Parrot Announces ANAFI Thermal

Recommended Posts

Here are a few unique features of the ANAFI Thermal that stood out to us:

  • Lighter and smaller than other commercial drones: ANAFI Thermal is 315 grams, 10 grams lighter than previous ANAFI drones and 2 centimeters smaller with an ultra-compact, folding design for easy storage and portability.
  • Longer flight times: Parrot advertises a 26-minute flight time for the ANAFI Thermal (one minute longer than previous ANAFI drones), and a 78-minute cumulative flight time between the three batteries that come with the drone.
  • 3X digital zoom and 180° gimbal rotation to get the images you need: A 3X digital zoom allows pilots to examine hard-to-access areas without taking unnecessary risks. The drone's visible and thermal light spectrum cameras are stabilized on three axes, allowing for sharp videos and clear pictures in any flight conditions.
  • Multiple views for data collection: With the FreeFlight 6 app, operators can easily switch between 4K HD video, RGB, and thermal imaging view. Images from the visible and invisible light spectrum can be viewed, analyzed and even merged with the app.
  • Ability to observe at-risk or difficult-to-access areas from a safe distance: The Parrot Skycontroller 3 remote control provides a reliable Wi-Fi connection for over one mile, meaning operators can use the drone while maintaining a safe distance from at-risk or difficult-to-access areas.

We talk more about the potential uses for thermal imaging drones in today's article. Plus, we investigate the drone’s new features and see how the ANAFI Thermal compares to the DJI Mavic Enterprise Dual.

What are your thoughts on the ANAFI Thermal? How do you think it stacks up to other commercial drones on the market? Let us know in the comments below.

The Prosumer dept as it's called over at Parrot is worthless.  We initiated a request to get a replacement drone 7 months ago because the drone was just flipping over,and crashing for no apparent reason on multiple occasions. They approved the replacement in November. 4 months later, still no joy. The unfortunate regular consumer department keeps telling us it's in process.  They are the only way to interact with the alleged Prosumer division, since there's no direct phone or email available to us. It's one of the more unfortunate customer service interactions I've ever been involved in.  They'll go nowhere against DJI with this kind of "support" i.e. lack thereof.
