I bought one with the extra batteries, plus a controller and case (all for $135) for a good friend for Christmas and it really is an awesome little drone. You can also modify the 10 meter height limit to about 30 meters via an app, and for about $10 buy a range extender, that really makes this into a cool little flier! But yes, it is super tiny and lightweight, so it's not for windy days!!
Many of us have the larger drones and enjoy the Tello, too. I carry it around a lot when there is no wind on my rural property. It is so easy to launch quickly and get some nice photos and a higher perspective of the surroundings. I like my Tello because it is so simple yet takes great photos. It is quite durable, too, for a drone. You can toss it around, drop it, crash it and, if no prop is broken, fly it again with no issues. It's just a great toy. My Spark is great for serious flying in stronger breezes, still for close by views. My Mavic is for going to other pastures to check cows, water, calves, gates, water troughs, and the creeks. So all three have their nitch and the mighty little Tello is among them.
Yup, I have a Tello too and I absolutely love it! It is very different from the Spark, much lighter and simpler to use. It is a very good indoor drone, and it is decent for outdoor use. For outdoor use I recommend :
I did exactly the same thing! Had my tello up for sale after I bought the spark, but decided against it as it is just so much fun to fly around with it and not worry too much about crashing it (unlike my spark).Hi tello is a great starter drone... I had one for about two weeks as my first drone and liked it so much I bought a spark which I love even more..
Thanks a lot for the advice.Yup, I have a Tello too and I absolutely love it! It is very different from the Spark, much lighter and simpler to use. It is a very good indoor drone, and it is decent for outdoor use. For outdoor use I recommend :
1) a range extender
2) using an app to increase the maximum altitude up to 90 feet
3) use the sport mode when outdoors
4) don't fly in windy conditions
The photo quality is pretty good
The video quality is poor
All in all the Tello is a fantastic drone at a very good price.
