The new Parrot Anafi may arrive as soon as June 30th, 2020 according to this announcement. The original Anafi was launched in New York in the summer of 2018, so yeah it is about time that we saw an update. However, this drone is quite different from what we have seen before from the French drone maker, Parrot.
Only a few days ago, we wrote about this tender from the department of the interior in France and how they are looking to purchase 651 drones. Part of the tender seemed to be specifically written for the Parrot ANAFI drone. Whereas another part of the document seemed written for a drone with a 30x zoom lens, which we (still) think is for the DJI Matrice 200/210. But then we learned about this drone that offers very similar capabilities but in a much smaller and lighter package. Check out the Parrot ANAFI UA from the French drone maker Parrot. Could this be the perfect drone for first responders and search and rescue operators?
