Hey'a!

So I've modded my Ryze Tello to be foldable. Got it down to 80x75x45mm folded. Forgot to measure the size of the quad with propellers on and without prop guards before tearing it apart though..

Need a really easy measurement, see picture below :)

Thanks :)

Could anybody help out with measurement:
Front right arm tip (without prop or prop guard) to rear left arm tip?
Just need rough measurement :)

Hi eligri,

the Tello is still flying?
Show me how you folded Tello.

greeting

Scroll upp and you can see it :)

It's a 3d printed frame. Folds and flies nicely. Had to replace antennas with just simple cut wires at correct length, so range is quite a bit worse. About 25-35m. Could be done in another way to maintain range better, but I didnt bother since it's mostly a selfie drone.

No good locks for the arms yet, but will be adding springs to them to keep them in place.

Gave it a longer test, about 40m with decent signal still. So probably closer to 50-65m LOS. Not really less than stock if I remember correctly?
(No wifi signal extender)

Depends on your phone.
I get decent signal (40dbm) at 80m with my standard test device (Samsung S7).


Anyway, interesting project. Thanks for posting!
