Ryze Tech Tello Overview

  • 1Description

Built in partnership with Ryze Tech, the DJI Tello Quadcopter is designed to be a cute, fun, and educational quadcopter drone. Its tiny form factor and smart Intel processor enable it to perform exciting aerial tricks on a whim, all through smartphone control. Download the free Tello app and get going, with intuitive controls for entertaining flying maneuvers. The included battery will power up to 13 minutes of flight on a full charge.

At the front of the Tello is a camera capable of streaming 720p video back to your smartphone and capturing 5-megapixel photos in flight. The intelligent flight processor can coordinate camera movements for some custom shooting angles. The vision positioning system uses a downward-facing camera to ensure stable hovering when desired.

Aside from the previously mentioned battery, the Tello also includes four pairs of propellers and propeller guards. Multicolored top plates are available separately to customize the look of your drone.

Great for Beginners
Flying the Tello drone is easy. Just pull out your phone with the app, and begin flying by literally tossing the drone in the air. For those feeling adventurous, the Tello is VR-headset compatible for FPV flying. Swipe on your smartphone to activate 8D flips for slick aerial moves. If you want more tactile control, connect a Bluetooth controller to your smartphone, and fly more traditionally.
Built-In Camera
The Tello can transmit 720p video or 5MP photos back to your smartphone from up to 330' away using its dual antenna array. Electronic image stabilization helps keep your photos and videos steady. Coordinated flight moves let you capture short videos with 'circle', '360', and 'up-up-and-away' styling for a professional touch.
Use Tello to Learn and Create
Ryze Tech made Tello programmable with Scratch, an MIT-developed visual coding system, which allows kids and teens to learn the basics of programming while having fun. If you're a more advanced user, you can also develop software applications using the Tello SDK.
Safety Features
Tello's lightweight, yet durable design features software and hardware protections, making it easy to fly with confidence.
  • Auto Takeoff/Landing: Lift off or land with a single tap
  • Low Battery Protection: Alerts go off when your battery gets low
  • Failsafe Protection: Land safely, even if you lose connection
  • Vision Positioning System: Downward-facing camera that facilitates precise hovering

Ryze Tech Tello Reviews

Tello Quadcopter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fun! This is my first “dronette”. Given that, I do not understand what all the gripes are. My copy works perfectly! The pictures and videos are better than I expect. The control app works very well. The range of operation is not great, but being an “old guy” I have a hard time keeping an eye on it anyway. If it got too far away, it would be lost. I have not had a single problem connecting to the Zello using my iPod Touch G6, and I crash it regularly. I was chasing a crow the other day until I caught a branch. It is great fun and a great introduction to aerial world. Yes, I am a rookie...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably best $100 Beginners Drone you can buy. Video needs This could be classified as a toy drone, but it could also be classified very realistically as a "beginner's drone" too, since it handles SO similarly to a Spark or Mavic Pro. If you own a larger drone and one a little for-fun flyer, this will feel very at-home. If you've never flown a drown before but are interested, this is a GREAT one to "get a feel" for it. Don't be surprised if you start eyeing a DJI Spark or Mavic Air soon after, though. That said, I'll hit through some quick points: Build Quality: Good. *VERY* light weight, yet feels durable. Plastic for arms has some give to it to help absorb impacts better. Nice big rubber feet under each motor. Prop Guards don't knock off easily. I honestly don't think it's possible to damage the camera. Flying Performance: Right now I've only been using it with my phone, and the responsiveness is... OK. It responds quick enough to inputs, but it's when you stop giving input that it can take a half-second or so too long or so to register -- which, that long drifting in one direction at full speed can be quite a bit of ground before it finally stops to hover. Definitely practice in a large open space first -- do not practice-fly it in your small bedroom or something first. You WILL need to get the feel for the touch controls and more space is more room for errors. But, when controlling with a game controller or very sensitive thumbs on the touch controls -- the Tello shows very nuanced control from VERY VERY slow movement and turning-in-place speeds all the way to surprisingly quick full throttle maneuvers. It has no problem tilting and blasting its motors for a quick stop if you suddenly let off the joy stick in sport mode. Hover accuracy definitely depends on available light. Anything less than daylight (sunny or bright cloudy conditions) will cause the Tello to drift, or at least until it finds something with high-enough contrast under it to track optically. It does keep altitude much more impressively, however. I can fly the Tello at fast speeds a foot above flat ground and it will maintain that height very well. Image Quality: Honestly, I'm surprised by the image quality in daylight conditions. I was expecting far worse, but it takes photos about as good as any front-facing cameras on most high-end phones. I was expecting more "Webcam from 2005" look, so I'm definitely satisfied here. It's actually good enough for stills that I'd have no problem flying this guy out at a family cook-out or something for an aerial group-shot to share on social media or something -- the Tello is so small and unimposing that I see it working well in situations like that, where a Mavic or Phantom would just call too much attention to itself. Video quality, right now, needs serious work. The quality is decent, but it has a problem right now where it drops frames every 2 seconds due to some issues with the WiFi connection or something. I'm sure Ryze/DJI will be addressing this issue eventually. But it's worth noting, that if you're in "Slow" movement mode, you get software video stabilization, and it does a decent job at it. In "Fast" mode, you'll get a wide field of view, but you'll also see the full range of motion from the drone, which can be hard to follow hahah. Anyway, photos and video are saved directly to your phone. The Tello has no storage in itself. Before take-off, SET YOUR PHOTO QUALITY TO HIGH and VIDEO BITRATE TO 4mbps IN SETTINGS. It'll look WAY nicer. Additional thoughts: Some of the flight modes are handy. Throw-take-off works very well, and the Tello "catches" itself very quickly without moving much further from your toss. Hand-Landing also works, but can be a little unnerving with how easily a finger could pass through to the propellers. I've tried it once, and it almost rolled off my hand onto the ground -- probably won't need to do that very often. 360-degree video is great, hovers, turning VERY SLOWLY in-place taking a video. Once they fix the dropped-frames issue it'd be even better.? Battery life is what it says on the box, somewhere between 10-14 minutes depending on conditions. Definitely buy a spare battery or two plus a charger. Remember, as-is you can only recharge batteries IN the drone. Swapping batteries is at least very quick and reconnecting the drone is fast and mostly painless. The Tello App is very good at re-establishing connection without having to restart the app every time (unlike DJI GO hurhur.) That said, the app COULD use a slight bit more functionality. I wish it would remember my image quality settings, it's kinda hard to tell if it's recording sometimes, and the gallery section lacks a "Share" option. Kinda wish it had a microSD Card slot. But anyway, it's a stellar simple drone that if I somehow completely manage to smash into a tree, I won't be sad and will definitely get another as a replacement. Will update this review if/when I find other things out. Attached photos were taken with the Tello. Note: the "aerial" image is actually looking out of the windows at my office. No way it'd be able to survive in that storm outside lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I am very pleased with the tello. Only had it for a few weeks now, and it has performed as expected. I also own a DJI Phantom as well, and do not expect the tello to perform like the Phantoms do. I have read many reviews before Purchasing the tello and for to money you get a well designed drone. Battery life is short, but the price of a battery is cheap, so brought two when I purchased the tello. I like people to think of this.. you are not required to register the drone, you can fly in many locations without a critical eye from people unlike flying a phantom or similar drones of size. ( following city and state drone laws of course). ?If you plan well ?before you fly, you can get some decent photos and videos from the tello. My final conclusion about the tello is to practice, practice and practice so as to reduce crashing, and enjoy the tello.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun can lead to scary moments while I picked this up from another retailer I will say it is a ton of fun. good for learning on. I will say read the fine print before buying. Not all phones are supported. My s8 infact is not so a bad to dig out a old LG that did. start up is easy but I will say when you first open go ahead and put it in charge for a hour the. do the start up. I flew this a couple of times today (3-29-18) first time it was tons of fun. I live in Kansas and we always have some wind. Today it was light 2ish miles an hour and while flying the second time I lost wifi connection. the drone took off in the wind and it got stuck up a tree. an hour later and quite embarrassed I finally got it down. only broke 1 prop. oh and to get it down I had to hit it with a stick and it fell 25 feet. After my little misshape I was able to replace the prop and charge it. it works great. Tough little guy. I would buy a spare battery as it really only last 10mins or so and a hard carrying case but other than that fun little starter drone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sure is fun. I have an Inspire2 and a P4P as well. Love this little guy. It will drift in low light but does a really good job of holding station based on the sensors on the bottom of the drone if it is not too dark. I have not figured out which remote to use and the phone based controls are not nearly as easy to use as a real remote. Ill get there. Like it enough I ordered another battery and a case. This will he handy to have sitting in the car just in case I need a quick shot of a house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great example of its breed! Not to be too Kantian, if you want what this is, you will almost assuredly be very happy with it. Amazingly stable in lowish winds. Surprisingly easy to fly with only your iPhone (and maybe Android-phone). But slightly better ergs with a separate controller. Wifi range extender and battery pack definitely good ideas, too. "Decent" still photos. Apologies for not having videoed yet, so no report there...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginners Quad I have a few quadcopter this one the Tello is awesome its not perfect but i like the fact its stable enough. i charged the battery and downloaded the app and its was flying with no problems, for such a small quad it handles very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good videos and easy to fly I took it over the weekend to the beach where there were moderate wind but it kept steady.? Got some great footage and the nice thing is that it was fairly quiet and a lot of people didn't even noticed that it was there.

Do I need a smartphone to fly this drone or can it pair with a controller without a smartphone?
Asked by: Anonymous
The start up must use na smartphone, then you can pair some select BT controllers and fly.So you CAN fly without a mobile device. But to configure and capture images you MUST use a mobile device.

I don't have a smart phone, can I just hook up to the GameSir T1d controller without a smartphone?

No, it is not possible. The connection with drone is via wifi from the smartphone and the connection with the controller is via Bluetooth via smartphone app. The controller does not connect with the drone using radio frequency.
