DRONE HACKS / UPGRADES & MODS: Franken-Tello – The DJI Tello / Eachine E013 Hybrid FPV Drone

Yup, just like Doctor Victor Frankenstein did, in this video I transplant vital organs from one drone corpse to another, then … add electricity! The results are equal parts Monstrous and Awesome!

I decided I wanted to do some real FPV with my DJI Tello, so I surgically removed (unplugged) the FPV camera from the Eachine E013, then implanted it into the DJI Tello. Let me know what you think of the results!

The FPV footage is just the 720p feed from the Tello camera, but it’s pretty much what I saw! Only I saw it in real time πŸ™‚

5:00 – PRO TIP – Stripping Fine Wire

8:56 – I SUCK at soldering

13:35 – VELCRO to the rescue!
14:54 – HOT GLUE
18:10 – TEST FLIGHT !!!!!

    Kool mod bud…Well done….Thanx 4 sharing….πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜€πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

  3. reddog drones on February 29, 2020 at 3:42 am

    good easy job,but pre tin your wires first and apply heat shrink (slip)over the wires prior to soldering them would have made a even easier job and safer too bro .but just starting out you did well my friend

  4. Π”ΠΌΠΈΡ‚Ρ€ΠΈΠΉ Ясногурский on February 29, 2020 at 3:42 am

    What best battery mods for Tello?

  5. RICK HALBUR on February 29, 2020 at 3:43 am

    Thanks Asgard looks like something I may try Thank you

  6. Electronics circuit world rsr on February 29, 2020 at 3:43 am

    Nice

  7. Ramiro Capozzi on February 29, 2020 at 3:45 am

    How much distance can the fpv camera can get?

  8. Jon Collinson on February 29, 2020 at 3:49 am

    Nice idea man!

  9. RiderKK on February 29, 2020 at 3:50 am

    Nice video , but turn off background music while you are talking. I could not concentrate on your voice

  10. Jesse Lopez Drones on February 29, 2020 at 3:51 am

    Nice video buddy , that mod certainly worked out well πŸ™‚ Weren’t you bloody frozen sat out with just a short sleeved tee ? I shivered for ya !! Thumbs up mate πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  13. Julian Shuster on February 29, 2020 at 3:53 am

    Why not just buy an AIO FPV camera with some cheap Eachine goggles? Would’ve totalled out lower than getting an E013 and extracting the camera.

  14. None Ya on February 29, 2020 at 3:54 am

    That’s a pretty cool upgrade I know I’ll definitely be using that lighter trick

  15. Matt North, Northeast Drone Productions on February 29, 2020 at 3:57 am

    That’s so cool. Man you love loading the tello up with gadgets, awesome!

  16. GG Adamss on February 29, 2020 at 3:57 am

    Excellent modπŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

  24. Berk Can on February 29, 2020 at 4:09 am

    I would definitely cut case at top so that put camera just inside on casing to have low profile and more compact view

  25. ROJO Droner on February 29, 2020 at 4:09 am

    Awesome job Hugh

  26. The InnerPalace Mind on February 29, 2020 at 4:10 am

    Congratulations buddy! Great idea!!! πŸ‘πŸ˜€

  27. MicoGhost TheOldCodger on February 29, 2020 at 4:11 am

    What a fun project! Thanks for sharing.

  28. Gummy Bear on February 29, 2020 at 4:13 am

    Nice video. Couple of comments. It would be better to mount the Lipo on top as it blocks the airflow of the Tello if mounted at the bottom. The video feed should be better from the FPV camera as compared to the Tello camera due to Wifi transmission slack. Use a Goggle with built in DVR for recording and we would be happy campers. Happy flying

  29. Π”ΠΌΠΈΡ‚Ρ€ΠΈΠΉ Ясногурский on February 29, 2020 at 4:13 am

    May be you know some examples how convert such types of motors for brushless? Thx

  30. VAN CITY RC on February 29, 2020 at 4:14 am

    I agree the Source is disappointing, I miss the good old days of Radio Shack

  31. THOMAS FISKE on February 29, 2020 at 4:16 am

    Painful watching you solder. Here’s a tip…FLUX.

  32. Jayjayhooks on February 29, 2020 at 4:17 am

    Hey, I’m new to cameras and drones. Quick question – is it simply a better quality camera that you installed or is better because you are dividing the processing needed between two devices?

  33. Rob Fraser on February 29, 2020 at 4:17 am

    Wow that wire trick is awesome

  34. bigboxhead on February 29, 2020 at 4:19 am

    Great video really enjoyed it.But one thing is driving me crazy… You sound just like Nicolas cage surely I can’t be the only one that thinks thatπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  35. Jhonny Chacha on February 29, 2020 at 4:23 am

    I was just thingking of a glue gun when he said rubber band lol!

  36. ORGANIZED CoNfUsioN on February 29, 2020 at 4:24 am

    Thanks for the lighter trick, I wish I knew that when I was working on my RC helicopter. Very cool.

  37. glenesis on February 29, 2020 at 4:25 am

    First? Wow..

    Good one, Asgard! Happy Thor’s Day!

  38. leon fernando on February 29, 2020 at 4:25 am

    I suck at soldering to we are on the same page LIKE ONE LITTLE SKEE ON YOUR ARM YOU GOTTA REDO IT HARD

  39. ara on February 29, 2020 at 4:29 am

    I have a suggestion what about installing 4 propellers blade

  40. Kerry Borgne on February 29, 2020 at 4:31 am

    Nice job…one quick question. How did the added weight of the battery and the camera affect the Tello’s flying time?

  41. THOMAS FISKE on February 29, 2020 at 4:31 am

    Where did you get the orange props?

  42. SkyPilot on February 29, 2020 at 4:34 am

    Great stuff. Thanks for dropping by my live stream today.!

  43. Matthew Bermudez on February 29, 2020 at 4:35 am

    Re: Electricians trick. Probably heated a shrink wrap too much and peeled it all apart. Tada.

  44. All Things M3 on February 29, 2020 at 4:36 am

    Excellent upgrade sir! I am going to do that to mine. I love the Tello such a great drone especially for the inexpensive price. Thanks for doing this. Adds a new cool feature to it.

  45. The Grumpy Vlogger on February 29, 2020 at 4:36 am

    This is awesome what you’re doing. It was fun being on the panel with you Today. Also if I offended you on there I do apologize. Sometimes my Grumpiness gets me going and the rant’s take over. Always a pleasure seeing you my friend. Have a great weekend. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ₯΄πŸ₯΄β˜˜οΈ

  46. Pixies Channel on February 29, 2020 at 4:37 am

    Way to go buddy, Looks awesome, I can’t wire a plug without instructions let alone put a camera on a drone, Go Tello.

  47. Earle63 on February 29, 2020 at 4:38 am

    Brilliant!πŸ‘

  48. Felipe Armel on February 29, 2020 at 4:38 am

    Interesting. I’ve been flown fpv using stock cΓ’mera, vrbox and Tello FPV android App. I noted a lag, but in my opiniom it was satisfatory, regarding default distances and quad speed. Regards

  49. Pda007 vlogs and Entertainment on February 29, 2020 at 4:39 am

    Can you do a battery hack just so that the Tello flies for a longer time and can you also do a flying range hack so that the drone flies higher? Please do this video
