In my haste to set up my Tello Boost Combo, I inserted the battery in upside down. It is now stuck fast - any ideas?

You can try to remove the top cover (at the risk of breaking some "plastic noses"). It may help to lever / pull out the battery.

Afterwards you should check the contacts. A am afraid, you bent them, so that the battery will not get adequate contact to the Tello PCB afterwards, when inserted correctly.

Battery removed and reinstalled correctly with no apparent after effects - although I missed the sunset!
I removed the screwed-on cover and the clip on cover such that the extra flex in the body and the better gripability - allowed me to ease the battery out!
Possibly a lucky outcome as well as a lesson learnt!
