Get this drone for your kids, and maybe yourself too.

If you’re familiar with the Parrot Mambo, the DJI Tello is very similar but even better. It has a slightly longer fight time (13 minutes in ideal conditions), better build quality, and two cameras. Just like the Mambo, the Tello has a camera on the bottom that is used for keeping the drone from drifting. This means you won’t have to fight the drone to get it hovering for the first time. It will simply takeoff and hover effortlessly. Thanks to the intel processor, there is also a second camera that faces forward for FPV flying and streaming live video back to your smartphone.

If you like to tinker, the Tello gives you full control.

If you or your kids want to learn programming for the first time, Tello is great for that too. You can learn to program visually using blocks, or the more traditional way using real languages like Apple’s Swift and Python. This means you can start from ground zero with no experience and learn to code, or utilize the Power of Python and thousands of existing libraries to do almost any task you can think of!

There’s only one thing that the Parrot Mambo has that you won’t find on the Tello. Legos. Although DJI shows Lego blocks in their advertising photos, the Tello is not Lego block compatible like the Mambo is. For adults, this isn’t something you should care about, but if you’re buying the Tello for a kid who likes Lego, you might want to consider the Mambo instead.

Make sure you get the right version.

There are two versions of this drone. Tello is the standard version and Tello EDU is the version with all of the programming features. Tello EDU also has image recognition for identifying the Tello Mission Pads. These special pads allow you to program Tello to do something when it sees each unique pad, or use it as a tracking marker for more precise flying and navigation.

If you have more than one Tello EDU, you can even program them to fly in a swarm and perform synchronized acrobatics all from a single device.

If you want to get into drones or learn programing in a fun and easy way, We think the Tello EDU is the best way to go. It’s easy to use with a familiar DJI interface, it has two cameras, you can program it to do whatever you want, and it’s one of the higher quality toy drones out there. That’s why it’s #1 on our list of toy drones.
