DJI and Ryze Teamed Up to Design an Amazing Low-cost Drone - DJI Ryze Tello
It’s one of the most anticipated drones of 2018. The renowned brand DJI and the Chinese startup Ryze have joined forces to design and produce a breathtaking aircraft aimed at the younger audience as well as adults.
The design is very similar to the widely popular DJI Spark. As you can see in the image the frame is black and white and made of ABS plastic, a lightweight and resistant material. The drone only weighs 80g and has the dimensions of 3.86 x 3.64 x 1.61 inches (9.80 x 9.25 x 4.10 cm).
As expected from any DJI product, Tello comes with a set of useful features for a fun and safe flight. Namely, it features Auto Takeoff and Landing, Low Battery and Failsafe Protection, Throw & Go (start flying by tossing it into the air), 8D Flips (slide on screen to perform cool aerial stunts), Bounce Mode (flies up and down from your hand automatically) and Vision Positioning System (precise hovering). On top of all these awesome features, you will be surprised to know DJI Tello features an Intel 14-core processor. But wait, there’s more! DJI Tello is programmable with Scratch, an MIT-developed block-based visual coding system for kids and teenagers to program software applications for Tello!
A DJI drone wouldn’t be complete without a powerful camera and Tello is no exception. This amazing little quadcopter features a built-in 5MP camera with electronic image stabilization. The camera also features EZ Shots (record videos with Circle, 360 and Up & Away functionality). On top of this, the camera also transmits Live Video (FPV) and is compatible with VR Headsets.
Except controlling via a RC controller, Tello also makes use of the pilot’s smartphone to work as a remote controller. This is done through a free to download app (available for Android and iOS). The application UI (user interface) is very user-friendly and simple to use. It gives access to all the drone’s features and displays the Live Video directly on the screen.
Flight Time and Control Range
DJI Ryze Tello’s specifications surprised the drone community. For such an affordable aircraft it features an astonishing 13-minute max flight time thanks to the 3.8V 1100mAh battery. This flight time is above average when comparing to other same price drones. The maximum control range is around 100 meters.
