Does anyone have any tips on taking sunrise/sunset photography with the Tello drone?

I did not try, but I think the main problems here are the same that with other cameras: white balance and dynamic range. AFAIK we cannot do anything about them, but setting EV may help to properly expose the part you are interested in, the sky I suppose, at expense of losing details in darker parts. Tello has some peculiarity here, for "0EV" value seems to mean "auto" rather than real 0, so just check full scale of EV setting to see what fits you best.
Then color correction may be needed in postprocessing, but at least you won't lose details in highlights.

Hi,
here an example in very low light conditions (2 minutes later it was dark).

Base: TelloFPV App V0.97 with EV car as JPG from 30m height and about 80m distance.
