I thought it was such a minor release that its not really worth the message, but thanks anyway!
Actually its not a beta but a production release. With such a small change I felt brave enough to push it directly to production without going through beta test
Ok., thanks ;)

By the way, Is there any way to differentiate a beta release of a production release ?

No, you can't. Even I can't. There is no difference in the app, no matter if it came in via beta testing or production release. Its just a matter of distribution channels, but the end product is the same


During early beta testing I add a few flags to the beta version so the app shows my beta test message and makes sure that beta test versions stop to function after a while, but that is optional and not present in later beta & production releases.

Good day.
I want to buy your application, but in Russia it is not available in Google play! How do I make a purchase?

Volate!lo, app's creator, wrote this a few days ago:

These devices are compatible. But Russia is disabled completely. Play store wrongly lists the app as available in Russia but incompatible with your devices.

...

The Russian market for TelloFpv is too small to justify localization. I sold fewer licenses in Russia than in Venezuela which is already a tiny market. So while I am sorry for a few individuals I think that protecting the app from bad ratings is more important than the 50 or so licenses I would sell there.

So the only thing you can use is the free demo version. Sorry.

There is already an option in the settings to hide the onscreens when not in use.
Or do you mean to completely disable them?
Completly disable, cause i use a T1s and it toggles between Student(onscreen) and Master Control.
Strange , perhaps i make a mistake in my configuration :(

Edit:
Okay, my fault. Wrong config.
Sorry for disturbing.

Hi,

I keep testing v1.2k and everything works perfect: Screen adjust for notch area and rounded corners it's ok, video recordings are cristal clear, post-flight route analysis over Google Earth is a really a cool feature, vGPS is pretty accurate and calibration is an easy to do procedure once you get used to it.

Only a minor drawback discovered into vGPS calibration screen. It seems compass rose numbered degress not correcty shown and left shifted.

June release with no bottom numbered degrees and left shifted:
june version bad.jpg

For reference, numbered degrees correctly shown and centered into old April release:
april version old phone.jpg

I'm afraid it could be due to my new smartphone hardware. It carries a wide screen 19.5:9 ratio and a dual camera (dual-camera setup consisting of a 16MP main snapper with f/1.7 and a secondary ultra wide-angle 5MP f/2.2 lens ). This issue It is not a problem for me as long as it does not influence calibration procedure.

I would like to know @volate!lo opinion.

All the best

Raul.

Hi Raul,

this is just a layout issue caused by your phone's resolution without any side effects.
The compass rose was just a fun visualization because the vGPS screen looked so boring. I already spent way too much time on this so maybe I should just remove it in a future release.

Thanks for continued testing & reporting any issues found!

Cheers

Hello Volate!lo,

Would it be possible to have a dumb viewer mode on a second device?
I know there is master and student modes, but I'd love to have a second copy of the app running on a tablet to allow my daughter to view what I'm seeing inside my headset. I don't want her to be able to do any control actions though, just view.
It's no big deal, and I'm sure you have lots on with the app anyway, but I thought I'd ask.
It's a great app, has transformed the hobby for me at a very reasonable cost, I'm very grateful!
Thanks!

Does anyone use the Samsung Gear VR headset for FPV flying? I've searched past posts but it's still not clear whether the Gear VR headsets work OK with TelloFPV. I know the headsets are mainly designed to work in their own Oculus based ecosystem. Failing that, any recommendations for a simple VR headset that works over glasses (or has built in dipotre adjustment)?

You have to disable the VR launcher. I remember someone in the FB group posted a link to some (paid) app that can disable it. Or you have to modify the goggle hardware (remove the USB plug).

Or just get some traditional VR headset, in that case just go by test reports and comparisons available on the net.

Breakthrough!

I now have TelloFpv running on one phone, and a special "viewer-only" version on another phone. I haven't measured latency yet but does not seem to have a tremendously negative effect.


Control works only through the main phone running TelloFpv. Both master & student controllers have to be connected to this device. The TelloFpv-Viewer app shows video, telemetry including home position indicator, and a couple of messages that are brokered by Tello (like handland timers and most warnings).
A few things will not be shown on the viewer: the red/green indicators for Video / Sport mode and active controller, autopilot messages, maybe a few more things I haven't thought of yet.


The viewer and main phone both can be put into normal or VR mode independently. So it would be possible to use TelloFpv on the phone in your hands for control, and use another phone with the viewer in the VR goggles. Or use the main phone in VR mode in your goggles, and use a tablet running the viewer for some audience. Or fly with your main phone and let your kids / wife / SO passively enjoy the flight with VR goggles.
All kinds of combinations and use cases are possible.


TelloFpv viewer is completely passive, that is you can't fly Tello with it, can't connect a controller, or trigger any functions or autopilots. The only "function" it will offer is screen recording.


I will need a few days to iron the bugs out, and customize the layout for the TelloFpv Viewer app. So there will be a release in the next few days for the main app, and a new separate Viewer App.

Any smart ideas for the name of the viewer app version? Just TelloFpv Viewer? TelloFpv Slave? TelloFpv Monitor?

Hey!
¿Why spend a lot on a Phanthom 4 Pro V2 with OcuSync, if you can fly and monitor with Tello and Tello FPV?
Dear Volate!lo...
You are turnig, from excellent to Fantastic!
