DJI Tello Boost Combo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Easy to operate.
This DJI Tello Boost Combo offers a cost-effective way to learn the ropes of drone piloting and have a little fun while you're at it. In addition to the drone, you get two extra batteries and a charging hub so you can stay in the air longer. The combo also includes one set of replacement propellers.
The Tello quadcopter couldn't be easier to launch: when it's active, all you have to do is toss it in the air and it starts hovering. Install the free DJI Tello app on your smartphone, and you can slide your finger on the screen to learn the drone's basic flight characteristics, or cause it to perform fun flips and other advanced aerial maneuvers. Then, just tap the screen to bring the 'copter gently back down to earth.
DJI had safety in mind when they designed the Tello. Included propeller guards protect fingers and faces against accidents, and a built-in collision detection system helps keep the drone from crashing while you're learning the controls. There's also a low battery warning, precise vision positioning system, and a fail-safe that lands the drone safely even if your remote control loses connection.
DJI combines fun and education in the free app, which features a user-friendly interface and handy instructions to help you get started. Tello is also compatible with Scratch, a simple coding system developed by MIT that lets kids and adults alike learn how to write custom programs for drones.

Easy to operate.
This was a Christmas gift for my 11 year old, and boy what a gift. This thing has had us captivated since charging and syncing to his iPhone. Buying myself one in future
Great drone takes great pictures easy to use
Aerial Mini-Drone: The DJI Tello is an aerial mini-drone that features a Vision Positioning System, an onboard camera, and simple control through the Tello app on your compatible Apple iOS or Android OS device. The Tello is safe to fly indoors and outdoors under windless conditions. The Tello also is not waterproof and should not be flown in raining or snowy conditions.
Vision Positioning System: The Vision Positioning System helps the Tello aerial mini-drone to maintain its current position. With the help of the Vision Positioning System, the Tello can hover in place more precisely and fly indoors or outdoors in windless conditions. The main components of the Vision Positioning System are a camera and a 3D infrared module located on the underside of the aircraft.
Note: The Vision Positioning System is activated automatically when the aircraft is turned on. No further action is required. The Vision Positioning System is only effective when the aircraft is at altitudes of 1'-32.8' (0.3-10 m) and works best at altitudes of 1' to 19.7' (0.3 to 6 m). If the aircraft is beyond this range, the Vision Positioning function may be affected, so extra caution is required.
Simple Control: The Tello from DJI can be controlled using the virtual joysticks in the Tello app or using a compatible remote controller.
Flight Modes: In addition to manual flight control, the Tello from DJI has various Intelligent Flight Modes that can be used to make the aerial mini-drone perform maneuvers automatically. The Tello also has a flight mode that it falls back to in certain circumstances.
Note: Ensure that all flights are carried out indoors or in an open area with no wind. The flight altitude is limited to 32.8' (10 m) and flight distance is limited to 328' (100 m).
Auto Take-Off & Landing: There are two auto landing modes - Tap to Land and PalmLand. In Tap to Land mode, the aircraft lands automatically. To use the PalmLand mode, place your palm under the aircraft, then tap to confirm and the aircraft will land on your palm and stop its motors.
Note: Only land the aircraft on flat surfaces. Do not land the aircraft over water, grass or sand. When using PalmLand, ensure your palm is right under the aircraft and keep your palm flat.
Built-in Camera: The Tello's built-in camera with high-quality image processor captures 2592x1936 (5MP)photos and 1280x720 (720p) videos. The Tello's Electronic Image Stabilization feature enables it to consistently capture clear images. The photos and videos can be viewed in the Tello app and copied to a folder in your mobile device (you can export files from your compatible mobile device as needed). Maximum video transmission range is approximately (328') 100m, but that range may vary according to your environment
Note: The Tello does not offer an internal memory to store photos and videos. It also does not support external memory cards.
EZ Shots: With EZ Shots, you can fly in three specific patterns while recording short videos.
Propeller Guards: The Tello Propeller Guards can be used to reduce the risk of harm or damage to people or objects resulting from accidental collisions with Tello aircraft.
Rechargeable Battery: The Tello is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-polymer (LiPo) battery which provides up to 13 minutes of flight time (3 batteries are included). You can charge asingle battery inside the Tello via the microUSB port on the aircraft using an external USB/AC power adapter (sold separately). You can charge multiple batteries using the the included Tello Battery Charging Hub and a USB/AC power adapter (sold separately).
Note: Maximum flight time was tested in windless conditions flying at a consistent 9mph (15kph).
Programming: The Tello is programmable with Scratch, an MIT-developed coding system that allows you to learn the basics of programming. If you're a more advanced user, you can also develop software applications for the Tello using the Tello SDK.
Firmware Updates: You can update the Tello's firmware via the Tello app on your Apple iOS or Android device.
FAA Rules & Regulations: Please familiarize yourself with the FAA's rules & regulations for unmanned aircraft systems before flying your drone. Click here for more details.
