abunda_amazon_reviews Over the past few years, I've wanted to buy a drone, but they just seemed too expensive for a hobby and the cheap ones had really bad reviews. Several articles rated this model as the best inexpensive drone for beginners so I gave it a shot. Overall, I was very impressed how well this thing performed for the price. -Flight time: You can about 10 - 15 minutes flight time depending on what you're doing. While it doesn't sound like a lot, it feels much longer. For longer time, just pick up an extra battery and swap it out. The battery takes about an hour and 15 minutes to charge. You charge it by using a microUSB cable connected to the drone (not included) -Setup: You download the app from the app store and connect it to your phone using a Wifi Connection. Setup was maybe 3 minutes. Tip: If you're on Android, once you connect to the Drone's Wifi, wait for your phone to say it's connected to wifi network but there's no internet and then tell it to stay connected anyway (usually takes about a minute). Once it does that, it's fine but it took me awhile to figure that out. It's clearly an Android issue and not the drone because I have the same problem with Smart Outlets / Amazon Alexa setup. -Flying: It's really easy to get the hang of flying this done. I've flown it inside and outside and even with a breeze, it was pretty easy to control. It went as high as 30' or so (one picture is of a neighborhood over a 2 story home). By default, it's on a slow setting which is better for indoors. If you're outdoors, turn on the fast setting and this thing really zips. It has a really long range and was able to control the done over a distance of more than baseball field. It easily hovers in place and is actually quite stable to control. It does need a good amount of ambient light to operate though. The drone has sensors on the bottom that it uses to look at the ground and stabilize itself. It works amazingly well but had some problems when being used indoors in more dimly lit rooms. This will not fly at dusk or night. -Picture/Video: The picture quality is really good for a 5MP camera mounted on a drone. You could come out with some neat pictures with this. The video feed on the phone itself when you're flying it usually has very little lag but the video saved on your phone can be choppy at time. It's decent enough for a drone in this price range, just don't expect professional level video. Also, the camera on this drone is fixed (always facing forward) so don't expect to angle it down for a bird's eye view. -Durability: Reading over reviews of other drones, I never understood why people kept talking about crashing them, but as a beginner you're going to crash the drone a lot. I've hit halls, ceilings, trees, the ground and many other things. The drone just stops itself, you put it flat on the floor again and tell it to take off. It's remarkably durable and haven't had any issues with it being damaged. It does come with a few replacement propellers if you need them. Overall, it's a really fun toy and a great way to start with drones. It's really well built and powerful for the price and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to start playing with drones without spending a ton of money.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 30, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Really well performing drone for the price;;R Young;;;Tello is a very good toy drone for beginners because it can hover in one place on its own (with good lighting conditions) Pros - lightweight and easy to maneuver, decent 5 MP camera that takes nice pictures and videos (for the money it is actually the best), fairly easy to control with your cell phone, pretty durable (fell several times on concrete from about 10 feet with no real damage to the props/body, just keep the prop guards on); Cons - too lightweight (you can't fly it in any wind over 5 mph, I tried, it flies away lol), Wi-Fi connection is spotty and its range is limited, updates are hard to install, once it's dark the drone stops 'sensing' the ground which is a problem because then it can no longer hover in one place on its own and it's hard to land it. The drone's greatest asset is its camera, I enjoy using it indoors. Just know its limitations and you won't be disappointed. Update: I recently got a Xiaomi wi fi range extender for the Tello and it does increase the range a lot! I watched a couple of instructional YouTube videos before connecting the Xiaomi, and luckily there are also some helpful directions on the package itself (after you create an account you can easily change the region, like U.S., China, etc so it's better to just play around and see what region works for you). Second update: so it's been a while since I got it, and Tello is still flying fine. One more thing to consider: with prices on drones like DJI Spark and Yuneec Breeze (you can get it as low as $99, since it's at the end of it's lifecycle) steadily coming down, and new players entering the entry level drone market (like Xiaomi), you might want to save a bit more and just get a Spark or a similar drone instead.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 10, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Tello is a very good toy drone for beginners because it can hover in ...;;A.I.;;;IF YOU'RE CONNECTED TO TELLO'S WIFI ON ANDROID, BUT THE APP SHOWS BLACK, TURN OFF YOUR PHONE'S DATA. It does what it does very well. That's part of the problem. Cheap quadcopters are a challenge to fly. Expensive ones are very capable. This one is great for learning to fly, but it can't do much and it's not really a challenge. By 'do much' I mean that without gps you can't program flight paths or return to base or whatever. You're also limited to 10m altitude. With no onboard memory card, any pictures or video are degraded by the wifi signal, so, as good as the camera is, unique high-altitude pictures or video are not as good as they could be. High speed mode is limited by how well you can see the drone, because the camera is always tilted down (and a little laggy) so it's impossible to fly by camera. Of course fixing all of this would pump up the price and you'd end up with a drone 5-10 x the price. Don't get me wrong, it connects well, it flies well, it takes pretty good pictures for perspectives that my camera can't get. It's pretty damn stable in low wind, using an undercarriage camera and other sensors for position stability. It's under 250g, so you're not forced to register it in the US. The screen controls are good enough that, if I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy the single-use T1d controller that can't do anything but the Tello.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;It does what it does very well.;;madcow3417;;;Tello needs to get their stuff together.

Check the roof, scout out land, make video memories. Many uses and very easy to control. Get at least 3 batteries. Time flies when your having fun (pun intended).

I've hit halls, ceilings, trees, the ground and many other things. The drone just stops itself, you put it flat on the floor again and tell it to take off. It's remarkably durable and haven't had any issues with it being damaged. It does come with a few replacement propellers if you need them. Overall, it's a really fun toy and a great way to start with drones. It's really well built and powerful for the price and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to start playing with drones without spending a ton of money.

Tello is a very good toy drone for beginners because it can hover in one place on its own (with good lighting conditions) Pros - lightweight and easy to maneuver, decent 5 MP camera that takes nice pictures and videos (for the money it is actually the best), fairly easy to control with your cell phone, pretty durable (fell several times on concrete from about 10 feet with no real damage to the props/body, just keep the prop guards on); Cons - too lightweight (you can't fly it in any wind over 5 mph, I tried, it flies away lol), Wi-Fi connection is spotty and its range is limited, updates are hard to install, once it's dark the drone stops 'sensing' the ground which is a problem because then it can no longer hover in one place on its own and it's hard to land it. The drone's greatest asset is its camera, I enjoy using it indoors. Just know its limitations and you won't be disappointed. Update: I recently got a Xiaomi wi fi range extender for the Tello and it does increase the range a lot! I watched a couple of instructional YouTube videos before connecting the Xiaomi, and luckily there are also some helpful directions on the package itself (after you create an account you can easily change the region, like U.S., China, etc so it's better to just play around and see what region works for you). Second update: so it's been a while since I got it, and Tello is still flying fine. One more thing to consider: with prices on drones like DJI Spark and Yuneec Breeze (you can get it as low as $99, since it's at the end of it's lifecycle) steadily coming down, and new players entering the entry level drone market (like Xiaomi), you might want to save a bit more and just get a Spark or a similar drone instead.

It does what it does very well.
IF YOU'RE CONNECTED TO TELLO'S WIFI ON ANDROID, BUT THE APP SHOWS BLACK, TURN OFF YOUR PHONE'S DATA. It does what it does very well. That's part of the problem. Cheap quadcopters are a challenge to fly. Expensive ones are very capable. This one is great for learning to fly, but it can't do much and it's not really a challenge. By 'do much' I mean that without gps you can't program flight paths or return to base or whatever. You're also limited to 10m altitude. With no onboard memory card, any pictures or video are degraded by the wifi signal, so, as good as the camera is, unique high-altitude pictures or video are not as good as they could be. High speed mode is limited by how well you can see the drone, because the camera is always tilted down (and a little laggy) so it's impossible to fly by camera. Of course fixing all of this would pump up the price and you'd end up with a drone 5-10 x the price. Don't get me wrong, it connects well, it flies well, it takes pretty good pictures for perspectives that my camera can't get. It's pretty damn stable in low wind, using an undercarriage camera and other sensors for position stability. It's under 250g, so you're not forced to register it in the US. The screen controls are good enough that, if I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy the single-use T1d controller that can't do anything but the Tello.

BUYER BEWARE!! DO NOT BUY!!
Tello needs to get their stuff together. I have lost two tellos because of the stupid software programming these drones have. First of all if you select a setting of fast mode, it should stay in fast mode but it doesn't when you change batteries. Secondly, you should be able to disable auto landing mode. These two things made me lose two tellos because the wind overpowered the tello one time because of no fast mode and I lost wifi when the tello tried to autoland on top of a house. Tellos suck!!!!!!!!

One of the best electronics/borderline “toys” I’ve ever owned.
Check the roof, scout out land, make video memories. Many uses and very easy to control. Get at least 3 batteries. Time flies when your having fun (pun intended). Easy to control with iPhone (X is what I use with it). Recording pics/videos are very easy. Really cool to have in your arsenal of electronics. New hobby added to list!
