After a flight away and a happy retrieval after 4 days out in the open with snow and rain, we finally found the Tello drone again in a neighboring garden. Amazing that it has not been damaged by having been out in the weather for 4 days. A white and black little drone is not easy to see when looking for it especially when it is winter and snow. So you decided to make it a little more visible. The result of that you see here. tello mod 2.jpg tello mod.jpg

Looks great! I had the same issue today after a very light snow. My Tello auto landed in a field and was perfectly camouflaged. Very tough to find. Will be doing the same to mine tomorrow!

That's a great idea. I'm not sure why anybody would buy the camo skins I've seen on Amazon. You've got the right idea, more visible not less!

What type of paint did you use on the plastic parts?

Nice paint job. I almost lost mine in the snow too! The Tello just went up-up and away bounced off the roof, and crashed in a tree and the battery landed in the snow.... a black bit that could have been confused for a bit of wood.

I've heard of people putting one of the "Tile" locators on their Tello. It works on Bluetooth. Amazon.com: Tile Mate (2020) - 1 Pack: Electronics It's only a 100 ft range, but if you know the area where your Tello went down, it's better than nothing. They also make one that has a replaceable battery too. And even smaller ones that just stick on.
