Built in partnership with Ryze Tech, the DJI Tello Drone (2019) is designed to be a fun and educational quadcopter drone. The 2019 edition features a larger and more robust form factor and includes a micro-USB cable. Its Intel processor enables it to perform exciting aerial tricks on a whim, all through smartphone control. Download the free Tello app and get going, with intuitive controls for entertaining flying maneuvers. The included battery will power up to 13 minutes of flight on a full charge.
At the front of the Tello is a camera capable of streaming 720p video back to your smartphone and capturing 5-megapixel photos in flight. The intelligent flight processor can coordinate camera movements for some custom shooting angles. The vision positioning system uses a downward-facing camera to ensure stable hovering when desired.
The Tello also includes four pairs of propellers and propeller guards. Multicolored top plates are available separately to customize the look of your drone.
Great for Beginners
Flying the Tello drone is easy. Just pull out your phone with the app and begin flying by literally tossing the drone in the air. For those feeling adventurous, the Tello is VR headset-compatible for FPV flying. Swipe on your smartphone to activate 8D flips for slick aerial moves. If you want more tactile control, connect a Bluetooth controller to your smartphone and fly more traditionally.
The DJI Tello drone can transmit 720p video or 5MP photos back to your smartphone from up to 330′ away using its dual antenna array. Electronic image stabilization helps keep your photos and videos steady. Coordinated flight moves let you capture short videos with ‘circle’, ‘360’, and ‘up-up-and-away’ styling for a professional touch.
Use Tello to Learn and Create
Ryze Tech made the DJI Tello drone programmable with Scratch, an MIT-developed visual coding system which allows kids and teens to learn the basics of programming while having fun. If you’re a more advanced user, you can also develop software applications using the Tello SDK.
Tello’s durable design features software and hardware protections, making it easy to fly with confidence.
- Auto takeoff/landing: Lift off or land with a single tap
- Low-battery protection: Alerts go off when your battery gets low
- Failsafe protection: Land safely, even if you lose connection
- Vision positioning system: Downward-facing camera facilitates precise hovering
