The proof will be in the pudding, well the test flight anyway.
Fingers crossed all goes well.
The setup wasn't really that hard, I think the hardest was getting my phone to find the device, switched from one phone to another and it picked it up right off the bat.

Anyone know of a repeater that has removable antennas? so I can switch one out with a patch and leave the other as a dipole.

Hopefully getting my Xiaomi WiFi repeater next week, any hints or tips on getting the best performance would be appreciated.
Thanks 😎
You just got an excellent accessory for Tello, it works great, I do not look for taking the Tello too far, I look for security and this Wi-Fi+ provides it, remember you could use a controller, if you have an iPhone or Samsung mobile, I would recommend you to use the Gamevice controller instead of GameSir T1, I have seen some interference caused by Bluetooth controllers, then just enjoy this awesome Drone

I bought a cheap Bluetooth controller from Amazon that works perfectly with the TelloFPV app, and cost less than the gamesir ones.

This worked flawlessly for me. Just make sure you choose mainland China for location because the repeater won't show up in the list if you don't. Then when you're done just uninstall the mi app

I didn’t know that the set up could be deleted after WiFi extender has been set up..

Yes it can be deleted. If you lose the configuration and it fails to connect, you will have to reset the repeater( by inserting a thumbtack in the small hole on the repeater, hold until yellow light is flashing) and re-install the app and start from the beginning. After it is configured though, there is no need for the app to be installed. I uninstalled it as soon as I was done configuring. I have heard of many people having to reconfigure multiple times, but I only had that issue one time. I think it was because I turned off the Tello1st and the repeater lost connection and tried to reconnect for several seconds before I disconnected the repeater. I always disconnect the repeater first and then power off the Tello and I have had no problems.
