Hello 2 all! After i flashed the update, in two times the tello had lost connection to the smartphone controller yesterday. It stands still in the air and no reconnect was possible. In both cases i had to wait since the battery was empty and than it landed. Hasn`t there been a failsafe protection before, in case of loosing the connection and the drone lands immedately? Have had ugly feelings in that situation...
I updated this weekend to new firmware 01.04.88.01

Fortunately, no disconnection isue happend to me. If true, I would prefer new behaviour you described, at least you have plenty of time to try a reconnection. Imagine you are flying over water or trees and Tello start an autolanding, that will end into a crash.

By the way, as others, I noticed better control under strong winds at low altitude.

Raul.

failsafe should kick in 50s after lose of connection. It does not really land too, just hover 30cm above a surface
