Parrot Anafi FPV

Packed inside a convenient backpack, the new Parrot Anafi FPV kit includes an ultracompact 4K-resolution folding drone, an equally small flight controller and a collapsible first-person-view headset to use with up to a 6.5-inch iPhone or Android phone.

A place for everything

The $799 package includes everything you need and the backpack. Well, almost everything: You'll need to bring your own phone for the FPV display.

Umbrella-sized flying camera

The drone itself, save for updated firmware and app features, is the same as it was when it launched a little more than a year ago.

Unfold and fly

A single button press turns on the Anafi and it's ready for takeoff in just a few seconds.

Camera controls

With the FPV model's new Arcade mode, you can pilot the Anafi by pointing the camera in the direction you want to fly. First-time pilots might prefer these controls, but I found myself fighting muscle memory. It's definitely one to test out in a wide open area.

Cockpitglasses

Parrot's collapsible Cockpitglasses require an iPhone or Android phone with a screen up to 6.5 inches. Paired with the updated FreeFlight 6.6 app, a button on the bottom of the glasses activates the rear camera on your phone so you can see through the glasses without taking them off. 

A button on top of the glasses opens a full menu of camera and drone controls that are easily navigated with the controller's sticks.

Flip up to turn on

The controller turns on and is ready in seconds when you flip it open. You'll also uncover the return-to-home button and the takeoff/land button.

Hold the phone

Parrot includes a USB-C cable to charge the controller and the drone (you can charge both with a power bank, too). If your phone charges by USB-C, you can use the same cable to connect the controller to your phone. You'll need to supply your own cable for an iPhone.

Switch to FPV

In the updated app you'll find an option to change to FPV mode. Once you're in it, just pop your phone in the front of the glasses (it'll fit even with a thin case on your device).

Good enough

The video sent to your phone is 720p resolution, so it doesn't look super sharp when it's that close to your eyes. It's certainly good enough to fly by and frame your shots and I didn't experience any dropouts. However, I didn't remotely come close to pushing the transmission range of 2.4 miles (4 kilometers).
