Worked fine.

I’ve owned this drone for 2 years now and didn’t want it. Not that big into drones. Tried to sell it and the guy said it wouldn’t fly. So I looked up these reviews on the app and saw how everyone said the app was basically broken these days. So I refunded the buyer bc I felt bad. I decided to try it myself just for kicks. Honestly I got everything to work. I was really impressed actually. My standards for drones may be different but I was happy with how it worked. I had expected it to not work at all lol. I don’t know if I would recommend it for drone enthusiasts tho but for my novice experience it was fine. Hope this helps. Just wanted to put my 2 cents on here bc I saw so many negative reviews on it. At one point it did tell me to connect the drone through the app but when I tabbed back into the app after connecting it wouldn’t work. After connecting I had to actually close and reboot the app and then it worked fine

Needs to be calibrated

I had the same problem with video until I went back to the store where I bought my drone. The owner was knowledgeable (more than Tello Cust Serv) and had the same issue from his iPhone until he went into settings and calibrated my drone mid-flight. Then video recording started to work normally. On my iPhone (X Max) it then worked without any further calibration. This should be fixed or at least mentioned in the manual. And tech support should know about this at the least! Even better would be a software update that would calibrate automatically, to relieve us of all this frustration.
The drone itself is awesome for the size and price.

Video issues

Using my Xs on the latest iOS, Tello Firmware and app update. My Tello loses connection and hovers 9/10 when I finish a video. I’ve tested different bitrates and quality as well as short videos, deleting the app, factory resetting the Tello... just about everything I can. Ryze support chat told me it was possibly because the iPhone Xs and Xr aren’t technically supported but the X is. I’m sick of there being a break in communication almost every time I end a recording!

Please update the app and resolve this or let folks know what the issue is, I could still return the Tello if this is a hardware compatibility issue.

Other than this major issue(the main reason I bought it was for short videos) the drone is really great. Incredibly smooth flight, love the MFi controller support, great battery life for how well it performs, and the app works pretty well in most aspects.
