What Makes Tello the Most Fun Drone Ever


Want to know what makes the  Tello an absolute blast to fly? It’s probably all the top-tier features packed into its tiny body. So let’s take a look at what makes Ryzes’ new drone tick.

  • Tello App

Have you never piloted a drone? No problem! The Tello app makes everything extra easy for kids and adults alike. Even if you’re new to drones, you can just pull out your phone and fly with the intuitive control system. Impressive maneuvers can be performed with just a tap on the screen!


  • Extremely lightweight

This incredibly small drone fits in your palm and only weighs approximately 80g (propellers and battery included). However, its durable design combined with DJI’s flight technologies ensure that you can always fly with confidence. Just grab it from your bag and have fun.

  • Perform flying stunts

Feel like a Jedi! How cool it is to start flying by effortlessly tossing the Tello into the air with Throw&Go! But this is just for starters; you can also perform eight different flips by sliding your finger on the screen as well as letting it fly up and down from your hand in Bounce Mode.


  • Shoot quick videos with EZ Shots

With EZ Shots, you can quickly fly in three specific patterns: circle, 360, and Up&Away while recording short videos, all in one smooth motion thanks to Intel’s processor and electronic image stabilization. Plus, you can share them on social media directly from your smartphone.



  • Smartphone VR headset compatibility

Feeling adventurous? Tello can live stream video to compatible virtual reality (VR) headsets so that you can fly in breathtaking first-person view.


  • Safe to fly indoors

Tello is super safe with its software and hardware protections. With a single tap, it can takeoff/land automatically; its vision positioning system facilitates precise hovering; when the battery gets low, alerts will go off. Moreover, even if you lose the connection, the Tello can still land safely thanks to its failsafe protection.



  • 13 min flight time

Tello’s high-capacity battery offers an impressively long flight time, giving it one of the longest flight times in the mini-drone category.


  • Programmable

You can learn the basics of programming while having fun. By using Scratch, an MIT-developed coding system, you will be able to program your own flight patterns with the Tello. If you’re a more advanced user, you can use the Tello SDK to develop software applications. You will find Tello the smallest yet smartest drone you’ll ever fly.
