What is the best way to implement continuous movement?

In the standard SDK, waiting for a command to complete before issuing another will not work for my application.

Ideally, I would be able to continuously send commands, for example, telling the drone to move [100cm forward] but halfway through, sending a [100cm right] command to end with a final position of (100, 50). I've seen that libraries like DJITelloPy allow you to send velocities with continuous control, but are there any different/better ways?

Is it possible to leverage the RC command and create "mock joysticks" that will provide continuous movement?
 
I am not an expert on Tello coding but the only command I see for continuous motion is the rc command. I suspect flying an arbitrary path will be very difficult without additional position information.

I do not have a Tello EDU but it can report the position (x,y,z) of the drone relative to a mission pad so with the rc command may make it possible to fly an arbitrary path.
