First Flight With DJI Tello With Photos And Video Footage

Picked up the DJI Tello (Ryze) drone yesterday from the DJI store in Halifax Nova Scotia yesterday for 128$ CDN or 100$ US. The next morning, drove up to a local park to do my first flight outdoors and test out the camera for photo and video quality.

Note that the latest firmware available as of March 24 2018 greatly improved the video quality. The update was applied after this video was shot

The winds were between 15-20 mph, so I didn’t try to get very high. One thing I noticed was that the snow made is hard for the sensors to remain stable. Certain take offs had it sway more than usual, or the control required more effort to compensate.

First thing you do is to turn on the Tello and search for the wifi on your smartphone. Make sure you downloaded the Tello app from Apple or Google play store.

Once you’ve connected to the Tello via wifi, you can use the app to connect to it (if it’s the first time) and get used to the control within the app.

The gear is your settings where you can tweak aspects of the done, I left everything default.

The drone icon is the different flight modes. In this video I only tried the 360 degree mode.

The icon on the left is your take off or land icon. When landing you have the choice of landing on your hand or to the ground.

On the right side of the app is your camera/ video controls. I found the icon a bit confusing.
