Hi all, I was bored yesterday, so I decided to use an old Dbrand phone skin to make my Tello more stealthy :D
The end result is ok, I would give myself more material around the edges to work with, and most importantly would need to buy an exacto knife to be able to trim down the excess material more precisely, but for now it will do the job.

Flight time does not seem to be affected considering that I put maybe 2g of weight on top of it, but then again, this is just for fun who knows.

Secondly, I bought a wired ps4 controller and looked everywhere for a phone mount, none are compatible so I decided to make my own.

I took a plastic hanger, used a lighter to bend it to the correct shape and angle to fit my controller and I also took an old phone case I had laying around to use as a fixed way to hold the phone.

Roughened up the surfaces with a knife to give the glue a place to hold, and this is the end result, works for now. Until the glue fails and my phone ends up shattered on the ground but hell, had to create a solution since there were no compatible mounts to buy.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, none of the supported mounts ship to where I am from, so that is why I did not go that route, plus, I was eager to try it out and not having to wait a month shipping..

Nice work with the mount, hadn't considered making my own but as I can't find one for the wired logitech controller I have self-made is the way to go!

end game, I cant seem to get my ps4 controller to work. I run it to my phone with a OTG cable and it connect and everything. But when I go to tellofpv app and select it everything works except the right joystick. I cant remap it either and using other software to test the controller it has the same issue. I tried 4 different ps4 controllers. Im starting to wonder if its a bad cable or maybe my phone doesnt support it. I have the samsung A50

Ya I did a controller check app. A few different ones and same thing for all them. I'm starting to think it's a cable issue or my phone. I'll try a different phone
