I am a new Tello owner. I have had a few drones in the past, and all have been disasters. They are too fast, to twitchy, and not very stable. My hand eye coordination is not the best, and forget looking through a headset at this point. But I saw a video where you can program the Tello. This got me excited to give it a try. What I have found so far is even I have been successful in short flights. Using the Tello app, I was able to take off, fly around a little, and land. The Tello is a Great improvement for me. I am currently using a iphone 6S plus. I read that using a controller is even better but my interest is using a programming app so it takes my control out of the picture.
