Hey there! Since its some time until the Tello is available in my country, I wanted to ask those of you who already own it, to post some shots you've already taken with it, so I get some impressions of its possibilities

And maybe your experiences with the little copter!!

Edit: Since there is no official Tello-section yet, I'd like to try this thread as a little starter; You can find most of the Tello-related stuff in here

Today I got one from Tomtop. Fast, but witha damaged package, as it was protected real flimsy like. Also: no extra props and no quick start manual - but that might have been customs.
As for the Tello - it's soso. It is relly caprious to what it's connecting to: no VK World smartphone, no Teclast and no Voyo Tablet - also the app crashes with both tablets and also a Chuwi HI12.
It flies very stable but I find it nearly unusable at home, it's so loud, it hurts the ears, and that's not just a saying.
I am not really sure it's worth more than double of a good cheap selfie drone like the Visuo.
Any tipps how to get that app running on other phones or tablets? My old Teclast would be the ideal size for it and it runs everything else.

I have a DJI spark which I love. I also just received this past week the Ryze Tello endorsed by DJI.
This is a great little drone. It's inexpensive ,easy to fly and, most interestingly, programmable.
I used the scratch editor with my windows pc to program it.  It worked okay but after I got out of that and was just using my iPhone I started having trouble with the drone taking off. I contacted Ryze and the tech had me do a wifi reset, then an imu calibration and finally a reboot. That worked for awhile then it started acting up again. The motors would come on it would attempt to takeoff and then it would just land. I contacted Ryze again and they said they were working on a new firmware update that would take care of it. Luckily I can keep flying my spark until then. Sorry for the long comment but I thought you might like to know.

Thanks Grace! I just posted in the Tello-Event category and I was the first. I'm having a problem charging my battery to 100%. Hopefully someone has some insight.

No.  But they are apparently a better quality brushed motor and perhaps replaceable.

They have actually not been in stock yet at all, except one sent with new drones.  There are already some aftermarket 3rd party copies for sale, but as you know, they are perhaps risky.  Ryze told me in a support chat they should be available in "from one to three weeks."

Do you think the Tello would make for a good FPV indoor quad that you can hook up some virtual goggles to your smartphone and fly around the house with?

Yeah, Toys R Us here was having a going out of business sale and this week I purchased several AIR HOGS DR1 FPV RACING DRONE. They were selling for $99.99 and I picked up 4 for $29.99 each. They have camera and remote and virtual goggles, in fact I used the goggles on my Spark and it did really well.

I would recommend the AIR HOGS drone to anyone who's looking for a rugged FPV indoor small quad that they can do a little virtual flying with.

I'm first waiting for some big bills that are about to come because we need to repair our roof.
After that, I'll see what budget is left....

And YES, I miss my MP
One of the best purchase I made so far.
I don't know what the future will bring, but MP or MA would both be great.
I got some raw MA footage from Wachtenberg to test and it sure looks great.
Both have their pro's and con's and both would work for me.
And for MP2.... I'm afraid it is to expensive for me. Whenever it will come.

What happened to your roof? I just imagine you're pretty interested in flying given how much knowledge you have and how interested you are here on the boards?

You can probably pick up another Mavic Pro on the cheap end. The first one I purchased went back and I purchased my new one last week for $799 and that was tax included and brand new sealed in the box.

So far my top speed has been 43.8 mph. My last MP the top speed was 41.7 mph?

We bought an old home (1931) about 1 year ago and two roofs need replacing.
One of them started to leak just today.....
Very nice place to live, but it has a price

The first Mavic Pro was purchased a couple of weeks ago at Walmart for $1,084, and they don't price match anymore, which was the reason why I purchased the second Mavic Pro for $799.

Yes, they did come down on price.
There is 2 things I doubt about after having owned the MP for 3 beautiful flights.
1. The gimbal is very exposed and feels like I'm going to break it someday (I am a bit clumsy from time to time)
2. The bitrate is too low for 4K footage.

But other than that I really loved the MP.
Now the MA does also give great footage and is even lighter and a little cheaper.
So I still don't know.
The roof guy will come tomorrow and I will have to wait for the quotation.
But it won't be cheap.
It is a lot of roof to replace.

We'll see what happens.
But there will be a drone. Hopefully before this summer

That is ridiculous cheap.
We don't get that deal in NL.
Fly more combo was € 1089,- last week. Now a bit up again.
Cheapest so far was € 1045,- that I have seen.

I am scared to death about flying the Mavic Pro with its delicate Gimbal. I keep my fingers crossed during every flight.

My feeling is since DJI only covers the first 6 months of the warranty for the Gimbal, it makes me want to fly more in the event my Mavic Pro camera becomes faulty. I'd rather go through that early than later without the warranty.

What do you think?

Amazon had it for $769 that same week but it was not including tax. The $799 price I paid including tax was the lowest price I've seen Mavic Pro selling. The retailer now went back up to $999 so I was lucky the return to Walmart went through and my local retailer had one in stock. It all worked out, which makes me feel more comfortable with my purchase :-)

It at least makes me hesitate on buying.
I really not liked the gimbal clamp and how you had to remove it.
Felt like breaking the thing.
