If you plan to buy a controller from GameSir, go for the T1s enhanced model!

I first bought the T1d, but it turned out you can't use it with enything else, but Tello. The controller had a good ergonomics and the build, but it would not pair with the phone or anyhting else - it could only be connected to from within the Tello app.

After some research, I bought T1s, which I recieved yesterday (will be returning T1d to the store).

It works with Tello - you first pair it with the phone, then connect from within the Tello app, at which point it switches to the X-mode
It works with the iPhone - once Bluetooth paired, it is recognised as a keyboard
It works with Android - not tested, as I don't have A-phones
It works with a PC (by either using a cable or an included USB dongle) - in two modes: as an XBox controller (i.e. a joystick, which I configured fly XPlane on the HTPC mcachine) or as a keyboard/mouse (the latter did not work that well. EDIT: in this mode Win7 recognised it as a joystick as well, but with a slightly different layout).

All in all, GameSir T1s is a much better choice, even if you initially only plan to fly Tello.

Yes, it works with the official Tello app on iPhone.
That is part of the reason I started this thread ;)

Have you tried to connect it by lightning OTG cable to the iPhone in order to bypass the bluetooth and WiFi interference?

No, I haven't tried that. My hunch is that it won't work, as the app expects a BT connection. I can try it later (don't have Tello with me now) with a Mavic OTG cable.
As for the interference, I bought a Wi-Fi range extender  to combat that and to, well, increase the fight range.

For example Gamevice controller is using lightning cable and is recognized by iphone Tello app. I also use WiFi repeater (Xiaomi Mi WiFi repeater 2) otherwise the Tello connection & control quickly becomes unstable and the drone video is unusable.

T1S works primary with Android both by bluetooth and wired vs OTG cable.

Got a T1s from Amazon today. Works fine with Tello on Samsung S9+ android phone.  I have a T1d as well.  Both work the same.
