Labeled “The Most Fun Drone”, Tello is a small drone for those who are just starting to learn to fly drones. However, this does not mean that the Tello drone has the ability to make fun of it. How could it not be, looking further at the DJI Tello review, this drone apparently has Flight Stabilization technology which makes it much safer and easier to fly, even indoors.
Another unique thing about DJI Tello is its acrobatic capabilities in the air, live streaming and this drone can also program the airframe easily. Discussing further about the DJI Tello body design, the drone actually feels small compared to the DJI Spark. The reason is, DJI Tello has dimensions of only 98 x 92.5 x 41 mm and weighs only 80 grams. When compared to the DJI Spark, it is certainly wider. Interestingly, the DJI Tello is claimed to be the smallest drone among all the DJI series.
It doesn’t stop there, DJI Tello is also predicted to be similar to DJI Spark, both in terms of body and color. DJI Tello’s design even removes the landing gear and instead extends the base of the rotor as legs. Thanks to this, the DJI Tello really looks compact and very small so it can be flown more easily indoors. But with a body like that, DJI Tello seems more fragile to fly outdoors.
Even though it has a very small body, DJI Tello is actually somewhat smarter than DJI Spark. Just look at the Intel part that can make this drone fly directly from the palm of the hand. That is, you just need to throw it from your hand. Instantly this DJI Tello will fly freely in the air. This is also still equipped with a number of acrobatic movements and Flight Stabilization which can be considered quite safe. But of course there are things that have been reduced, one of the most striking is the quality of the DJI Tello’s shots, which is only 5 MP and can record videos up to 720p only.
Meanwhile, when compared to the DJI Spark itself, users can get Full HD footage recording up to 1080p and produce 12 MP photos. Then the duration of the flight itself is also cut to just 13 minutes. It’s 3 minutes shorter than the DJI Spark’s battery. Even so, this is a pretty good achievement for such a small drone. The speed is only 8 m/s and can only be flown outdoors if there is no wind at all.
Unlike other DJI series drones, DJI Tello can actually be used for small attractions. On the drone you will find a button to flip on the Controller Interface. There are also several flight modes, including quick 360-degree video recording and flying up in one smooth go.
Not only that, users can also program DJI Tello flight patterns by coding for those who can. This is because DJI Tello has a special coding tool called Scratch. This coding tool is ready to customize DJI Tello whenever you want. DJI Tello can even connect with VR and users can enjoy a full action experience in POV mode.
Then for the price itself it turns out that it doesn’t drain the bag, this cute drone is only priced at Rp. 1.6 million rupiah. Much cheaper than the price of the DJI Spark. This price is quite comparable to the capabilities offered, moreover the color choices are also very tempting.
