Tello turns off during charge?

So I wanted to create a landing pad with a magnetic attachment for the power cable, however, it seems like when it connects it drops wifi and just goes into charging mode.
Anyone know a way to bypass this or am I just wrong here?

I'd like to be able to land, charge, and still be powered up to receive commands from whatever source. Like a standby mode.

Thats what Tello does.
You'd need to bypass the charging circuit and somehow feed directly into the battery

I am interested in what you are doing. could you post a photo, and schematic. There are drones on the market that do this. it would be good to be abler to charge one unattended/ Thank you.

Oh it looks like i'm not doing anything. My PCB skills aren't good enough to try and bypass the circuts here :)

On youtube, I have seen some who are doing work to increase flight time. They are tying right into the battery post connections.
