I have tried the TelloFPV 1.5c update and I want to give my opinion, I thought that putting "Pano 360" in the flight options was going to be a 360 ° video and not a panoramic photo.

Now I would like to suggest some details that perhaps I would like to be added, although as I say it is only a "suggestion", I would like to add a mode that automatically takes photos with a variety of EV from lower to higher EV, since in The world of photography would help a lot.

This last suggestion may be the most difficult and impossible to do, I wish I could hide interface details so that Tello's image can be transmitted to networks such as Facebook, YouTube, etc.

I know that for that better I should look for a more advanced drone with those functions, but I think Tello could be squeezed with those functions, thanks greetings

The 360 does photos only if in photo mode. In video mode it does videos.


EAB / EV bracketing is not really feasible with Tello. Two problems:
First Tello can take a photo only after the previous has finished downloading. Taking 3 photos takes around 20s under ideal circumstances, but can be 3 minutes or more as well. So, the process is solw and Tello keeps moving a bit so I don't think it will be that useful.

Second: this could only work if the camera is using a manually selected EV. If its on EV +1 I could take a photo, change to +1.3 and take another, change to +0.7 and take a third. But, most users simply use "Auto". On that setting the camera selects the EV itself, and does not report back the current EV so I have no baseline to start from.
And not only that, the auto mode uses different EVs than what is available for manual selection: In a room with low light Auto creates a much brighter image than the highest EV that can be selected manually.

TelloFPV 1.5c tested yesterday. Excellent video, range and control. No flight issues at all, but...

I shooted a Photo Pano 360 and got TWO file folders into my android device: "Pano 360 2019-09-03 17-07-17" and "Pano 360 2019-09-03 17-07-17 level". I'm sure "Rotate and Crop to Level" photo setting is OFF.

Hi @Raul
Same here on 1.5c, got 2 folders with 10 photos in each...crop setting is off

First off Volatello thank you for this app, it's amazing, tried the beta version then purchased it.
I updated the app this past weekend, and used it earlier today, went to use the boomerang mode but didn't have the OK or Cancel buttons on the bottom of the settings to be able to set the Tello in motion, any ideas ?
Thanks again and keep up the great work.

sounds like enlarged system fonts... Or some rather small display. What phone are we talking about?

Hello

Today I tested Copilot app for the first time.

It worked great !

I safety teach my son flying Tello. He enjoyed a lot. Father and son joined by a thread ;)

This was our setup: Left phone is master (me), running TelloFPV. Master controls Tello using touchscreen.
Right side phone is student (my son), running Copilot app. Student drives tello using a physical controller attached master phone through OTG cable.

Great work, @volate!lo !

OK, I see. Seems like I need to make these dialogs scrollable...

My 2013 S4 mini has 540x960 and is the lowest resolution I can test on. My last update added a line for the trajectory, so the buttons are now gone

Your phone has a resolution of 480x852 which is extremely low. Recent phones have more like 20x the resolution.

Thats exactly how it was meant to be used (well, except that my original plans included a BT controller, but sadly most phones have bad interference using BT controllers). So now you need a long cable

Sorry to complicate things for you, if you could make it scrollable that would be great.
In the meantime is there a way I can downgrade the app to before you added the trajectory line, which version of the app would it be.

Hi again,

I have an Oculus Go and I was wondering if there is a way to sideload the tellofpv app that I have already purchased.

@volate!lo any comments on this one?

There is no way to downgrade apps in Google play so for the time being there is no solution.

Sideloading is not supported on any device. TelloFpv requires play store licensing or it won't work.
