Parrot Anafi USA review: thermal inspection drone – Blue sUAS

Parrot Anafi USA review: thermal inspection drone - Blue sUAS

Do you want to conduct (thermographic) inspection flights within an urban area? Then the Anafi USA from Parrot is definitely a drone to consider. Because with its weight of less than 500 grams, the drone is currently in Open subcategory A1 (European drone rules).

Thanks to Skytools for making a Parrot Anafi USA drone available for this review.

Only Blue sUAS to be used by the U.S. Department of the Interior

Yesterday, the Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt sent a memo to the Assistant Secretaries and Bureau Heads informing them that only approved drones, so-called Blue sUAS are exempt from the PMB approval and reporting procedures, opening the door for the Department of the Interior to rebuild its drone fleet and start using it again for non-emergency missions.

Updated with a response from DJI.
