You can do faceial & gesture stuff with the original Tello Edu in the same way. You just need to know how. This hasn't changed.

But the new one has a few cool changes in the SDK giving more control over video feed and supports large scale mission pads (like several meters large)

Saw these links in a couple of different places. Doesn't seem to be a way to buy one yet.
DJI releases more powerful Robomaster Tello Talent Drone - DroneDJ
RoboMaster TT - DJI
This new Tello has been out for awhile. it is not being sold in the USA, and the manual is only in Chinese. They a so are selling an extension kit to upgrade the older version Tello EDU. We have few of this kits, and may be willing to work with someone with the skills to use it. i.e. p0rgram with Arduino, etc. We are now working with a company Makerfire that has a similar EDU drone called LiteBee Wing and LiteBeeWing FM , but superior in many ways., especially for formation flying ( up to 10 drones ) You can find several of our videos on it on Youtube channel MECATX to include an unboxing.. Will attach a video file of the Tello Talent. DJI bought out RYZE, and is pairing the Tello TT with it's Robot, Robomaster. so support for the original Tello's is probably gone.

The Tello Talent documentation is available in plain english, at least I read the new SDK documentation yesterday.

They added quite a few things to the SDK, making the drone a bit more useful. Like large scale mission pads (5x5 meters) for better positioning. It seems that this is also an update for the Tello EDU, at least they keep referencing both the EDU and the TT in this context.

I don't think DJI bought out Ryze. Ryze never existed as a real company, it has always been just a letterbox in a DJI building. At least all paperwork I have ever seen indicates this (same names on FCC and patent files)

Thank you for the quick reply. is it being sold in the USA? Can you send a link to the English version of the manual. You are probably right about RYZE, but they seemed to ahve a better vision of the micro- drone market than DJI. We like the LibeBee Wing and LiteBee wing FM in that it uses Aruco markers rather than the mission pads. They have one that is 5 x 5 meters with many numbered markers. We do have one of the DJI large scale 5 x 5 mission pads. Aruco or similar markers can be printed and preproduced with ease as compared with the DJI mission pads. The DJI mission pads were more for the kids in a space theme. These large pads are being called carpets. We are learning to produce them in various sizes and materials, such as shower curtain and banner material for customized uses. you can see several videos' of these also on Youtube channel mecatx. Thank you for the dialog. Where re you located?

The new batch of announcements suggests that there will be new marketing focus areas for the TT version. Perhaps Amazon will even sell it eventually. I will buy one if they become available in the US.

Since you have already have your hands on the Tello Talent I have a couple of questions:
How well do the large scale mission maps / carpets work? Can tello recognize mission maps if the view to some parts of it is blocked ?

The Tello Talent documents include an SDK 3.0, which includes commands for different video resolutions, framerate, bitrates. Could be interesting.
Some documents mention that some functions work only for Tello Talent and Tello EDU supporting SDK 3.0. Have you ever tried SDK 3.0 on the current EDU models?

The documents mention that the expansion module has a dual 2.4/5.8 Ghz transmitter. This sounds like it can use 2.4gHz to talk to Tello, and 5.ghz to talk to the controlling PC or access point. This could make video transmission much more robust as the 5.8ghz isn't affected by bluetooth.

If I understand correctly the ESP plays man-in-the-middle.
So a remote app sends its commands to the ESP (using 5.8ghz) , which then forwards these to tello (using 2.4ghz or the usb isn't exactly clear to me).
Some documents speak about offline programming capability, so it seems tello can perform autonomous missions with the ESP being the controller.
Here is all documentation available:

Overall too complicated & expensive for the larger consumer market @260€ . Only good for well funded STEM courses.

I did just receive a pair of Tello TT's delivered to the US from DJI's online store. I plan to use them in a university course I am teaching on the Internet of Things. Took about 2 weeks from order to delivery via DHL.
