So while I was looking at some camera hacks for the tello, I noticed that I have an old LG V20 laying around my house. So I took the phone apart and noticed that the ribbon plug is the exact same as the tellos' camera. So my next step is to hook it up and see if it will works. I'll post my results tomorrow, but if anyone knows anything about what the outcome will be please let me know.

I'm afraid that it will not work without hacking/updating the firmware on the board. Camera needs to be initialized before use by the software.

But I'm as much curious as you ;) So i'm also waiting for your results.

Sorry for the long delay but I worked with this for a long time. First I got the ribbon connector for the right size to connect with the Tello but if I would have logged in and seen w84death reply it would have saved me some time. But in the end I tried patching and writing some code to connect with the camera but no luck . Looks like we'll have to keep looking but I'm not giving up.
