Python Programming - Drone ignoring most commands

I'm working on a uni project using a Tello drone, essentially using the camera to read the environment and automate movement. I've been successful in receiving the camera footage and analysing it, and can send it commands. It reacts as expected to liftoff and land commands, and even "down 80" to fly lower. However, it doesn't seem to respond to "forward 100" or "ccw 90", instead just hovering in place. I haven't tested it outside yet, so maybe it's because it's too dark indoors? It seemed to work once or twice, but I haven't been able to replicate that.

It seems similar to the issue discussed here

If anyone has any idea how I should approach this, I'd be very grateful.
 
It's hard to say what's going on without seeing your code. Does your script involve fully automated flight? If so, have you added sleep commands between your various movement commands? Without sleep commands your movement commands can follow one another so fast that the drone simply ignores them.
