I just got a Tello and unboxed.  Every time I try to use it I am unable to keep it stationary.  It constantly drifts upward until it hits the ceiling.  How do we fix this?

Samsung Note 8.  I have a black epoxy floor (dunno if that matters).  The tello has the stock firmware out of the package.  It does NOT drift outside.
I have tried it in other rooms to see if the floor color mattered.  Some have more light than others.  Seems to happen only indoors though.

Today my drone gone crazy. My third outside drone experience, sad story. I have shown this wonderful little drone to the children. I controlled it with the Nexus 5x phone. he was crawling nicely in the yard. then I gave him the command 360 and tried to raise it up a little. then drone gone just crazy - a system error. he started to rise up, up, up.... It was very high, out of reach of the phone. We barely saw him yet. we followed him when the wind took it. Unfortunately, he took him to the tall trees, the spruce, where he ran into the top of the tree and stayed there. it is impossible to reach it due to the extraordinary height. Unfortunately, our first drones remained on the tree. I was looking for a forum on the Internet for this error, but I can not find anything. No drone more...

I had the same thing happen to my Tello..
Upon close inspection, I noticed a tip of a propellor was broken..
Change the prop using one the spares.. Look closely and make sure its the prop with the same alignment. (they angle in different directions).
I changed the prop and all was good.
