Entering commands before the previous is finished:

When entering commands, you will have to wait for the previous command to finish. The Tello drone does not indicate "busy" or "finished". You will have to visually identify that the current command has completed.

Example: If you set the "speed" parameter low (1-10), it can take a long time to move . If you enter a new command then, you will get an "error" response.
