Do I need to return the drone?
Clearly some Codec trouble.No. It's probably just some misunderstanding between codecs in Tello app and your system. I have similar results with one of my devices (switching to video mode makes live view visible, though in grayscale), but two others work flawlessy. Try some other app -- what we have is aTello (free, quite simple but has everything needed to fly), aTello Pilot (paid, very good app) and TelloFPV (paid with free demo, very good app too, and under very active development); I bet the other apps won't show the problem.
So what's the problem? Forget the OEM Tello app, use Tellofpv it's MUCH better anyway.
Codec issues. Only way to fix is to use a 3rd party app.
Did you use a fairphone 2?Thanks very much for the tips . Got my first drone yesterday.
Want to use a drone high up in the mountains on longer hiking trips, but having no experience at all in drone flying I decided to learn first, and for that purpose bought the Tello.
But with my Moto G5plus the Tello App did'nt show live feed at camera, and at film mode the recording was blurred. With a Fairphone it worked fine.
With the Tello FPV app (the demo) also my Moto phone seems to be working properly.
Still tons of questions, but I'll first check out this forum. It's lots of fun (I have 3 batteries), and crashed only 6 times up to now . Some steering to learn. The Tello can take a lot.
