Sorry to hear that, hope the new ones get there soon.

I need to go ahead and order a set for myself, have one that seems to be going bad... it's a little 'stiffer' than the others when you flick it with a finger, and stops spinning before the others after landing.

For now, it flies ok but I know it's just a matter of time.
Mine doesnt even rotate anymore, It had some rough landings.

Be careful...I had a failing motor and lost my Tello. Tello shot straight up, full throttle, spinning full yaw, all the way to 705ft.+ altitude and I lost signal. I must have broken the altitude record! :(

Ive already lost one due to some bad decisions, flying far with some tricky wind gusts. I later realized that low battery on the Phone makes the stream delay for a couple of seconds, couldn't head it Home before tellos battery ran out and auto landing kicked in. It must be on top of a building or something. This tello felt from the second floor, I was in vr Mode and hit the side of a Window when I flying Through it. I think I can replace it, Ive bought a soldering Iron a couple of months ago because sooner or later this was going to happen.

Congratulations !

It a great app!!

The only thing I wish here is the tello battery could run longer.

All the best

Best Regards,

Hello,

Would you be so kind and help me with this problem.
I am trying to display the video on my android app. I have been able to send the commands and receive the state of the Dji Tello drone but I am having issues to display the video on my android app. I have decided to use OpenCV to do decoding from H.264, but I still do not have success. Please see a glance of what I tried to do.

How to display video from a UDP socket using OpenCV in Android? (DjiTello)
I am trying to get the video that is streamed from the drone Dji Tello. It streams through a UDP socket on IP address 0.0.0.0 and on port 11111. I am trying to display the video on a surfaceview, ...

How could I accomplish this?

Hello,

short comeback to original app.

I was just thinking about extension of boomerang AP.
Could it be possible to add an option in boomerang menu (or dronie, I´m not sure if return could be precise) to choose Circle beside 360?

Sample case.
I already begun mountain biking season and I would like to have Tello with me. It would be great to have some nice shot once our group reaches top of the hill. Dronie and boomerang has great results, but cirling around group of cyclists is more cool. Of course there is standard way set POI and adjust circle.
Combine boomerang or dronie with circle would simplify drone control and I think it should be looking great.
I believe there is a lot of other chances to use this.

Thank you

Sagvan

while the function itself is possible I doubt you will have fun with TelloFpf's APs on mountain tops. The VPS doesn't like steep terrain and VPS positions may be off quite a bit. That would render APs inaccurate or useless.
I think you will have to use manual control and be prepared for VPS fails

Volate!Io , you have really made the best software for the Tello ,

i wonder if its possible to :

Software Suggestion :

-Get live streaming or snap shots or data from the downward camera and integrated in the software.
- Gesture recognition option , for example wave to take snapshot or anything
- Mission Planner , draw a plan then the drone goes and comes back by itself.
- Face Recognition , smile to take photo
- Add Compass , showing orientation of drone in air.
-Gyroscope info display to show axis of rotation and inclination.
- Change of Home location .

i know this is a Tello and if i want all these options its already found in other models
But Just trying to make more perfect .

Thank you !

Hi there,

thanks for the suggestions.
#1 downward camera is inaccessible
#2 I will look into this, but this requires Computer Vision libraries. Complex & heavy compared towhat the app uses right now. But its on the list
#3 Same here but I doubt the stream resolution is good enough for reliable smile recognition
#4 Part of the upcoming vGPS function, but requires compatible phone and additional synch steps (tello itself does not have a compass)
#5 Thats what the bird in the screen center is for
#6 Just long press the home button

Cheers

Interesting ... phone with which specifications to be compatible with VGPS?
You need an accurate compass. Some (older) low budget phones may not have the required compass or may be too inaccurate to produce acceptable results. Some may have a magnetic flip cover or case which affects compass accuracy.

Thanks for the reply, on this I think I have no problems with my Samsung Note 3 Neo device that I use exclusively with Tello!
Otherwise I switch to my personal device Samsung A7 (2018)

That sounds very counter-intuitive. You'd have to turn yourself 180deg if you want to turn tello 180 deg. I may give this a try but it sounds cumbersome at best.

Yes, of course I have than turn myself for 180 deg. But 45deg will be enough too.
At least it will give a verry cool real-live- Flying Experience 👍👍👍

You are looking for head tracking, right?
That is something i wanted to try for some time. Should be possible now with headless mode supported

But flight direction and head direction should be decoupled or it will be an awkward experience

Hm, but thats what I had in mind: Flying in the direction i look. Headless-wise could be much more difficult, because if you fly in a direction you dont look could be dangerous.
It Max be is possible by using gyroscope Data?
And it should be possible to enable/disable this Option.
