    YOU SHOULD NOT USE PROP GUARDS WHEN FLYING OUTSIDE. This effects video quality and aerodynamics and flight time, the wind will grab the prop guards and will make it fly like a kite. I have also had good and bad video feeds depending on the device I use. High end Samsung or iPhone had a much better connection than less quality devices. Tello is a great beginner drone, have fun.

    Very useful update review. Re dropped frames videos, please show how it is with a lower bitrate (720 res should be good with 2.5mbps) and a WiFi extender, thanks!

    I have that drone but I don’t fly the tello drone anymore because I got my new drone DJI Mavic Mini so I fly my Mavic Mini drone more than tello drone and tello drone doesn’t have gps the Mavic Mini does

    Does anyone here have any experience on controlling the Tello drone with an ipad 6th generation? Tello support tells me only ipad 4 mini is supported (but that they're testing other devices).

    Love my Tello. It's just a cute and funny drone. I put a little anti collision strobe on it with velcro. It adds to the comedy. There it is flying around the garden at maybe 20 feet high and it's flashing away like it's trying to avoid a helicopter. The light also helps when it crashes in dense brush. Hard to find except for the flashing light.
