Hello All,
I'm trying to create a full autonomous tello drone, and be able to manage it from anywhere.

Do you know if this is even possible to let the drone awake (He always turn off after some times) ?
Do you think this is possible to charge the battery in wireless, inductive charging ?

edit:
Found that Contact charging system but I think it will be so expensive.
Will try to build a system of my own for auto charging

Thank you

Hello,
we have a similar discussion here: Remotely switch on/off, auto recharge, precision land

Regarding automatic recharging (after precision landing): You could use contacts on the landing "feet" and connect them directly to the battery. But you need an external charging control circuit in this case. You can see how to connect to the pins which carry the battery power in this video:


Inductive charging would add too much weight to Tello and would require an even more precise landing position.
