The new Parrot Anafi drone will come in two versions. One will be for the military, the other one will be for civilian use, including Search and Rescue operations. I have reached out to somebody with first-hand knowledge of this new and exciting drone from the French drone maker .

A military and a civilian version of the new Parrot Anafi

The person close to Parrot confirmed that the name Thermal SE is indeed for the regular Anafi and not for this new unmanned aircraft.

Our source did say that the new Anafi drone will be made in the and that there will be one version for the military, called the Parrot Anafi SRR (short-range reconnaissance) and one version for civilian purposes.

Apparently, Parrot has not yet decided on a final name for the latter. It could be the Anafi UA or the Anafi USA. I might receive new information before the week is over so stay tuned. The new Parrot Anafi could be officially released as soon as this summer.

My source confirmed that the new Anafi will work with DroneSense.

  1. I have been asking this question everywhere with no definitive answer: The arms on regular Anafi and those Anafi FPV are different in thickness, length, and rigidity. Why did Parrot make them different? Is one better than the other?
