Great Travel Drone that's EASY to Fly!Posted .
This drone’s compact foldable design is perfect for the photographer on the go. The 4K camera with 180° rotation and lossless zoom will ensure you capture that perfect shot. The lack of obstacle avoidance may be a deal breaker for some, but if you’re in the market for a high-quality camera drone at a fraction of the price, you should strongly consider the Parrot Anafi. The Parrot Anafi isn’t the best, nor the most advanced drone the market, but honestly for the price, it is hard to beat. The lack of obstacle avoidance really holds this drone back, but as long as you fly responsibly and stay aware of your surroundings, you will not have any issues safely piloting this drone. The controls and app are very intuitive and respond quickly with very little lag. The GPS lock helps maintain stability with little to no drifting, and the highly configurable flight controls ensure everyone, from the veteran drone photographer to the first-time owner, has an enjoyable experience. This drone features multiple flight modes ranging from full manual control to advanced object tracking. My personal favorite is “Cameraman”, which enables you to lock onto a target and manually control the flight path of the drone while keeping the subject perfectly centered in the shot. Unlike its competitors, Anafi’s “Follow Me” mode supports camera panning as well as chase shots, whereas most of the competition only offers the latter. The 4K/21MP camera, while extremely small, offers crisp video and excellent photographs. The gimbal is very responsive keeping videos smooth and jitter free. The camera also supports optical image stabilization to correct for any vibration / shaking. I have logged 21 flights since its arrival and have only experienced one minor glitch with the software. On one flight, the SD card reported an error, causing the live video to freeze. I suspect a recent software update was the cause and a reinstall of the app appears to have corrected the issue. Aside from this one issue, my experience with this drone has been flawless. Overall, I’m giving the Parrot Anafi 4 Stars due to the lack of a suitable controller case and for requiring in-app purchases to unlock the drones full potential. (The additional apps are currently on sale for $0.99 now through 9-6-18, previously they were $17.99/ea.) Pros: • Easy to Fly – Perfect for a first-time camera drone owner • Intuitive App • Multiple flight control options. The drone can be controlled directly from your phone, tablet or SkyController with or without a phone. • Excellent video and picture quality • Very quiet compared to other drones currently on the market– Hardly notice/hear drone 20 ft away • USB-C charging (6% to full charge took approx. 1.25h) • 4K camera with Lossless Zoom and HDR • Camera Gimble allows for 180° of vertical rotation so you can capture shots directly above or below the drone, without obstruction by the propellers • Fast start – Unfold the drone and you’re ready to fly • Storage case included • Long Flight time (20-25 minutes) • Lightweight, but solid construction • USB-C cable included • Expandable Memory • OTA firmware updates • Very responsive and configurable flight controls • Advanced target tracking – Superior to DJI • Does not enforce No-Fly Zones! Cons: • Micro SD card uses a tray style holder, if the cover falls off it can be lost, making it impossible to properly mount the SD card. I would prefer an SD slot. • No protective case for the handheld remote; Thumb Sticks exposed, could potentially become damaged when placed in a backpack. • No obstacle avoidance • The handheld controller does not support thicker phone cases • In-App purchase required to unlock all flight modes.I would recommend this to a friend

Put's the Fun in Functional - Great PotentialPosted .
I want to begin with saying this is my first drone and I'm certainly a novice to the hobby. Anything from experience that I learned was from my father-in-law whom has had one for some time now. Also I started with issues initially because I thought my phone was "new" enough to connect to the controller but alas, it wasn't. Because when they say new, they mean devices with the USB C port which are only truly making the change with releases this year. I will get into this more below. Fortunately I found an adapter on Amazon that I can confirm that works and allowed me to connect my phone (USB C - female to micro USB - male) and use the controller. It came in a two pack with the brand name "Choetech" (I've also included a picture). I have a feeling the key is to use an adapter and the cord supplied so it's possible any adapter may work but be aware a regular USB to micro USB cord does NOT work with the controller. This was good because I didn't have much luck with wifI only. The first time I ended up crashing it because I had the "auto switch" wifi feature turned ON in my phone where if it detects a stronger wifi signal, it automatically changes. Thus I lost control and it went into a wooden post, fell hard into the outside corner of a wooden planter box and to the concrete. Advice - turn this feature OFF on your phone when flying with wifi. The 2nd flight it was ok for less than a minute but somehow started drifting to the same spot and I again lost control/connection. I had to grab it out of the air and quickly "land" it to stop it. I didn't care to try it again until I used the controller. Being in a community we have tons of wifi interference and I know this can cause issues for ANY drone. Perhaps I'll test it again using wifi after a few updates down the road. GOOD: The bright side to crashing however - as my heart sank and I walked over to it's beeping lifeless body, I was shocked to find how it barely had a scratch. Only two propellers on one arm had a slight little roll where it hit and it wasn't even enough to change them out. This thing seems VERY durable and well built! Sound wise I find it a lot more tolerable and pleasant compared to my father-in-laws larger, more expensive DJI (I think it is). On the flip side though, his you can't hear at all once at a certain height while I found the Anafi I could still hear at a significant height. As for the controller, I'm a huge gamer so it feels so great in my hands. I even swapped the joystick controls in the app options to make the controls more like a FPS shooter. I found the response time from the controller input including both flying and camera inclination to be spot on which is great. The gyroscopic camera is also as steady as can be. I had fun testing it flying it quickly side to side and it stayed completely still as far as my eye saw. Visible wind affected it only very little considering how small and light it is which would be expected but also a slight surprise it's not more. A big plus is it did come with an 16 GB micro sd card which is really nice so you're ready to go out of the box. Pictures are indeed just gorgeous as you would expect from something 4K with HDR so going into detail is not necessary, you'll just love it. The 2.7x lossless zoom is so impressive, too. For some reason I was having issues with video recording but it may be the app. It seemed to record even though the app was showing issues, so I can't say much about that. It could have also been user error but if the quality is like the pictures than I'm not worried. The device itself is working as intended which is most important but I have more to say below about the app. I was indeed able to download the media through the wifi to my phone right after flight easily where I could even instantly share it to someone if I'd like. I would have to say because of the 180 degree swivel camera, great capture ability and compact design, I would think this drone would be on the top of the list when it comes to using for functional & commercial use such as real estate, repair/construction jobs etc... I have a two story house so if I have any future issues again myself I will be surely reaching for this thing to investigate before getting on a 25 ft ladder again! Overall it's really fun to fly and with the 4K HDR 180 degree camera and various picture/video features, the potential goes really as far as your imagination. CONS: Couple of gripes here, though. First is you have to pay to unlock both the "Follow Me" and "Flight Plan" modes which according to someone else the cost is $17.99 each. There IS a sale for just .99 cents right now but still. Maybe I'm wrong since I'm not as knowledgeable of all drones currently on the market, but I would think at this price point it would include those. While the concept to keep the selling price low while offering those modes as optional is a good one, the price point makes it a bit ineffective. I'll eventually purchase but for review purposes, I wanted to only use what comes out of the box. Second, while the quick start pamphlet was nice and easy, the booklet only gave basic drone operating regulations/tips/warnings. It really would have been nice if they also had a few pages explaining the interface in the app and what it all means when on the flying screen. Thirdly, you most likely will have to take your phone out of it's case to put in the controller like I had to. This wouldn't have been as big of a deal if it weren't for the fact that it really doesn't seem the most secure in the controller's grasp at all in general. A quick accidental brush is all it takes. I may try to create my own strap in system down the line. Lastly but most importantly is clarification of device compatibility. The box says this was made for iPhones (although Androids work perfectly fine too), and only comes with a USB A - C cord to plug into only the newest device models. I don't know what the exact last model Android/iPhones to have the micro USB port was but I know they were as recent as last year (2017).This means you need an adapter to hook up to slightly older devices. It would have been really beneficial to them if they either supplied an adapter or a second same sized short cord for phones still with the previous/micro USB ports. I feel like they are really limiting their market right now when these newer ports are still only starting to be added to phones. But this may have been intentional due to the current app state. They may have wanted to work on the newest phones first and work their way down. APP - Freeflight 6: While this is currently a "con" it's also something currently improving and undoubtedly will be better in the future therefor it deserves it's own section. Future readers can ignore this part as things will obviously be better as time goes on. Like others the biggest app issue I experienced was video feed issues. In the beginning it was only updating the feed once every 5-10 seconds but at least it worked. Eventually the feed completely went out and made the picture/video features lag for minutes and then stopped working all together. The drone controls, including the movement of the camera, were flawless this whole time though so that was comforting. After the latest update it seemed to stay working for the most part other than losing feed here and there which worked after restarting the app. Still dealt with the video feed lag though but I can deal with that for now as long as it works. Now one thing is clear by my own experience and other reviews on Google Play of the app - it's having a lot of problems right now. But the Parrot team is working tirelessly sending out updates. There has been 3 I think in the past week alone and people have already seen improvements (including me with the last one). I do believe things will continue to improve. With that said, I WOULD recommend this drone BUT perhaps for some waiting may be the best course of action. I'd keep watch at the forums and updates from the app to see how things are going in the meantime.I would recommend this to a friend

Nice drone, but lacks obstacle avoidancePosted .
This is the first drone I’ve owned, so I don’t have much to compare it to, other than the few times I flew my son’s AR 2.0, which was a few years ago. That said, I thought the Anafi was very easy to fly, despite the incredibly sparse user guide included. I’m not yet comfortable flying primarily by the video feed, so I couldn’t test the range completely, but it definitely has a greater range than the AR did. Picture quality was good, and you can even shoot in RAW format, but there is a bit of a fish-eye effect from the wide angle lense. Pro’s: -Folds to compact size, easily transportable in included rigid case. -Easy to fly. Can set altitude and geofence limits to help prevent yourself from wandering where you don’t intend to. -Camera gimbal does a good job of keeping camera oriented properly. -USB-C charging, and includes 1 cable. -Good flight time of 20-25 minutes. -Wireless controller has a very nice feel to it. Feels solid, without being uncomfortably heavy. -Can fly with just the wireless controller or just your phone (with a more limited range), in addition to the combination of the two. -Includes spare propellers, and the tool needed to change them. -Good manual video controls, such as shutter speed and iso. Cons: -No obstacle avoidance features. I know other drones in this range have such features, so I’m baffled as to why they would omit them. This would probably be the most significant negative, in my opinion. -Slot for micro SD card is inconveniently in a tray under the battery, and not the easiest to properly align. It doesn’t slide in, rather sets in a very small depression & has metal clip that covers it. Would much prefer a slot, rather than a tray. -No carrying case for wireless controller. -There can be a lag in the live video feed after snapping a picture. -There is some wide-angle (fish-eye) distortion in the corners of pictures. -Does not include a charger. -Spare batteries are $100 -Wireless controller may not fit larger phones, and may inadvertently press phone power/volume buttons. Barely fits my Note 8 with a thin case. -Very limited user information included. Just a very brief quick-start guide, and a gazillion page “Flight Safety Guide”, in about 52 languages. -Have to pay extra for two of the app features, Follow Me and Flight Plan. For the cost, these should just be part of the app. Overall, I’d consider this a fine drone, but as I mentioned before, I have very little to compare it to. Going to give it four stars, because I think it’s good, but could be five stars if they had obstacle avoidance features.I would recommend this to a friend

Great drone for beginners and more advanced usersPosted .
This is the first drone I've used however I had a general idea what to expect and that some do more than others. The app you use on your phone is so easy to get started and get flying. I was impressed with how little it took to get in the air and love that it can be flown with or without the controller. The first time I took it out I just used my phone to get the feel for how to fly and maneuver the drone. It's so easy to use and I'm so impressed with the camera quality. Pictures and video are crystal clear. The controls for moving the camera were a little harder to get used to but it's so similar to a gaming controller that once you figure out the buttons it's fairly quick. The range and height on this is incredible. It does take awhile to charge which is my only complaint. Otherwise this would be great for beginners and should do the job for more experienced flyers as well. It's fairly quiet which I was surprised by which is a great feature.I would recommend this to a friend

Lots of fun!!!Posted .
First time really flying a drone, so this the view from a newbie. Got drone. ...it rained a few days, but at least we read the directions, downloaded the app and updates, and got it all charged up. ..then we were working until after dark, then it rained for a few days. Then we had a good day, but the battery was dead. Or something was wrong, anyway - the drone wouldn't turn on. So we went back home and plugged it into a charger. There were some flashing red lights and then it settled down to green, showing half charge. After that it seemed fine. Not sure what that was all about. Perhaps it will warrant an update later. So, finally got a great day. Put phone in the holder on the controller and away we went!!! (Controller does NOT have that great grip on phone- EASY FIX PARROT.) Drone is very quiet with just a buzzing sound. Video is beyond stable - almost unreal. Probably normal for a drone at this price point, but amazing! We brought the drone to eye level and the recording of us is, well, kind of spooky. It looks sentient. Oh, and TAKE THE LENS COVER OFF BEFORE FLYING, just a suggestion. Micro SD card - you have to remove the battery pack and slide and tilt up a tiny metal cover to access it. It seems like Parrot could have come up with something more durable and convenient. At least you can use the USB C cable to download your video instead. Parrot has made the actual flying super easy even for a beginner, but do read the directions first. You'll want to let it to lock onto GPS before you launch, for example. Leave it in photo mode while you learn to use the controller; the very slow default settings will give you the time you need to fix mistakes before you crash. Oh, and those trees and buildings around you? They get really close really fast, and the drone doesn't have obstacle avoidance, so practice at first in an open field or parking lot. Find a flat surface for launching and landing; it complains if the blades are hitting grass. Overall, both the drone and the controller feel well made, not cheap. It was a little disappointing that the real-time video update on the phone was, well, not real time, which made setting the camera tilt angle tricky. Nice feature, though, and the video we got from it was fantastic!I would recommend this to a friend

I'm a Beginner...Posted .
Quick Info Phone Used OnePlus 5T 6" screen and Dash Charger and cable. The Anafi is my first introduction to a drone, not counting the RadioShack Christmas specials. And so as my summary states, I'm definitely a beginner and I have to say I was quite nervous as I was pretty scared to crash the thing. I read a few reviews first and people said it just took off on them and crashed and there are no replacement parts for control arms. Checking the website, you get battery packs, controllers, and blades. That's about it. As of writing I received the drone in the mail 7 days ago and our weather has been a little crazy so I've had to delay frequently my time to try it out. Today was bright and sunny, but had a good 4-5 mph wind. And it didn't phase this thing one bit. It stayed and hovered just were I would leave it. Again as a beginner, I couldn't be more pleased. I did crash it twice, once into small tall brush. Hard enough it collapsed a control arm and sent a warning to the controller screen. The second time I ran into a group of pine trees and it landed on the ground with arms in full lock, ready to fly! So its at least sturdy enough for that. When it comes to walls and such I'll let you be the judge. Also as a beginner I think they could do a few things better: -Have a bit more info in the packaging: there are two pamphlets one labeled a "Super Quick Starter Guide", you can see in the photo, and they mean super quick, like 8 photos. The second was FAA regulations in about 100 hundred languages, that is about 8 pages per language. Any real info is found on the support site and they have it setup as a Q&A style which tells me they really did me to give very limited explanation of things. Which I'm not one to complain about saving a few trees, but a bare minimum would be to have the charging specs included with the drone. The support site had this info. But without a charger included, I'm not just going to throw any old charger on it. I have a laptop that charge off of USB-C, but wasn't sure if it would deliver too much power, verdict is still out. Ended up using my phone charger. -Include a charger, for the price it's not going to be much more and most people these days don't have one that is USB Power Delivery certified to get the fastest charging times available. -As well a bit more info on just how to fly the thing. After my first flight I've realized that its just that simple to fly, it still could have a simple short video tutorial, the FreeFlight 6 app at least has the joystick layout (feels like a video game setup) but it also doesn't give much explanation into all the settings that can be changed and advantages/disadvantages. It definitely has a learning curve in the UI department. I would really like to see a demo mode either in the app or on the website to play with the settings and see how they affect the drone. -How to turn it on/off! The "Super Quick Guide" could at least two double clicks to get it into pairing mode with the remote. -My phone is the max size of what Parrott says is the range of 6". It's not the best design, it's quite crazy trying to get it to fit in, but honestly given the setup you don't want a small screened device. -It did drop GPS signal a couple of times and that didn't disrupt my flying at least at the distances I was flying; not far. It did say that I could do a planned route. I could keep going, but you get the point...too much guess work. Maybe being a beginner this is all stuff that veterans know? I'm pretty comfortable with tech, but this is out of my normal element. Honestly, that's why I gave it 4 Stars, while there is a lot of guess work, at least its easy to fly. Its not so easy you feel like a pro. Currently I'm only flying by sight not the screen, but I do live near a small forest, so I'm not ready to rely on my on screen depth perception. Closing Arguments: It's definitely worth the investment, do take into consideration that if it breaks, its probably broke. Accessories: Considering an extra battery for longer flight times. Maybe having some sort of harness for the controller would help to prop the arms up higher to fly using the screen.I would recommend this to a friend

So easy a caveman could fly it...Posted .
[SHORT STORY] Parrot ANAFI quadcopter drone is a must buy if you like plug and play simplicity. Pros: -USB C port -Micro SD expandable memory -4K camera -solid build quality -Battery removes easily -Storage case is premium quality and looks nice -Easy to fly -Stays where it hovers -Picture and video looks good -Lens cap cover Cons: -Does not include power adapter that plugs into wall (i used my Nexus 6P power supply) -Case has no room for spare battery -Didn't really care for the expandable memory slot location under the battery or how it opens/closes -Drone is loud (sounds cool though) [THE LONG STORY] Everything about this drone is simplicity. To the Super Quick Start Guide that reads like an ikea instruction card. The card has pictures that show 8 the simple steps will get your drone in the air after of you do the following: Register with the FAA so you can get your UAS number. So I have flown those cheapo helicopter and drones you find at end caps of grocery store/electronic stores. Very hard to fly and always end up wrecking them. Well let me ease your fear or wrecking this sweet Parrot ANAFI quadcopter drone. I opened the flight app, powered on drone, powered on controller (looks similar to xbox one s controller), and was ready for lift off (don't forget to remove camera lens cap). Drone propellers started spinning and the ANAFI started rising about 2 feet and hovered ready for me to control it. Left thumbstick controls height and right controls direction. You can either fly with just the controller and/or your cell phone. Live map and camera view show up on your camera. It is pretty sweet! I flew for about 20 minutes and the app showed the battery on the drone had about 4% battery life so I brought the drone close to original take off point, switched to landing on the application and this auto piloted the drone down without incident. That was very awesome that I didn't have to call Maverick to bring me in for a landing. For the whole time besides landing I was on manual pilot mode. For the most part the drone stayed hovering where it was. There was minimal breeze and saw very little drift of the drone if any. The controller has buttons to take pictures, zoom camera, etc. There is also feedback on android app that show field of view the camera has in red. The only issue I had was fitting my Google Nexus 6P in the holder of the controller. Maybe if I took my phone case off it would fit better. Also had to orient phone so the holder didn't squeeze the volume keys of the phone. I also had to go to my USB settings on phone and select file transfer in order to get the phone to recognize the controller. If not then the phone thinks the port is only for charging. I had a few people come out and watch my drone fly over an empty field. I didn't test the full range of height and distance but I feel confident it will go wherever I want to take it (of course following proper safety guidelines), The flight and controls are exact enough I could follow a friend who is mountain biking and document the ride for fun. I couldn't find any flaws with the unit. It was just so easy to use and fly. I hope to unlock more features as I continue to log more flight time. If you a blogger, real estate picture person, hobby flyer, etc I feel this drone would be a good fit for everyone. One thing that future models could improve on is a more colors options for the drone. If one thing it is a pretty bland color.I would recommend this to a friend

Parrot AnafiParrot's latest drone is unlike anything that came before it. It's much more compact, shoots 4K HDR video, a proper gimbal and even offers optional FPV support. Should you buy one instead of a DJI Mavic Air? Read our Parrot Anafi review to find out.Full Review
Asked by Blt.
- A:Answer The drone is not waterproof nor will it float. My first Anafi is still on the bottom of a stream. There are aftermarket styrofoam balls that will attach to the legs and provide bouyancy. I believe the Anafi also has a low power mode that enables the "return home" feature.

Q: QuestionI am looking to get a new Drone for outdoor flying. Should I consider this one or the DJI? I will be mostly inspecting the roofs for my clients so I need an hour or so of battery life (I will buy additional batteries). I may wish to record indoors too.
Asked by OneOrangeTree.
- A:Answer I can't speak for the DJI, but my first experience with the Anafi I flew it along my roof line. I was able to tilt the camera down and look in my rain gutters while slowly sliding from one end of the house to the other. The ability to rotate the camera may be something you want for inspecting roofs. Parrot says you get 25 minutes of flight on their battery. I've only flown mine twice so far for about 15 minutes each session so I can't confirm that as accurate.
