Parrot’s new ANAFI drone is designed like no other available consumer quadcopter right now; its 180° tilt gimbal allows the 21 MP camera to point directly up for unique aerial shots, and the drone has lossless digital zoom up to 2.8x in 1080p or 1.4x in 4K. The camera drone was unveiled today at a Parrot ANAFI launch event in New York, and it will be available to buy on July 1 for $699.99.
Parrot’s latest camera drone is a 320-gram foldable quadcopter that is rated to fly up to 25 minutes. ANAFI is a travel-friendly drone that can be unfolded within three seconds, and it can charge via USB-C! The quadcopter has a top speed of 33 mph in Sport mode, and it has been tested to resist winds up to 31 mph. A new transmission system has been implemented on the ANAFI; each drone leg has a 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz antenna for reliable, long distance flights up to 2.5 miles away.
