Ryze teams up with DJI to release $99 Tello drone





Ryze, a drone start-up company, teamed up with DJI and Intel to create Tello, a customizable toy drone built to be programmable. Tello was developed to be fun and engaging for kids and interested adults. This easy-to-fly UAV is controlled with an app, and it offers a feature that is unseen in drones at its $99 price range. The engineers at Ryze created this drone so that even kids can code it with an MIT-developed system called Scratch. Anyone can now fly for fun and learn the basics of programming with Tello.

Tello Features

Tello is powered with an Intel 14-core processor and features a DJI flight control system. Its flight time is rated at 13 minutes, and it can travel up to 328 feet away. Two antennas were added for video stability and real time HD video transmission. It can be operated with a smartphone or tablet via app. The camera can shoot 720p videos and capture 5 MP photos. It also has a built-in electronic image stabilization for clearer footage. Just like other toy drones, Tello can do flips, but it can be coded to do multiple flips with one command using Scratch. To get this UAV started, all one has to do is toss the 80 gram drone into the air. The top of Tello’s shell is detachable, so it can be customized. Compatibility with select third-party remote controllers and VR headset allows Tello to be flown like a video game.
