This is a generic bluetooth controller and NOT meant for the drone specifically.... Not really a deal since these are $30 on amazon brand new....

Not really 'generic' since it's not only branded/labeled but also well reviewed to work perfectly fine with the Tello with the ADDED ADVANTAGE over the Tello-only GameSir T1D that you can use it for games. Also, the controller you linked to is different, this one is $40 on Amazon and is listed here: https://www.amazon.com/Deco-Gear-...B07G7DBK3Z

This deal is also available from BuyDig via eBay -

I cancelled my order from earlier this afternoon for the Gamesir T1D and am buying this instead for the added functionality. Thanks OP!

For Android at least, the only controller that works natively with the official Ryze Tello app [google.com] is the Gamesir T1D. However if you spend ~$6 on the 3rd party Tello FPV app [tellopilots.com] (which is better IMO) then just about any gamepad that connects to your android device works with some configuration. It's also made by someone in the Tello community who you can provide direct feedback to. No idea about iOS.

I can say this much:
It works perfectly with the TelloFPV Android app connected via either Bluetooth or USB OTG. I haven't tried it with the official Tello app.

It also acts as a standard input device in Android. I haven't tried it with anything else but I suspect it is not Tello specific based on the fact it acts as a standard Bluetooth input device.

The first time I bought am open box one a couple of months ago I paid $15 and ended up getting a brand new factory sealed controller. The second one I bought last week for $20 was in a previously opened box but the controller looked essentially new.

Just tested it with the official Ryze Tello app (v1.3.0.0).

It worked just fine out of the box. It is identified as "Gamesir-T1GCM" in the app.
