Hi, my advice would be for you to read this topic


many informations there.

The best is really to read and understand what is important for a controler, how it works and why do you need it. Some parameters are generals but some other are more personal (ergonomy, needs,...). Then you'll be able to formulate your own answer to your question.
We always pay "cutting corners" one day or an other, so the best is to not rush if not needed and acquire knowledge about what you own or plan to own.

cheers

We have several Tello's Most are used with the T1d controller, and they all seem to work, so far. We have not tried other ones. there is a good video on youtube of someone that found software that will make other kinds and models compatible with the Tello. it looked good on the video. A little more resarch will help. It does make flung the Tello better.

Android or IOS? I have phone with IOS. I decide to cancel my order and looking for something. Think about T1s also, but i think can't use with native Tello app. Anyway, thanks to all for answer and help. With this what i read here, i need to change phone:p:p but this i don't want to.

I started with the T1d but then changed to T1s to get rid of the bluetooth connection. It resulted in better video results, so I'd never go back to T1d for normal flights. I would only take into consideration for the now retired T1d for a second controller if I use student/teacher operations with volatello's "CoPilot" app for the convenience of having no disturbing cables. Here, high quality video results are not my first priority

I use a GameSir T1s with an OTG cable, so I can disable Bluetooth. From what I've read, on here, Bluetooth can cause more interference. I haven't had any issues with it. I also use Tello FPV app, which is fantastic. I velcro a cheat sheet with the button assignments, which I set (Bad memory). Good luck and have fun.

I have the iPhone 7 and have no problems. Great controller. Tello flys great with the controller in my opinion as you don’t have to trouble the phone whilst flying. It hooks up great with the Tello app. Good luck.

T1s with tellofpv ??
At the moment Tellofpv only works on android. Hopefully they will make it work with Apple. One way to do it is to buy a cheap android phone and get around it that way. Don’t forget the T1s is only a controller and does not need a app to work.
That’s what I plan to do as the Tellofpv app is very good. Good luck.

I'd return it and invest in Gamesir G4S, it has a USB wireless dongle that can connect to phone via a USB otg adaptor (sold separately) for low latency and reliable drone control minus the hassle of additional cords especially when using VR goggles for FPV

No problem. I had to research it as well so I hope it has helped you. As the T1s does the job. No fuss or hassle. I don’t need to use the Bluetooth. It just connects easily.

The T1s also has a wireless dongle supplied at the bottom. This is for games via pc.
