Hi there new to tello but have experience with Mavics and P4P. Quick question here: I just bought this Tello for my grandsons first drone ( although I may get one for me now lol) and was wondering if I am able to switch easily from one Phone to another phone as he will have to use mine or one of his parents phones to fly and no telling who he will be with. Kind of a process with remotes. Hoping it can be as simple as signing into to app and wifi connection.

thanks in advance

Press and hold "A" on the T1s and at the same time press the power button to power it on.

Open Controller settings page of TelloFpv and select the gamesir controller as "Student"

Sorry but I can't help with the Ryze Tello app as the Ryze app doesn't work on my phone due to Android 12.

I have tried and does not work. Maybe I am misunderstanding to "student" selection. I see "student" but when selected it only show me "on screen" not sure what to do with that

From memory (haven't used that app for years):
Press X button while powering up the controller
Open Tello app
Open settings
Open BT controller settings
The controller should show up


Just for the records: TelloFpv uses standard play store licensing. So if you have a family group set up in play store anyone in that group can use the app.

Returning to my Tello after years and would like to try the iPhone now rather than Android. Is the T1S the preferred controller and can it be used in a wired mode or is that only possible on Android? If it must be used with Bluetooth, does this cause any interference with the Tello?

I see more and more people get back to tello or downsize from larger drones. Sales seem to rise significantly (app downloads are steadily increasing since last year)
I guess related to all the regulations getting stricter


Anyway to your question:
iOS system only supports a selected hand full of wired controllers. Have to be MFi certified, that is mostly gamevice.
T1s and iOS is Bluetooth only and cones with interference. How bad this is? Some care some don't

Can you perhaps recommend a particular MFI certified controller? I have been using the PS4 controller wired to an Android and I would like to switch to the iPhone (for convenience) but I don't want to give up the wired controller.
