a bit more distance helps.
Tello can't stop quickly enough as you slow down, and once it's too close it can no longer identify you as a "person", and so it loses track.

I need to ask this. Does the phone have to be in landscape orientation for the tellome to work properly?

I noticed that when i was on my bike & the phone was in portrait orientation, the tello lost tracked & moved in a different direction.

Phone orientation doesn't matter.

Its more a question of identifying a person. Aritifical intelligence isn't that intelligent.
It uses recognition models that are trained using persons in different positions. People on a bike, just like people on a horse or with a huge backpack, may be harder to track than a normal walking person.

Ugh. That's a problem. But I've seen youtube videos of tello tracking people on a bike. May be i just have to test more.

Ive been tryong to make tello track me on my bike. With little success. It loses me after a few seconds. I've tried far distance & short distance tracking while biking slowly. Any ideas what I can do to improve tracking?

wear something that is easily recognizable. No dark clothes when riding on dark pavement.
Nothing that obscures your shape to no look human-like. No backpacks, no helmet...

It depends. If the overall shape looks like a human it can track you. As you can see in the video above thats not a problem with a person standing and walking. But once you obscure the shape by riding a bike it gets harder.

If the test says 0 fps then it's a codec issue. Most phones correctly selecta codec, others fail.
In that case connect to tello and try again.if it fails:Manually select a different codec in the settings, and try again. Find one codec that works.


If the phone says failed with low fps figures, then the phone is too slow.
