"error Not Joystick" from Tello API

I've been playing around with the Tello API, based on the official Ryze documentation and implemented by the python library microlinux/tello.
I record the Tello responses after I send it Control commands.
The documentation specifies only "OK" or "error" as possible responses.
I sent a flip forward command ("flip f" ), and got as response "error Not joystick", although the flip was executed.
Has anyone ever noticed this error message?
Does anyone know where it comes from and how to avoid it?

Thanks, Luca

That's right, thank you!

I found that someone else built another library (DJITelloPy) that supports sending commands either one-way (without waiting for response) or two-way (waiting for response). I still haven't tested it, but had a good look at the code, and it seems well written.

The previous command was not completed.

+ delay or wait for “ok”
As you say the"error Not Joystick" can be solved adding more delay at the previous actions and something similar happens with the function "curve" but the error in this one is "error radius is too large" but the solution can be the same or changing the radius values
