Today French drone maker Parrot launched the ANAFI FPV drone kit. The concept of this product is similar to the DJI Mavic 2 with the DJI Goggles RE. All of this comes in a much smaller, less bulky, lighter, and less expensive package.
To be fair, Parrot will offer significantly less functionality compared to the more expensive DJI package. It includes the drone, controller, FPV goggles, a smart battery, a backpack, a 16 GB SD card, a USB-C cable, and a set of extra propellers. The ANAFI FPV will be available for presale and in-store in early September, and it’s priced at $799.

A lot of people want to know what the best drone is, but that is actually a very difficult question. My favorite drone is the Mavic 2 Zoom, but I wouldn’t recommend that drone to everyone. I don’t think the best drones of 2019 are here yet as Skydio and DJI have some drones in the works. There are still some excellent options out there, though.
Your purpose and budget are two hugely important factors when looking for a drone. If your goal is to have fun, then I would recommend one of the inexpensive drones on my list. If aerial photography is your focus, then the best beginner drone has been the DJI Spark, but it isn’t one I’d recommend to professional or semi-professional pilots. I’ll take a look at the entry-level competition as well as some of the higher-performing birds, like the Mavic 2 Pro.
