a burned out motor. Flew it a lot. Simple fix. 2nd one, LOL, I put 60 ft into a tree. Full speed. CRACK!!!!! Right into the trunk.... Big, big tree...then it fell about 10 ft. Wedged between the branches, never to be seen again!!!! If you've ever crashed hard, you know that sound. As if the crack of the crash and the sickening sound of it falling wasn't bad enough, the worst sound was when it stopped, still 50 ft up in the tree.
It sat up there for a week, 2 rainstorms, high winds, even climbed up and then a pro tree guy went up, full climbing gear. NO LUCK!!!! Finally, after a week, plus buying #3, a big windstorm brought it down. After a week in the tree, 2 rainstorms, and looking for it, most of the daylight hours and then at night, it finally came down, we took a look at it, used some iso alcohol to clean the pitch off. Giant Douglas Fir, 85 ft tall, lots of pitch. LOL.... Except for a small dent in the yellow cover, NO damage, at all. New props, 2 blew off in the crash, which we found under the tree, started right up, the battery still works too. These things are awesome. I will post some videos soon.
