Hello everybody,

I am planning to build a dashboard for all sensor data and the video stream of a Tello or Tello EDU drone. The idea is that the dashboard would display all data in "real-time" while I am flying the drone manually using a supported controller. I am planning to use python and the SDK in order to get the sensor data for the dashboard. Is it possible to connect the controller and the computer to the Tellos Wifi at the same time? The python program would only sent read commands to get the status while the controller will be used to control the drone.

Furthermore, I am not sure if I should go with the Tello or Tello EDU. I read that the Tello EDU supports a newer SDK, with more control commands but there are some "read" commands missing: https://tellopilots.com/threads/new-tello-edu-sdk.2514/ Which drone would you recommend for my use case?

Regards,

Does anybody know if the Tello EDU allows an API connection and a controller at the same time?
