How Does Parrot’s ANAFI USA Stack Up Against the Competition?

Recommended Posts

Parrot’s ANAFI USA is a tough new drone that comes with thermal imaging, high quality zoom power, and can be flown in harsh weather.

Although Parrot is based in France, its new drone is manufactured in the U.S., as indicated by its name, and has the same “high-end security, durability and imaging capabilities as Parrot’s Short-Range Reconnaissance (SRR) drone designed for the U.S. Army.”


Read today's post for a side-by-side comparison of the ANAFI USA with other popular public safety drones on the market, including the Matrice 300 and the Impossible 1.

Do we know what collision avoidance if any is in the ANAFI USA ?. I don't believe the smaller models had it but maybe this one does. 

Unfortunately it does not have obstacle avoidance, as far as I've been able to find out—see this article for a little more info:

Interesting to see that Skydio just announced its commercial version of their US Army drone.


Things are definitely heating up on the 'American made' front, especially for public safety. Will be interesting to see what the landscape looks like if/when the American Security Drone Act actually passes.

Hello, you have to make a correction on the original article when you say "it has by far the highest IP rating, making it arguably the toughest of all these drones" (IP53) you can mislead people on this, the IP rating is mesured by resistence to two diferent values:  Solids (first Number of the IP) and Liquids (second number) so in this case IP53 has a better resistance to solids(dust particles for ex.) but a much weaker resistance to liquids as for example the M300 (IP45)
