Parrot Anafi Specs & Review

 Parrot Drones has been placidity of late, but the fellowship launched a salvo against DJI, the marketplace seat leader, alongside the proclamation of the Parrot Anafi. It’s most damn fourth dimension too. While a fan of DJI, nosotros all desire to come across the photographic tv set camera drone marketplace seat pushed forward.

 The fellowship has unveiled the Anafi, a folding drone that takes some not-so-subtle potshots at DJI's Mavic Air. It's non only the portability -- the Anafi touts a 21-megapixel photographic tv set camera that promises 4K HDR video at 100Mbps, including 2.8X lossless zoom.


 The photographic tv set camera isn't skilful every bit the Mavic Air's inward some respects, every bit it's only using two-axis mechanical stabilization (software as well as a broad lens handgrip the tertiary axis). Still, it represents a large improvement over the 1080p video as well as no-gimbal pattern of Parrot's Bebop drones.


Parrot Anafi – Design


 Parrot CEO Henri Seydoux detailed at the launch upshot how the fellowship studied insects similar bees to figure out the best house to insert the photographic tv set camera for maximum visibility. 

In the end, Parrot chose to house the 4K photographic tv set camera where an insect’s caput would go, which places it far plenty away from the rotors (or wings) that these volition never come inward the camera’s view, no affair what angle y'all indicate it.

This allowed Parrot’s team to lay its photographic tv set camera on a 3-axis gimbal alongside 180 degrees of vertical range. While your drone hovers inward place, y'all tin indicate your photographic tv set camera straight upwards or straight downwards using the controller triggers. 

 Most drones tin cinema straight downwards, as well as then this sort of upwards visibility is unique. Anafi’s pattern volition aid filmmakers as well as adventurers larn meliorate shots of objects without having to live straight inward a higher house or inward forepart of them. 

 Once you’re done flying for the day, your drone folds downwards into a cylinder, most the size of a skinny Amazon Echo Plus or tall H2O bottle – 9.6 x 2.6 x 2.5 inward (24 x vi x vii cm) inward all. 

 Inside of its “Cocoon” carrying case, every bit the engineers jokingly called it, your drone põrnikas tin live easily transported inward whatever bag, but it’s slightly besides large to comfortably correspond inward your manus or whatever pants pocket.

 Still, it only weighs 320g (0.7 lbs / 11.3 oz), much lighter than the Dji Mavic Air’s 430g as well as only inward a higher house the DJI Spark’s 300g. 

 Perhaps because of that lightness, y'all don’t postulate to worry besides much most drone buzzing: Parrot claims that Anafi measures nine decibels quieter than the DJI Mavic Pro

 During Parrot's launch presentation, upward to 4 drones flew around the room at once, as well as the buzzing genuinely wasn’t that noticeable compared to the dissonance of the crowd. 

Parrot Anafi - Controller as well as Battery Life


 While the drone itself is arguably to a greater extent than compact than the Mavic Air, the same can’t live said of the Skycontroller iii remote that comes alongside it. Its telephone holster folds down, but it’s silent quite a chunky controller that volition live to a greater extent than hard to transport. It also lacks the removable thumbsticks of the Mavic Air’s remote controller, which adds to its overall size. At 386g, it also weighs to a greater extent than than the Anafi drone itself.


 The controller will, however, forthwith connect to the drone i time y'all unfold it, pregnant y'all tin live off as well as flying much quicker. There are also convenient zoom controls available from the shoulder buttons.

 Both the drone as well as controller receive got a USB-C port for charging, which is most welcome. You’re also able to hit upward the battery from a hit of sources including portable battery packs or your phone’s charger. That’s keen tidings as well as a convenience non ever available on other drones.


 Parrot is maxim flying fourth dimension should live around 25 minutes, which compares favourably against the DJI Mavic Air’s rated 21 minutes of flying time.

As an aside for anyone wondering what the scream means, it’s evidently an isle only off Greece. Keep that inward your pocket for the adjacent pub quiz.

Parrot Anafi – Specs as well as camera

 The Parrot Anafi includes a 21 MP camera, a 180-degree gimbal tilt, 4K HDR video at thirty FPS as well as 1080p HDR video at lx FPS. Parrot has also mentioned that the Anafi will live able to zoom inward upward to iii times, but that amount hard disk shots volition only live able to live made at upward to 2 zooms. The photographic tv set camera itself is able to both digitally as well as mechanically stabilize all captured photos, too!

 The Anafi uses a 3-axis gimbal stabilization arrangement with, every bit nosotros only mentioned, 180 degrees of tilt. This agency that the drone is non only able to hold back down, but it’s also able to hold back straight upward into the air. This allows for a much broader hit of user liberty when it comes to getting the best shots possible, allowing for footage inward the best directions.

 Not only volition nosotros live getting the novel Anafi, but nosotros volition also live getting a novel application, every bit well. The novel FreeFlight vi app volition permit users to select 21 MP or 12 MP photos, every bit good every bit beingness able to adjust their video modes. One such video fashion is hyper-lapse, which allows for speed footage at a charge per unit of measurement of upward to 240 times, slow-mo video, as well as fifty-fifty a high frame charge per unit of measurement fashion that allows users to cinema at a charge per unit of measurement of upward to lx FPS.

 The FreeFlight vi app is available for both iOS as well as Android systems, which connects your telephone to the Anafi controller using a USB-A cable. Parrot has backed this type of connectedness because it improves the connectedness alongside the drone as well as allows for constant video streaming.

 Though this is an arguable opinion, it would look from everything we’ve seen from Parrot before, they are at nowadays getting downwards to draw concern as well as creating to a greater extent than professional person drones for their lineup, which is proven past times the Anafi. Though their previous drones receive got seemed to live to a greater extent than toyish, the Anafi is bringing aerial photography as well as videography to an alone novel level, which is made meliorate past times the fact that it’s a foldable drone.



 Compared to the Bebop 2, the Anafi is 35% to a greater extent than placidity and, every bit nosotros mentioned, to a greater extent than technical as well as has excessive improvements made. While the Bebop 2 had issues connecting at times, Parrot is confident that the Anafi volition receive got no problem remaining connected at all times. Gone are the days where your signal is lost!

 Because the Anafi has a amount of 4 antennas, each on the feet of the drone, every bit good every bit to the physical controller, maintaining a WiFi connectedness volition live no problem at all. What’s more, it also has a maximum transmission hit of upward to 2.4 miles as well as is able to switch betwixt 2.4GHz, 5GHz, as well as fifty-fifty 10MHz bandwidths without y'all having to switch them. That’s right, the Anafi does it automatically.
