About 4G connectivity
4G connectivity opens professional users a wide new world of BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) flights. Provided 4G coverage is available, ANAFI Ai has no range limit, other than that of its battery.
In interference-ridden environments such as urban areas, 4G connectivity also offers an incomparable robustness of the communications between drone and controller.
By default, as soon as a compatible SIM card is inserted in ANAFI Ai and activated, the Skycontroller 4 optimizes its connection with the drone, choosing between Wi-Fi and 4G network, automatically and in real time.
You can choose a different behavior (Wi-Fi priority or 4G priority) from the “Connection” Advanced Settings of FreeFlight 7 – refer to the “ADVANCED SETTINGS / Connection” section of this guide for additional information.
Be aware that 4G connection and in flight 4G data sharing may generate a charge, according to the 4G data plan associated to your SIM card.
Check local regulations before using 4G connectivity, as certain countries may restrict or prohibit drone connections to local 4G network, even in areas where drones are allowed to operate. In such a situation, disable “cellular access” on your FreeFlight 7 interface and use Wi-Fi connection only (refer to User Guide “advanced settings” section).
