DJI TELLO is an app-controlled ready-to-fly drone suitable for both experienced and inexperienced pilots. It’s the first successful project after three drone manufacturers namely Intel, Ryze, and DJI teamed up. The idea behind DJI Tello was to create an easy to handle, reliable, and fun drone for kids and adults. It has an awesome range of over 300 feet and small weight of 3 ounces. When professionally steered, it can fly for 13 minutes nonstop while reaching high speeds of up to 17 miles per hour.
Tello’s dual antenna transmission makes it one of the best small yet affordable drones for taking clear and stable videos. The camera has the capability to shoot 720p HD quality videos with 30 frames per second and 5 megapixels photos. The most amazing thing about this drone is that it records the videos and stills directly to your smartphone rather than a memory card. So, you can instantly access, modify, and share the videos. The drone lacks a gimbal but includes an electronic video stabilizer that smoothens and stabilizes your shots to give really amazing videos and stills. At the bottom end, this great drone features vision positioning sensors that stabilize and keeps the drone in position.
Also, an awesome feature of DJI Tello is the built-in EZ shots. These automated flight sequences set your drone such that it will automatically record shots without the need for human intervention. Though small and simple, the drone includes multiple flight modes. One of the best is the 8D flips mode that lets you fly your drone in 8 divergent directions by simply swiping your screen. The built-in VPS ensures that your drone will hover stably in the air regardless of how quickly and often you make the flips.
Though designed like a beginner drone, it feels and works more like a professional drone thanks to the perfectly-executed smartphone app and the Intel-powered chip. It features auto takeoff and auto-land features and can land directly to your palm. The Scratch coding system on the drone lets you write programs for different functions.
