About the Ryze Tello

The Tello - a small quad with a big heart!

Tello is a product of Ryze Robotics main page or see Ryze Technology 'About' page
With the aid of a bottom infrared emitter and sensor on either side of a downward facing monochrome camera, Tello is very stable to fly and can reliably hover in place.
The camera + firmware use an amazing technology called 'optical flow' to establish and maintain a stable hover, and can also calculate distance from Home.

The Tello EDU - a 'smarter' Tello?

The Tello EDU is the educational version, designed ......

The Tello Ironman - a 'colorful' Tello?

Specs to be added soon.

About this page

This wiki hopes to help owners of the Ryze Tello quadcopter learn more about their little marvel, determine solutions to issues they may be having...
And have the most FUN possible with little Tello!

Tello Flyers wiki will cover general information on:

  • Apps
  • Controllers
  • WiFi Extenders
  • Cases
  • Accessories
  • Motors
  • Incompatibilities
  • Quirks of certain Devices or Android versions
  • and/or the best suggestions to solve certain problems

I'll do my best to make sure the info on the wiki is factual and, if it's a technique or workaround, that it's confirmed to work.

the Tello Pilots forum

The best place for reading and getting answers to specific questions is the TelloPilots forum
The 'Search' function there works very well!

Tips and Tricks

OK... Let's start with Apps and Controllers

Android apps

Tello (by Ryze)

- available in Google Play store, free
- works with Gamesir T1d via Bluetooth only, sometimes causes interference with the video stream, tho some users report no interference.
- works with T1s, also via BT only, everything (wifi, bt, app) has to be started in a certain sequence, at least the first time (to be added later)
- not known to work with any OTG controllers

aTello (Krag)

- available on github, free, no recent development

aTelloPilot (bluejune)

- available on Google Play store, $4.49 USD
- Very good alternative to the oem Tello app
- Has many cool functions and features
- Supports other controllers besides the T1d (more specifics later)

DroneVR+ (Appologics)

- available on Google Play store, free for Tello

TelloFPV (volate!lo)

- The "new kid on the block" - clean GUI, loaded with features
- Very versatile regarding controllers - any that Android recognizes will work
