Installing FreeFlight 6

You will need the FreeFlight 6 app to update ANAFI and Parrot Skycontroller 3 when you switch on the drone and controller for the first time.

FreeFlight 6 is available for free on Google Play for Android, and on the Apple App Store for iOS.



In addition to opening up all the exceptional features of ANAFI, the FreeFlight 6 app will allow you to keep the on-board software of your drone and Parrot Skycontroller 3 updated at any time.


It must therefore be downloaded and installed on your phone (Android or iOS) before your first flight with ANAFI.


Although the procedure for doing this is very simple, every step must be followed in the right order, exactly as described below:


  1. Find FreeFlight 6 on Google Play or the Apple App Store, depending on whether you are using an Android or iOS smartphone. Download the app, install it and give it all the permissions it asks for.

  2. It's time to open up all the systems:

    1. Unfold the arms of ANAFI, place it on a flat surface and turn it on by pressing the power button of its battery.

    2. Unfold Parrot Skycontroller 3's central arm to switch it on.

    3. Using the charging cable of your smartphone, connect it to the USB-A port of Parrot Skycontroller 3: FreeFlight 6 will open automatically.

  3. Do not try to log on to the ANAFI network using Wi-Fi.

  4. FreeFlight 6 will offer you the following two updates: one for Parrot Skycontroller and another for ANAFI.

  5. First, accept the update of Parrot Skycontroller 3: the application performs the update and confirms that it has been completed.

  6. Second, accept the ANAFI update: the application performs the update in the same way and confirms that it has been completed.


The updates must be installed in the right order for your drone to work properly. That's why we urge you, one last time, to:


update Parrot Skycontroller 3 first, ANAFI second.


When this procedure has been completed, your ANAFI is ready to fly:

  • either with Parrot Skycontroller alone;

  • or with your smartphone alone;

  • or by associating Parrot Skycontroller and your smartphone.
