PS, I don't have any other DJI drones to play with - this $99 tello is perfect for labs and indoor use
The Tello is well under 300 grams too (80 grams to be exact). It is a toy and can't fly out of the Phone's WiFi range, so you don't even need the registration for that.
The Mavic has been on my radar for sometime and I have some outdoor robots coming up and would be great to shoot that video with the Mavic. It’s too bad the resolution on the Tello is only 720.
im blown away with this drone. It’s popular with a number of our universities and I kept dismissing it because ... well, it seemed like a toy. An enterprise Education customer really wanted it - and I’m glad we did it. Because this thing is such a blast.
I have one of these drones and a pile of batteries because it doesn't fly very long. I wonder if you could come up with a way to get it to go on a mission and then self charge and go again. Maybe get it to find a Glyph and land in front of it on a charging pad. hmmm
You can buy a tello for ~$100 but at the moment you can only fly it with the tello Movement Panel and I haven't worked out how to tell it to take off or land or fly at a certain height etc, It doesn't have a GPS so way points and NMS doesn't look possible although DJ said he was looking into that a while ago (can't see how it would be possible though)
The camera tracking works so that is pretty cool.
I going to test if the ARC can detect my drone's camera as soon as the battery charges - I will let you know
I do connect on my hot spot (like now) for some internet connection.
Need to try this at home with real internet and a router
