Thanks for response

I brute force push in the battery , seems to be charging

But then with the app, touch the video and not able to enter record video

Also the app exit on its own repeatedly a few times ,then I restarted my phone (Android)

Seems buggy

Battery charged. Establish WIFI with aircraft and follow instructions on screen.

I too noticed that some USB cables don’t work. Try a cable which is somewhat branded and a fast charger of more than 1 amp. If the blue light blink faster then there is still issue. Slow blue blinking light is good.

I did once updated firmware, but seems even worse, not able to fly, then re-install app and able to fly instantly

wonder what goodies would the update brings??

Now the issue is not able to record video and only take picture,not so good but better than not able to fly !!

Dear

I just found the App keep exiting while drone is flying, I need to race against app closing to finally get drone to land and stop. I sent a feedback to Facebook , hope they can look at it

Maybe this is what firmware upgrade fixed buy would upgrade creates another issue ?

Also it happens with my Tello; after 2 or 3 unsuscessful charges, I've found one charger and cable that charges the drone correctly.

Hi...sorry for your problem. Just want to ask what phone do you use? Sometime the problem with not able to take video but can take picture is because the app is not compatible with certain phone especially unrecognized android phone. Mine is like that but after the latest firmware update it seems that the problem have gone. Try another phone that is recommended by the company see whether the problem persist if yes then you will need technical support or buy another one.
