Tello has been released for some time now, yet even a few months later it’s my favorite drone under $100.

With the new version called “iron man edition” you’ll basically get the same package byt with a cooler named app and a look change.

The popular character played by Robert Downey Jr. comes to life and lets you play with your own Avengers drone that you can buy and fly around the house.

Even more you can program it yourself and feel like the genius that almost defeated Thanos.

The Tello is made by Ryze, a relatively new drone company, but has been popularized by the use of parts provided by DJI, which  is the biggest drone company on the market. Even the guys at Intel have their part in building this drone.

What to look for in a camera drone

Image stability

You should look for the following in a drone if you want good image stability:

  • A 2 or preferably 3 axis gimbal is the best possible way to stabilize a camera. It’s usually found in more expensive builds.
  • Electronic image stabilization. Drones like Parrot Bebop 2 or even the cheaper Tello have it.
  • Get yourself a GO Pro drone and use a very stable Action cam with electronic or optical image stabilization!

Battery Life

This is generally valid for any type of drone. How long it stays in the air is even more important for making sure you take a certain shot, usually with more expensive camera drones in professional setttings.

You should be looking for over 15 minutes of battery life when it comes to drones that you want to use to make money or create videos with. Taking the right picture also requires some time, and you don’t want to be in a hurry when you do it.

Drone GPS and stabile flight

You can take very nice shots with a drone that only has the previous items we’ve talked about, but if you want to be stress free… having a stable drone or GPS is the way to go.

I’m not even getting into the ability to take timelapses, but having a solid stable drone is necesary for not begin stressed by the wind taking it away while you change the camera settings.

Tello Price and specs

This new tello is slightly more expensive than the original one, but I’m sure they will reduce the prices in time.

I recommend the folowing uses for the Tello:

  1. As a selfie drone (take amazing 4k photos in a park or the places you visit)
  2. As a learning drone for the basics ( I would use a cheaper drone for this, but the tello has the advantage of amazing flight stability)
  3. As a video toy drone ( the stabilized video is quite amazing to have at this price, although it won’t compare to something like a DJI spark for example)

If we don’t only judge by price we should take note of a few other drones that serve pretty much the same purpose, and can actually be cheaper.

I have written an article comparing the Tello to the XIaomi Mitu, which at the time was its main competitor. However, recently I have found out a similar drone made by an action cam company.

The drone is called Thieye Dr.X and even though it’s cheaper I got some really amazing results when comparing it to the two mentioned previously.

How good is the camera?

Tello has a camera that sets it apart from many drones previously. It’s capacity to take photos is impressive and the video is stabilized as mentioned earlier.

Not only that, it comes with quite a long batery life of 12 minutes. It’s very long considering the next best thing when it comes to battery life is twice the price.
