    This drone's compact foldable design is perfect for the photographer on the go. The 4K camera with 180? rotation and lossless zoom will ensure you capture that perfect shot. The lack of obstacle avoidance may be a deal breaker for some, but if you're in the market for a high-quality camera drone at a fraction of the price, you should strongly consider the Parrot Anafi. The Parrot Anafi isn't the best, nor the most advanced drone the market, but honestly for the price, it is hard to beat. The lack of obstacle avoidance really holds this drone back, but as long as you fly responsibly and stay aware of your surroundings, you will not have any issues safely piloting this drone. The controls and app are very intuitive and respond quickly with very little lag. The GPS lock helps maintain stability with little to no drifting, and the highly configurable flight controls ensure everyone, from the veteran drone photographer to the first-time owner, has an enjoyable experience. This drone features multiple flight modes ranging from full manual control to advanced object tracking. My personal favorite is "Cameraman", which enables you to lock onto a target and manually control the flight path of the drone while keeping the subject perfectly centered in the shot. Unlike its competitors, Anafi's "Follow Me" mode supports camera panning as well as chase shots, whereas most of the competition only offers the latter. The 4K/21MP camera, while extremely small, offers crisp video and excellent photographs. The gimbal is very responsive keeping videos smooth and jitter free. The camera also supports optical image stabilization to correct for any vibration / shaking. I have logged 21 flights since its arrival and have only experienced one minor glitch with the software. On one flight, the SD card reported an error, causing the live video to freeze. I suspect a recent software update was the cause and a reinstall of the app appears to have corrected the issue. Aside from this one issue, my experience with this drone has been flawless. Overall, I'm giving the Parrot Anafi 4 Stars due to the lack of a suitable controller case and for requiring in-app purchases to unlock the drones full potential. @@@@@@@@ The additional apps are currently on sale for $0.99 now through 9-6-18, previously they were $17.99/ea. @@@@@@@ Pros: . Easy to Fly - Perfect for a first-time camera drone owner . Intuitive App . Multiple flight control options. The drone can be controlled directly from your phone, tablet or SkyController with or without a phone. . Excellent video and picture quality . Very quiet compared to other drones currently on the market- Hardly notice/hear drone 20 ft away . USB-C charging (6% to full charge took approx. 1.25h) . 4K camera with Lossless Zoom and HDR . Camera Gimble allows for 180? of vertical rotation so you can capture shots directly above or below the drone, without obstruction by the propellers . Fast start - Unfold the drone and you're ready to fly . Storage case included . Long Flight time (20-25 minutes) . Lightweight, but solid construction . USB-C cable included . Expandable Memory . OTA firmware updates . Very responsive and configurable flight controls . Advanced target tracking - Superior to DJI . Does not enforce No-Fly Zones! Cons: . Micro SD card uses a tray style holder, if the cover falls off it can be lost, making it impossible to properly mount the SD card. I would prefer an SD slot. . No protective case for the handheld remote; Thumb Sticks exposed, could potentially become damaged when placed in a backpack. . No obstacle avoidance . The handheld controller does not support thicker phone cases . In-App purchase required to unlock all flight modes.
