Description

The Tello Drone (powered by DJI) is a starter model drone for both adults and children. With this drone, you can easily learn how to control and coordinate it. If you throw the drone into the air, it automatically starts flying. You can control the drone via a smartphone or tablet. Just tap the screen and have the drone perform stunts like a somersault. With the Scratch program, you can set movements the drone needs to perform in advance. This way, children learn programming in an accessible way. If you connect the Tello to a VR headset, it's as if you're flying along. Thanks to the sensors and protective parts, the drone can withstand drops and bumps. It uses the sensors to land safely when the battery runs out.

    Laws and regulations

    From 2021, new European drone legislation will apply. This means that drone pilots must register themselves if they own a drone that weighs more than 250 grams or has a camera. They'll receive an operating number that needs to be attached on your drone and clearly visible. This drone weighs less than 250 grams, so you don't need a course.

Conclusion: For what this drone offers you, €100 is a bargai

  • Very stable inside and out.
  • Hand landing and trow&go
  • No controller.

After a break I went back into drones and wanted to start with a simple but still quite serious drone. No €20 drone from, for example, the local toy store. I came across this Tello drone through youtube. Because it is powered by DJI, I had confidence in it right away and that has proved right. It flies very stable. Some people think it's because of the GPS, but the Tello doesn't have that at all. haha. The soil sensors are of extremely good quality. This allows it to fly stably. Even if there is some wind. Flying via your mobile works well, but sometimes you still miss the controller. No matter how cheap it is. I have currently ordered one of those touchscreen controller pads. Let's see if that removes the need for a controller (gamesir Td1 ala €40). The video signal stutters quite quickly and so do your recordings. Because they are stored directly on your mobile. Even at 6 meters on an open field you will quickly get hiccups. However, purchasing a simple USB WiFi repeater (€7) and power bank (€10) solves this video stutter and you get 2x more range (200m). You can connect the drone with an app other than the Tello app called DroneBlocks. With this app you can put together a series of puzzle pieces to create a series of commands that the Tello will then execute such as: ascend to 5 meters, turn 180 degrees. Descend 2 meters and flip forward then land. Very fun to play with. Battery is good for a 10 minute flight. I immediately ordered an extra battery and battery charger from Mr. Alie. This way I can charge 4 batteries at the same time instead of 1 that you charge by placing it in your drone and then connecting it to a USB adapter with a micro USB cable. You can land the drone on your hands or on the floor. Take-off is done by sliding a slider from left to right after pressing the take-off button. You can also take off with the trow and Go option. After activating the props will spin very weakly which is the sign for you to throw it. It will then automatically continue to ascend until the ascent level is reached. The drone can flip very easily in a special flip mode by simply swiping one side in the middle of your screen. And there are many other options.

The ultimate kids (and beginners) drone!

  • Fantastic toys
  • Perfect step-up drone
  • Manual only online (but sustainable..)

great toys. For young and old. You can perfectly learn to fly before buying a “real” large (expensive) drone. DJI, so top quality and support for a reasonable price. The combo pack comes with 3 batteries, good for almost 45 minutes flying time! One more battery and you can fly non-stop (charging takes about an hour and 3 fit in the charging station at the same time). The batteries are charged 1 by 1 (the fullest first), so even with 3 batteries you only have to take a 15 minute break ;-)) Highly recommended! Top advice and service also from Coolblue.

A special product for little

  • The price
  • The features
  • Charging the battery, charged or not yet?

If you have an opinion about a device, the price is the basis of the rating. You can't expect miracles for this amount and yet. It takes some getting used to at first, the reactions via your mobile seem a bit unpredictable but when you realize that you have to take it easy you are flying, it is a bit difficult to activate the photo/video function if you have a tablet I definitely use that instead of your cellphone. Just be careful, he only looks down so you really have to be aware of where your drone is. If he crashes, don't panic he can take a beating, just too crazy of course. For a beginner a very nice stepping stone to the real thing and believe me you will do someone else a great favor with it. Add image unfortunately doesn't work!

Good drone to start with

  • Easy to use
  • Quick to install
  • Although battery life is average for a drone, it is still fairly short. Definitely recommend buying extra batteries

Good value for money and a very good drone to start with. For the price, it delivers very good photos. Of course, for this price, you can't expect it to do the same as an expensive drone. Still recommended.

Wonderful and stable starter!

  • ready. Set. go.
  • Propeller Protection
  • Wifi range

My DJI Spark is out of action for a while and while waiting (and a bit for the kids too) I bought this budget-friendly drone. Super fast delivery, unpack, charge and ready. Operation as expected and so already had a lot of fun. This Tello flies really super stable, both indoors and outdoors! A small minus is the WiFi range, but this is also as expected with this type of device. Recommended.
