This is my take on a Tello light add-on:


It uses an ESP8266 microcontroller which can be made available in the same WiFi network as my Tello EDU connects to, when switched to WLan client mode. It allows me to control remotely each color of each RGBW LED from a NeoPixel strip as well as to choose from a set of animations.

Additionally, it has a white high power (0.5 W) LED on the bottem allowing to illuminate a mission pad.

It can be powered by external LiPo battery (one cell) or - if you are brave - you can pick up the power directly from the Tello battery (which definitely will kill warrenty...) on your own risk. As you may knowalready, the micro USB OTG connector can not be used as power source anymore when you installed the latest EDU firmware.
