Good day Nicled, in regard to your concern, hope the following info would assist.
        Fly in an area with less wifi interference.
        Fly in no wind
        Not suggested stretching over limited hight.
        Not suggested flying over water or under weak light
For more info, you might turn to user manual here:

Thanks. Made a mistake flying it at night and nearly lost it as it went awry. Good thing the blinking light gave its location. I notice it can go maybe 20-30'meters only and is easily swayed by the wind.

well for better flight distance and reduce frame skipping you can turn on airplane mode and use a wifi extender

Here is the most important tip for all Tello pilots (I guess):

Don't forget to set WiFi password for your drone. Anyone is able to connect to passwordless WiFi, in fact, many smartphones will do so even without knowledge of the owner. The real problem is that Tello allows only single DHCP client, and as soon as 2nd device is connected to Tello WiFi, 1st one will be disconnected and You are in danger of loosing your Tello. Setting password is super-easy, it takes only 30 seconds and it's one-time job.

Additional note: Xiaomi WiFi repeater 2 works with WPA2 WiFi without problem.

How many times has someone accessed your Tello's WiFi?

Agree completely. In regards to flights over water I would suggest only to do attempt it once you are very familiar with the drone.  If the optical flow locks onto a ripple you better be prepared to act quickly to get the drone back to shore.

Good day Nicled, you can refer below to add a password.

1. Connect Tello’s Wifi and launch into Tello APP.
2. Click Setting –Wifi setting – Add password. You would be required to reboot the drone then.

Hope it would help. Have a good time.

Hey Zefas, may I know more details like if all the four propellers would spin?   
If none of them would spin, please click the "tap fly " on the top left corner in Tello APP.
If some of them wouldn't spin, please refer the image below to check if all the four propellers are installed properly.  If it persists, a detailed description would be appreciated.

Water is a big one. Definitely avoid flying over it and only when you are quite familiar with the quad.
