Hello, i´m a 41Y old, lucky owner of a Tello EDU in Germany. I bought this drone to learn a bit about programming. For the first exercises i use the Tello EDU App on my Samsung Tab A tablet. I noticed some difficulties now.
First of all most of the time the EDU is performing the program with a little break between the commands. eg. Go Left, it waits 2-5 sec, go back ...
But Sometimes it performes the programm without a break.
What i also noticed was that it was not responding to the "Flip" command, while the simulation does it well.
Sometimes when i try to rearrange the programm the last "Block" always jumpes up to the second command!
As i´m absolutely new to coding i have no clue what might be the cause.
Bad APP? Bad Drone? Bad WLAN connection?
Maybe some of you have some ideas.
Thanks

try python or swift playgrounds, I use python programming to control the Tello.

My plan was to learn step by step as i have absolutely no coding background. First some basics to get a clue of the possibilities. Then i wanted to get deeper into the matter with python.
To start with the way more advanced step brings frustration. I learned that lesson when i first tried coding a Anki Cozmo Robot with Python. It was just frustrating so i never did any further trys
again and my Cozmo is sitting in it´s cradle since then :-(

Cozmo owner, too :) My new Tello now also sits next to the Cozmo...

If by chance you are an iPad owner (and capable of some basic English) you definitely should try Apple's (Swift) Playgrounds. There is a clear and easy to understand learning path to master programming your Tello step by step. In addition, you may also use the mission pads of the Edu Tello to do some cool extra stuff (mission pad download link).

Flips are not executed if the battery level is not high enough.

Probably solved in the meantime, but maybe someone is still interested.

Pausing between the commands is possibly caused by Tello.
When using the SDK, see if and when Tello responds with "ok".
Your program should wait until "ok" (or an error message) is received before sending the next command.
After executing a movement, Tello takes some time to achieve a stable position before sending "ok".
The better the light conditions, the quicker a stable position is achieved.
