DJI announces Iron Man edition of Tello drone


DJI has announced a new Iron Man edition of the Tello drone it created in partnership with Ryze Tech.

The Tello Iron Man Edition boasts all the same specs as the original Tello but comes with a new body design that is inspired by the superhero Iron Man’s iconic armor.

The Tello Iron Man Edition also uses a new flight control app that features Iron Man’s AI assistant, Friday. Per DJI:

The new Tello Hero App offers an immersive experience when flying Tello Iron Man Edition. Learn the fundamental skills of flying through training missions as a new recruit of Stark Industries’ PILOT program with the help of FRIDAY, Iron Man’s AI assistant. Providing guided voice instructions for each mission, FRIDAY helps teach basic flying, camera operation and how to use the intelligent flight modes by dodging incoming missiles and tracking potential suspects.

Heroes-in-training can operate the Iron Man Tello several ways including using a mobile device with the Tello Hero App, Tello App, Tello EDU App or Swift Playground App, or by connecting it with a compatible third-party Bluetooth remote control. Aspiring pilots seeking a more in-depth experience can program the drone to fly custom flight paths and maneuvers with simple and popular coding languages such as Scratch, Swift and Python.

Tello Iron Man Edition is powered by DJI’s leading flight control technology that enables stable flying and multiple interactive flight modes. Tello Iron Man Edition uses an HD camera capable of recording 5-megapixel photos and 720p video with real-time video transmission to the mobile device. Users can take advantage of “EZ shot” smart functions including 360° Video and Circle as well as pre-programmed flight modes like 8-Direction Flips and Throw & Go. Additionally, Tello Iron Man comes with soft propellers, propeller guards, a collision detection system and low battery protection features which promote safe and responsible flight.

The Tello Iron Man Edition is priced at $129/€139/£129 and comes with one Tello Iron Man Edition drone, two sets of spare propellers, one battery and a USB charging cable.
