Yesterday we shared a story on drone maker, Parrot in relation to leaving the consumer drone market. This was indeed incorrect. The original information was shared through a tweet made by one of Wirecutter’s staff.
In a message given to DroneDJ Parrot explains that it is not leaving the drone market and is just focusing on the ANAFI line of drones for the foreseeable future. Parrot still plans on releasing consumer drones once they have finished perfecting the ANAFI series.
Parrot is not exiting the consumer drone business. Please correct your story as soon as possible. Older product lines including mini drones, have been retired in favor of the next-generation ANAFI platform. Our focus on future production and development of consumer products with the ANAFI platform has been well documented through our recent financial/strategic communications. – via DroneDJ.com
The ANAFI series consists of 5 drone models ranging from standard vision cameras to dual thermal and standard vision cameras with some models have enhanced range and batteries. The ANAFI is becoming a go-to choice for many first responders and firefighters shown in a recent blog post on the companies website where Deputy Chief Fire Officer of the Seine et Marne department explains the reasons for choosing the ANAFI over other drones. The Parrot Bluegrass Fields will also stick around for the customers needing 3D maps and crop analysis.
You can pick up the Parrot Airborne Night Minidrone for a low $24.45 (AUD$36) right now, with stock levels going fast.
