Subject:Tello app incompatibilty with mobile phone Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A300FU model)


I own a Ryze Tello Drone and a mobile phone Samsung Galaxy A3 (SM-A300FU model)

I'm suffering lot of lost video frames when flying Tello into the official app "Tello" v1.2.12.02 from Shenzhen RYZE Tech Co.Ltd.

If I add the Gamesir T1d bluetooth controller then video problems gets worse with a lot of video lag.

Tello's firmware is updated to last version V01.03.33.01

As this problems don't happens to me using Tello apps from third party programmers, like aTello or aTelloPilot, I'm pretty sure this is a fault/incompatibility into official "Tello" app.

Could you solve this into a future app/firmware update ?

Thanks a lot

Hi Raul,

Thanks for reaching Ryze!

I'm so sorry to know that you're having video quality issues with your Tello drone being used with your Samsung Galaxy A3. Have you already tried setting your phone to airplane mode with wifi? If you have not yet, I encourage you to try it first to check if the issue will still persist.

Looking forward on your advice.

Before flying I always set my phone to airplane mode with wifi.

I'm pretty sure this is an compatibilty problem between my phone model and your Tello application.

I beg you send my suggestion to your programmers.

Thanks a lot.
