Slow movement ~15 seconds after takeoff

Hello,

I'm experiencing something I can't seem to find on the forum.

Using the Tello or TelloFPV app, I can take off just fine, the drone moves normally in all four directions for the first 10 to 15 seconds. After that, those lateral movements become much slower (the tello doesn't tilt that far over anymore) resulting in very slow movement. I get no errors at all.

Is this a known issue? Anything I can test or do?

Thanks

OK, had to look a bit further. :) Figured out it moves faster when higher, was being too safe and flying <1m above ground level.

The Tello behaves exactly the same with the original Ryze app because this is part of the Tello firmware. Nothing we can do about it.

Note also you may notice about 10s after takeoff the tello would have longer braking distance if u let the stick go when it is moving horizontally. Flagged by the guy above me and it was true.
