Coptrz are a leading provider of drones and drone training globally to individuals, companies and large global government agencies. We provide a range of drones including the Parrot ANAFI Ai.

Parrot ANAFI Ai

Drone manufacturer Parrot is making a big change in the connectivity game with its 4G-connected drone, the Parrot ANAFI Ai, designed to provide a variety of functions, such as surveying, mapping, and photogrammetry.

It features a water-resistant IPX3 enclosure and a unique camera system with two sets of stereo cameras for obstacle detection. Through the open-source FreeFlight app, users can control the drone using their smartphones.

4G Connectivity

The hard case makes the ANAFI Ai ideal for commercial use. Its compatibility with 4G ensures seamless connection with any phone that supports 4G, providing users with an unlimited range and delivering superior connectivity in the history of drones. However, In areas where 4G isn’t available, you’ll need to use the built-in backup Wi-Fi connection in the controller.

4G also speeds up the streaming of videos. The ANAFI Ai reportedly has a latency of around 300 ms. Its controls and video are secured using DTLS and SRTP.

The 4G radio Fibocom L860-GL module in the ANAFI Ai can operate in over 28 frequency bands in the 4G spectrum, which covers 98% of the frequencies used globally. With 4G connectivity, you can avoid getting a signal loss warning whenever you fly behind a building.

Built WI-FI Controller

The Parrot ANAFI Ai will automatically detect signal strength issues and switch between 4G and Wi-Fi accordingly. Network congestion monitoring through packet loss and latency automatically adjusts the throughput according to these metrics.

The Skycontroller 4’s backup Wi-Fi system is standard, providing a range of up to 9 kilometres on FCC mode and 4 kilometres on CE mode. The system can adapt to four directional antennas, with a gain of around 2.5 dB. Even though it’s not as good as 4G, it still works well with most drones on the market.

4K and the Stereoscopic Camera 

The 4K camera is standard to the ANAFI Ai and is used by professionals and consumers. The 4K camera is a 48-megapixel, 1/2-inch model with a resolution of 8000 x 6200 effective pixels featuring a 14 EV Dynamic Range and a 6x digital zoom.

The drone’s lens has a 24mm equivalent focal length and an f/2.0 maximum lens, designed to provide a wide-angle view, although its low f-stop may cause some blur if used as a fixed lens.

The ANAFI Ai uses two stereographic cameras positioned on the image sensors to avoid obstacles. The cameras have one vertical and one horizontal field of view and rotate in flight using the mechanical Gimbal, ensuring the drone has a 360-degree perspective.

The stereographic cameras mean the ANAFI Ai can take flight in an indoor environment. These cameras collect data about the orientation and velocity of the aircraft in real time and use reflected light from LEDs to aid low-altitude flight.

Artificial Intelligence

The AI is able to identify the height, azimuth, and size of a tower antenna while performing an inspection. This feature eliminates the need for multiple measurements while performing an inspection. In addition, the AI can perform flight plan calculations in an autonomous mode.

The drone is able to create a 3D environment model of its surroundings, powered by AI, which uses its stereoscopic cameras to create a visual representation of its environment.


The ANAFI Ai is a drone designed for enterprise use. It features cutting-edge technology with 4G connectivity and AI-assisted features, which help improve the drone’s performance and allow it to execute effective missions.

The drone features a unique camera system that’s ready for mainstream use. Its 48 MP main camera is capable of providing a detailed image. Its built-in photogrammetry mode makes it easy to create 3D models.

The PIX4D software library and the ANAFI Ai drone make it easy to perform various tasks, such as surveying, mapping, and inspections. Open-source software such as the FreeFlight app can also be used to control the drone. Its compatibility with major protocols and programs means that it can be integrated seamlessly into your fleet.
