How do I make sure I’m ready for a safe flight?

Equipment

⚠ Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of FreeFlight 6 and that both your Parrot Skycontroller 3 and your ANAFI series drone have been updated with the latest versions of firmware.

 

⚠ For the ultimate ANAFI series drone experience, make sure you have the right USB-A cable to connect your Parrot Skycontroller 3 and your device.

 

⚠ Make sure your ANAFI series drone is fitted with a microSD card with enough free memory space. Make sure all four foldable arms of your ANAFI series drone are unfolded.

 

⚠ Make sure its propellers are clean, intact and unobstructed.

 

⚠ Make sure both your ANAFI series drone’s and Parrot Skycontroller 3’s batteries are fully charged.

 

⚠ Make sure your ANAFI series drone’s battery is securely installed on the drone’s body.

 

⚠ Make sure the lens cap has been removed from your ANAFI series drone’s gimbal.

 

⚠ Make sure your ANAFI series drone’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.

 

Regulations

⚠ Make sure the use of your ANAFI series drone 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.

 

Flight conditions

⚠ Check that your flying zone is safe and clear.

 

⚠ Do not fly your ANAFI series drone at night.

 

⚠ Do not fly your ANAFI series drone 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 your ANAFI series drone in the rain, fog, snow, or in a wind exceeding 14 meters per second or 50 km/h.

 

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).
