DJI Tello drone python interface using the official Tello SDK and Tello EDU SDK. Yes, this library has been tested with the drone. Please see example.py for a working example controlling the drone as a remote controller with the keyboard and the video stream in a window.
Tested with Python 3.6, but it also may be compatabile with other versions.
Feel free to contribute!
Install through git clone
$ pip install --upgrade pip $ git clone https://github.com/damiafuentes/TelloSDKPy.git $ cd TelloSDKPy $ pip install -r requirements.txt
Sometimes you need to update the virtual environment indexes and skeletons in order for the
example.py file to work with
pygame. If you are working with PyCharm, this can be done to
File > Invalidate Caches
Install through pip
DEPRECATED: The python package at PyPi library is not maintained anymore. I would recommend to install it through
$ pip install djitellopy
from TelloSDKPy.djitellopy import Tello import cv2 import time tello = Tello() tello.connect() tello.takeoff() tello.move_left(100) tello.rotate_counter_clockwise(45) tello.land() tello.end()
Example using pygame and the video stream
Please see example.py.
The controls are:
- T: Takeoff
- L: Land
- Arrow keys: Forward, backward, left and right.
- A and D: Counter clockwise and clockwise rotations
- W and S: Up and down.
Only for Tello EDU's.
from TelloSDKPy.djitellopy import TelloSwarm swarm = TelloSwarm.fromIps([ "192.168.178.42", "192.168.178.43", "192.168.178.44" ]) swarm.connect() swarm.takeoff() # run in parallel on all tellos swarm.move_up(100) # run by one tello after the other swarm.sequential(lambda i, tello: tello.move_forward(i * 20)) # making each tello do something unique in parallel swarm.parallel(lambda i, tello: tello.move_left(i * 100)) swarm.land() swarm.end()
- If you are using the
streamoncommand and the response is
Unknown commandmeans you have to update the Tello firmware. That can be done through the Tello app.
- Mission pad detection and navigation is only supported by the Tello EDU.
- Connecting to an existing wifi network is only supported by the Tello EDU.
- When connected to an existing wifi network video streaming is not available.
