Hi guys, I want to put vinyl on my tello cover. Think of a sticker. Would the weight effect the flight even though it's such a small amount. Can the tello take any weight and not be effected. Also would flying without a cover make the battery last longer?

Take a look at this thread:


Any weight you add on to the Tello will affect performance to a degree depending on the accessories.

I have two strobes attached to the rear of the Tello for orientation lights and it cut the battery from roughly 11+ minutes to 8+ minutes. Even removing the prop guards helped the battery life by bringing it back to 10+ minutes.

Just for reference .... I put the little LEGO clamp with Wonder Woman on mine for fun.....didn’t actually test it for time but it didn’t significantly affect it flying or hovering abilities

Hi, I put vinil on my cover a few weeks ago, I did not see any issues with flight times nor drag.
You can see more on my thread.

If you have any questions feel free
