Apple approved a preliminary version to the store, so I was able to create this pre-order entry.
The first "real" version was just submitted to Testflight minutes ago, and once approved will be released to beta testers. Approval should take a day or two but during holiday season & covid you never know
The real thing should be ready early January but will not be 100% complete (lacking flight logs for example, maybe VR). Completion will take a few more weeks but I won't do every detail the same way I have done it in Android.
Over the last year I learned what makes sense and what doesn't:
Controller tuning will be simpler, and won't support a separate configuration for each controller you may have for example.
External controllers supported are MFI, Flypad, Gamesir T1d, and whatever the iOS supports (PS4 I think works as well).
I won't do the vGPS add-on, as I don't consider it _that_ useful and it was a huge pile of work for the microscopic revenue it generates (like a beer or two per month!).
Would you recommend that users who have access to an android use that vs the iOS version? Or won’t matter?
Hi Volatello, I have a youtube channel about Tello and other drones... I make several videos about your app TelloFPV and TelloMe. Please, send the code to Testflight, because I want test this app and post it on my channel. My mail is rthdr[email protected] and my channel bit.ly/rthdrone. I bought in apple store the tellofpv app.
I would be interested in trying beta mode then. I was debating adding it to Tellofpv to my fire tablet (may still as it’s a bigger screen) but using one device is just simpler. Messaged you my apple email.
Hi there. I constantly check all app stores and I’ve never seen anything remotely close to what we’re looking for in Amazons App Store. Tello related apps.Are you sideloading from Google play store or using another mechanism? I thought the very same thing simply for that reason, screen size and the fact that Amazon tabs are very affordable for tablets. which makes them very well-suited for the Tello. I have nicer and more complicated drones but we’re all in this for pretty much the same reason, the Tello is affordable enough to get everyone involved. If you have a way to get that on a fire tab, it would be a wonderful idea to share that with others. Inexpensive drone plus inexpensive tablet equals world of opportunity. I’ve done a lot of experimenting and I’m trying to find the right videos now so I can share what I’ve learned. Afraid the particular videos I’m looking for are on a device that no longer works but I will make more. They involve night flight, as is somewhat difficult and risky because Tello can easily lose orientation. Good luck with everything and let me know.I would be interested in trying beta mode then.

Hey thanks. I’m searching for the thread volatello sent a while back to let him know I intend to share the night flight info. I just pulled this link, I assume this is what you’re referring? interested in trying some night flying?Check out fire toolbox on xda developers. You can add the google play store and several other things. You can do it without but this is the simplest solution. Just installed and did a test flight earlier. Worked great. But am gonna check out the iOS version too.
Ok. No problem. I’m in North Carolina, let me check what time it is in Germany, and where are you? I should share this information with volatello as well.Yes. It links you to a thread explaining how to install. It’s fairly simple vs advanced rooting, etc. yes interested in might flights.
Thanks for finding me, I’m drowning in the deep end. I just tried to respond to you with two different tablets and for some reason I couldn’t get logged in. My elderly mother got hacked. I had our devices linked together .Most of my stuff will not work. i’m now experiencing the very same problems that my mother has had for years.uuugh. Anyway I’ve got information to share with you, and I guess I should say congratulations because it looks like you are launching a new app.maybe make this a separate thread with an appropriate title so people can find it
