I am programming the Tello. If there is no interaction Tello stops its server within a few minutes.
I have to reconnect it an awsome nu ber of times during programming development.
Can I keep the server alive someway ?

Probably Tello turns off from overheating. Try using cooling pad, fan or at least start motors (without taking off) to use its own propellers as "fans".

Thanks for answering my question
Its not a problem of overheating.
It is the general problem that if you power on the Tello and you give no instructions for about a minute or 2 it turns off, then I have go out of the python programming environment and to couple the wifi of IOS (iphone X , or Ipad Pro) again to Tello-plus of the Xiaomi repeater and I have to power on the Tello again.

That’s not so nice if this happens 10 times an hour

Sorry to dispute your word but yes, it IS a problem of overheating. @briest is correct.

Without a fan Tello will turn itself off in a minute or two.

As an experiment, I turned mine on with a small USB-powered fan blowing on it. It has stayed on for over 24 minutes as of right now.

Put a fan blowing on yours and you'll see.
