Ryze Tello Camera

The drone has a 5MP camera with Electronic Image Stabilization. That gives the super stable footages.

The drone can record camera record videos at 720p @30fps. That is a dominant feature at this price range. The spark that is 5 times more expensive than the Tella can shoot video at the max quality of 1080p @30fps.

It gives a live preview at 720P HD with minimum response time in the preview. Overall, the camera on the Ryze Tello is best for the beginners and for fun to use.

Ryze Tello Design

Build quality:

The drone feels very light in hand. It weighs about 54 grams without the battery and 80 grams with the battery. The build quality of the drone is very good considering the price.

The Top cover of the drone is removable and it can easily replace by another top cover with the different-color. This gives us more options to customize the design of the drone.

We can see Tello branding on the top cover of the drone. They make the arms of the drone of plastic, and it is not foldable.

The drone also has a 3-inch propellers guard, it prevents the drone from crashers and helps the drone to fly indoor (inside the house, as when the drone will hit the walls it will first hit the propeller guard).

So, with the propellers guard on the drone is safer to fly indoor and outdoor.

Overview of the drone.

  • The drone has a multicolor LED status indicator
  • On the left side, we have a micro USB port for charging the battery
  • On the right side, we have a power button
  • The drone has got the vision positioning system on the bottom
  • It includes the IR LED, IR sensor, and camera in the center


As we have discussed earlier, the built quality of the drone is one of the best at this price level. But the important thing is the durability of the drone because as a beginner you are going to crash the drone several times.

And if the drone is not durable, the drone will not last long. The good thing about the drone is it is durable, and it comes with a few replacement propellers if you need them.

Flight time or battery life

The drone has a flight time of 13 minutes. That is a few minutes less than the Spark. At this price range, there is hardly any drone in the market that has 13 minutes of flight time. Charging the battery from 0 to 100% takes 90 minutes.

Flight Mode

The Ryze Tello has got six different flight modes, for instance, throw and go mode, flips mode, up and out mode, 360-degree mode, Circle mode, and Bounce mode.

  • Throw and Go mode: Throw the aircraft and it will take off and hover in a place.
  • Flips mode: Side on-screen to flip the aircraft. It can flip in eight different directions.
  • Up and Out: Records a short video while flying upwards and backward.
  • 360-degree mode: Records a short video while spinning in place 360 degrees.
  • Circle mode: Records the video while flying in a circle.
  • Bounce mode: Automatically fly up and down within 0.5 and 1.2 meters of a late surface below the aircraft.

Ryze Tello Controller

We can control the drone by the Tello app (available for android and IOS) and the remote controller that we get with the Boost Combo pack. The drone is super easy to control with the mobile and remote.

We can also control the flight Mode with the app Slow and Fast. It is comparable with the VR (DJI Googles). It has a Max bitrate of 4mbps. We can customize the photo quality from low to high.

The drone with the app controller has minimum latency and responds quickly to the command. It has returned to the home button.

The Drone is super stable while hovering, all because of the visual positioning system. The drone does not have a GPS system.

Ryze Tello Range

The drone had a maximum flight distance of 100 meters and a maximum flight height of 10 meters. The range is not that high as it is a beginner’s drone, and at this price, the drone is worth buying.

If you lose the signal in the drone, there is nothing to worry about it because the drone will automatically land safely.

Talking about the sound, it is quieter than the Spark but has more sound than other local drones.

It is a fun pack drone made for kids and beginners.

It’s an amazing little drone, it’s tiny, very portable, very easy to carry, and talking about the fight stability it is super stable.

The hovering system on the drone works great, and the VPS (vision positioning system) works very well. Talking about the camera quality, it may not be as good as this Spark and Mavic Mini, but considering the price, it’s doing a good job it’s acceptable.

At this price range, this is the best drone and if you ask me about the drone under $100, I would recommend you go with Ryze Tello.
