Drone manufacturer Parrot has introduced a new chronicle of a ANAFI unstable drone, this time braggadocio Predator-style thermal prophesy from on high.
The ANAFI Thermal foldable worker includes an Flir Lepton infrared sensor, that is recognized as a personality for a construction industry, in hunt and rescue operations and in environmental refuge efforts. So, yeah. Not utterly designed for a same functions as The Predator.
The thermal sensor provides a medium 160×120 resolution, though can magnitude feverishness between 14 and 752-degrees Fahrenheit, while there are granular controls sitting within a Parrot app. It’s also probable to mix a thermal imagery with full colour video, in sequence to supplement a small some-more detail, after a fact
The sensor has been combined to a existent camera array, that includes a ability to fire 17:9 video during 4K resolution, with HDR support and a 3x lossless wizz for video and 21-megapixel photos. It still offers a 180-degree sloping gimbal and 3-axis stabilisation. There’s a 78 notation moody time interjection to a contingent of batteries and can be replenished around USB-C.

The tip speed is 55km/h, permitting immeasurable areas to be covered, while it can also withstand winds of adult to 50km/h, creation it a useful apparatus in severe continue conditions. At 315g, it’s somewhat lighter than a original, interjection to slimmer folding arms, that also aids a battery life.
However, that new sensor certain does strike a cost up. The £620/$700 all-in-one worker now ranges adult to £1,700/$1,900 for blurb purposes.
In a examination published final September, we awarded a strange Parrot Anafi a plain 4/5 star rating.
Our reviewer concluded: “While DJI’s Mavic Air still offers a best all-round affordable worker package, a somewhat cheaper Anafi impresses on mixed fronts. Worthy of care for those who’s bill doesn’t utterly widen to a Mavic Air.”
