TelloPy vs pytello

A lot of TelloPy comes from the Gobot code, while pytello was always python.

I haven't gotten TelloPy to work, but I have used pytello and that works well (for control.) It streams video which can be saved, too, but I can't seem to get it to live-play this video.
TelloPy does support live video playing.
 
I am testing TelloPy from yesterday and I think it is amazing library. Works well with joystick, video stream, has OpenCV interface. Tested on mac os x.
 
I like TelloPy, its pretty awesome and contains a lot of the functions to control the drone.

The example uses mplayer to display the video stream from the drone. you can save the raw stream data as a binary and use the -fps 25 option on mplayer to play it back.

I was able to get ffmpeg to convert the mp4 stream to raw frames that opencv can use. I am trying to figure out how to use an Aruco marker and have the drone follow me (stay center of the marker on my chest). There is a ~1 second lag on the video which is a bummer, not sure if its the drone or ffmpeg.

I tapped a raspberry pi zero wireless and was surprised it had enough strength to carry it without around without issue. Not sure on flight time, but automated drone might be possible...
