If it shows just "Button" then this gamepad uses non-standard button IDs.

I will address this (and all other button / stick mapping issues) after the VR release.
@volate!lo OK, FYI this is the PS3 Sixaxis Controller. Please let me know if there is any other diag info I can provide.

No, thanks. Instead I will make this completely flexible, so that you can map any button & stick to any function or axis. That will allow any controller to work, including all those special ones.
That will allow to also use things like these for quick selfies:

Wow - when does it come? After the VR-Update?
That's fine. :)(y)
I still have a similar controller. This I can use for the Trainer & Student Mode.
But I must see if it's possible to connect 2 controllers via BT. :unsure:

Yes: let the kids fly on their own, and just keep this controller for the "PANIC" button.

2x BT should work, at least with Flypad and t1d it does. Of course you get double the BT interference.

BTW: Anyone got comments on the stream corruption indicator?

That's a cute controller. What is it? Do you have a link to it?

Look here: this or this
There are many more. Choose the one you like most.
That's not exactly what volate!lo mentioned, but I think this will also work.

I would like to try my controller, but I think I have to wait for the update. If you have the patience than wait. I'll try and post it.

Thanks. Unfortunately, I don't see these on the Amazon US site. In fact I don't see anything like either of these (or the one that @volate!lo showed). Not a big deal.

I have this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Gaming-Controller-Mocute-Bluetooth-Gamepad/dp/B07L5K64G1/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1546878426&sr=8-4&keywords=mocute+mini

It has a few strange modes for mouse control and IOS, but it also has a straight button mode that works OK as far as I can see (in the gamepad tester, not TelloFpv). I think I paid 2-3 Euro straight from china.
You can look it up "mocute mini gamepad"

This one looks interesting, too.

OK. On amazon.com are also several controllers. Simpli search for "bluetooth remote android".

By the way you will find these: One / Two / Three

Had my first sudden complete failure...Tello was 50 ft away and it just dropped to the ground from 7 ft or so. There was no warning and it functioned normally afterward. I wonder what happened.

If it just dropped its not a problem of TelloFpv. If it flew away or descended without user input thats another story, then I would need to look into this.
But dropping is in no way associated with the app (TelloFpv or any other app). Thats just not how the apps & tello communicate & work together, there is nothing I can do to cause Tello fall from the sky. For example the app does not control the motors when landing. Instead it just sends the command "land" to Tello, and Tello decends by itself in its own pace, lands, and turns off the motors.

My first idea would be a hardware failure. Dead battery or a bad connection. If it flew OK afterwards on the same battery I'd say a bad connection. Either on the battery / connector or to one motor.

I agree and I wasn't pointing a finger at the app. Should have posted to Tello Discussions.

Oh, ok. I though because it was posted here you thought it was TelloFpv.

Anyway, I think its good that other readers know what TelloFpv (and other apps) do and what they don't do.

All we need now is waypoints and I can automate flying the Tello around my house! Maybe in version 2.0 :)

Waypoints, follow me, orbit me, etc will go into another app. Just like obstacle avoidance, 3 axis headtracking, RTH on wifi lost, RTH with battery at 0%, 4k upscaling, and the 30min flight time extender :)

And don't forget hand gestures. You can call it Spark or maybe Airy.

hey, when the autopilot is enabled, does the vps will be temporary disabled?

No. The autopilots require the data from the VPS. If VPS becomes unavailable the APs will stop and give a notification.
