A safe flight is a well-prepared flight. Here is a reminder of all the points you need to check before you fly ANAFI.
- Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of FreeFlight 6 and that both your Parrot Skycontroller 3 and your ANAFI have been updated with the latest versions of firmware.
- For the ultimate ANAFI experience, make sure you have the right USB-A cable to connect your Parrot Skycontroller 3 and your device.
- Make sure ANAFI is fitted with a microSD card with enough free memory space.
- Make sure all four foldable arms of ANAFI are unfolded.
- Make sure its propellers are clean, intact and unobstructed.
- Make sure both ANAFI’s and Parrot Skycontroller 3’s batteries are fully charged.
- Make sure ANAFI’s battery is securely installed on the drone’s body.
- Make sure the lens cap has been removed from ANAFI’s camera.
- Make sure ANAFI’s lens is clean – if you need to clean it, hold the gimbal between two fingers so that you do not pressure its mechanism when you clean the lens, and gently wipe the lens with a microfiber cloth.
- If you are wearing a smartwatch, Parrot recommends you take it off to avoid Wi-Fi interference.
- If you experience excessive interference, remember you can fly ANAFI with your device in Airplane Mode, as long as you keep its GPS activated.
- Make sure both ANAFI and your controller are synchronized to enough GPS satellites so that both GPS icons of the HUD of FreeFlight 6 are green.
- Make sure the use of ANAFI is allowed where you are intending to fly.
- Check for potential restrictions regarding the use of Wi-Fi frequencies in the area where you are intending to fly.
- Check that your flying zone is safe and clear.
- Do not fly ANAFI at night.
- Do not fly ANAFI over urban areas or over restricted airspaces such as airports, train stations, power plants, national reserves, and so on.
- Check the weather: do not fly ANAFI in the rain, fog, snow, or in a wind exceeding 14 meters per second or 50 km/h.
- Make sure you have adapted your minimum RTH altitude (PREFERENCES / Safety) to your flight environment.
Due to the operating mode of its vertical camera and ultrasound sensor, Parrot recommends you do not fly ANAFI over water and other reflective surfaces (mirrors, glass, and so on).
