Parrot Anafi drone review

 

Portable, lightweight design ; Solid camera with HDR ; 180-degree gimbal ; Lossless zoom

Mild control lag ; No obstacle avoidance

This is unquestionably the best drone that Parrot has ever made — but there are a few things holding it back. Most notably, the sluggish controls and lack of obstacle avoidance detract from the flying experience, and ultimately force you to fly more...

Parrot Anafi

 

The Parrot Anafi puts all emphasis on size—the small, folding drone is ideal for travel, thanks to 4K video capture, a small airframe, and USB charging.

Very small. Charges via USB-C. 4K video with HDR. 3x digital zoom lens. Upward gimbal tilt. Big battery for 25-minute flights.

No obstacle detection. Digital zoom cuts into 4K quality. Requires smartphone. Construction feels a little flimsy.

Bottom Line: The Parrot Anafi puts all emphasis on size—the small, folding drone is ideal for travel, thanks to 4K video capture, a small airframe, and USB charging.

Parrot Anafi drone review: flying high, but falling short

 

DJI's only real competitor misses the mark

Unique lens and camera features not found elsewhere ; Adequate battery life ; Solid connectivity

Poor design ; Difficult to fly ; Autonomous features require extra purchase, don’t work well

Correction, 1:00PM, July 2nd, 2018: An earlier version of this review said that 3D Robotics no longer existed. The company still exists, but it no longer makes consumer drones. We’ve updated the article and regret the error.

Parrot's new 4K camera drone folds up to the size of a water bottle

 

Small, quiet and with a big feature set, the Anafi might just steal away some sales from industry leader DJI.

Parrot Anafi Drone Review: Excellent Folding Video Drone

 

The Parrot Anafi has a lot to like. It's one of the most compact full-featured drones we've ever tested, packing into a small, water-bottle-sized package that fits easily into a backpack. And when you reach the destination, it's easy to take out and...

Compact, portable package ; Easy to unpack and fly ; Excellent video ; Quiet

No collision detection ; More vulnerable to wind and buffeting than larger drones

Hikers, bikers and outdoor lovers will like the portability and image quality of the Parrot Anafi drone.

Parrot's Anafi Drone Takes on the DJI Mavic Air

 

Parrot's new folding drone has a 21MP camera that can take 4K HDR video

Parrot Anafi: A new 4K rival for DJI’s mini drones

 

Parrot Anafi first look: Parrot's first foldable drone looks to be great value for money with innovative features including 4K HDR video and 2.8x zoom.

Clever compact design ; Excellent 4K camera ; Easy to fly ; Straightforward mobile app

No collision avoidance tech ; Shorter transmission range than DJI Mavic Air ; No indoor stabilisation ; Lossless zoom isn’t lossless

While DJI’s Mavic Air still offers the best all-round affordable drone package, the slightly cheaper Anafi impresses on multiple fronts. Worthy of consideration for those who’s budget doesn’t quite stretch to the Mavic Air.

Parrot ANAFI drone review

 

This French drone is a very credible rival to DJI's market-leading Mavic Air, with a lower price compensating for a slightly less pleasing flight experience

Excellent 4K/21-meg camera with zoom ; Light and portable ; Impressive flight time

No obstacle avoidance ; Awkward gimbal control ; Slow battery charging

Parrot Anafi review

 

Parrot's best drone yet – but is it a DJI beater?

Compact, lightweight build ; Excellent image quality ; Solid battery life ; Easy to fly

Still no collision detection ; Shorter range than DJI's Mavic Air

DJI's flyers still lead the way, but if you're looking for a compact, (relatively) affordable drone that produces great 4K video, the Anafi makes a convincing case.

Parrot Anafi review

 

The 4K foldable DJI rival that could shake up the industry

4K UHD video at 30 fps ; 21MP HDR stills ; 180-degree vertical camera ; 23-minute battery life ; Slim, durable frame

Zero obstacle avoidance ; Many flight modes behind a paywall ; No backup battery ; Tendency to drift randomly

This thin, bug-like drone is an excellent choice for flight experts and filmmakers. Its incredible vertical range camera captures 4K UHD films and 21MP photos, plus sports 2.8x lossless zoom. Its lightweight, slim frame won’t take up much room in your...
