I'm saving up for a cheap 3d printer to mod my tello for exploring tunnels, abandoned buildings, and places that I can't access on foot due to legality or physical barriers. Here's what I think I'll need:

-On-board wifi extender, potentially combined with an on-ground extender to punch through concrete walls.

-Roll cage so tello always lands right side up after a crash, in case I can't get to it to flip it over.

-Much better battery to compensate for added weight and the need for longer flight time.

-Lights to increase flight stability in low light conditions.

I'm open to doing a major rebuild with a printed frame and just using tello for guts if I need to. What am I missing? What suggestions do you all have for parts? Is this even a feasible project?
