Inspection: Hands-On With the Parrot Anafi Drone

When Parrot introduced the brand new Anafi drone in June it felt just like a significant moment. In the end, a worthy competitor had come to rival that the DJI Mavic Air and, even more widely, the Chinese producer's growing dominance. You can look at here now for the fantastic Parrot Anafi drone.

The Camera

The Anafi includes a Sony IMX230 detector, an Ambarella video chip, and may shoot 21MP photographs and movies in 4K.  It has got 3-axis stabilization and, most significantly, 180 degrees of vertical tilt.  As a consequence, you can fly straight under items and picture them from beneath.  

The camera also allows for 2.8X lossless zoom, which works as you would expect and is a special characteristic to get a drone with the size. Overall, the operation of the camera is superb. Pictures are sharp, videos are sharp in most light conditions and there is not much to whine about. 

Performance

To start with we've got the thing that most drone pilots are worried about: flight time. That is considerably better than the DJI Mavic Air. Those additional minutes make a large difference.

Concerning speed, range, and maneuverability, the ANAFI does sufficient with no spectacular. It can hit rates of 33 miles and withstand winds of 31 mph.  You may even personalize settings, in the incline of the drone to its turning rate and camera tilt sensitivity.

Portability and Usability

To an extent Parrot has delivered on that promise. The Anafi is extremely mobile. Its foldable wings have been retracted in a far more intuitive manner than DJI's foldable choices.
