I acheived a 1248 ft distance at about 100ft up in a very high interferance zone recently, I flew over a highschool
with nearby Goverment housing authority so tons of wifi around, this was just with the Wifi extender and me pointing torwards myself as i flew away from my takeoff point.

Gutsy. This would be me panicking, flying that distance and height with no controller.
haha seemed quite responsive that far out, smooth video the whole way, i need to find a field far from any signal interference and test it back out, i believe there’s more range that the tello is capable of...

However in the meantime i was messing around in my backyard in Sport mode today and tried making a sharp U turn after flying torwards the brick siding of my house full speed and didn’t quite slow down quickly enough so i smacked my tello into the wall at id say around 10-15 mph...

Needless to say i messed up my front left motor. so now i’m ordering some later this week and preforming a repair, which hopefully goes good and well... also i’ve given my tello cover, and prop guards a pretty nice little paint job.. just waiting on that to dry up and i’ll post pictures.

had to grab life by the balls haha, you only drone once. to be honest i was never nervous i think that it has pretty reliable signal stability, i think it will go further in another location. the real kicker is i started the flight at 75 percent battery, i don’t fly with guards
