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.

I like it so far!

It’s a fun little entry-level drone and great for the price. The app is pretty straightforward and easy to use. There seems to be a decent amount of documentation to get you using the drone right away. Something that would be awesome is a self timer function for taking photos. It’s awkward to hold the phone and tap while trying to pose for a selfie. Either that or expose the camera functions in the SDK for DroneBlocks users.
