Got my first Tello before Christmas and I've been developing an API for controlling it for my own interest but thought I'd make it available for others to use.

Briefly, the API supports the following:
  • Validation of all commands to ensure only valid commands are sent to the drone
  • Command/response history
  • Response parser for processing drone "read" command responses
  • Execution of commands from pre-prepared scripts
  • Background monitoring and reporting of drone status

The example application is console based and lets you send commands to control the drone and query its status. The GitHub and NuGet pages for the API and test app are here:

davewalker5/TelloCommander
TelloCommander 1.0.0.3

It includes a Wiki that describes how to reference it in your own applications with examples.

Hopefully, you'll find it of some use - enjoy!

Could you please tell me what IDE do you use for writing code and uploading it to the tello?

Sure - I use Visual Studio Community, Visual Studio for Mac and Visual Studio Code to write the software.

It’s not actually uploaded to the Tello itself - it runs on the laptop (Windows or Mac) and uses UDP to send data to and read responses from the drone.

You also need the .NET Core runtime and SDK installed.
