European drone manufacturer Parrot introduced its ANAFI Ai robotic UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) this July, touting it as the world’s first 4G quadcopter. But back then, we had no pricing info or launch date in sight. Now the drone is finally available to pre-order.

The Parrot ANAFI Ai, whose design is inspired by nature, is advertised as a game-changer in the industry, thanks to the fact that it uses 4G as the main data link between the drone and the operator. Thanks to this feature, users will no longer experience transmission limitations, according to Parrot. Weighing just 1.98 lb (around 900 grams) and with folding arms, the ANAFI Ai gets really compact and is easily portable. But don’t let its small size let you think less of it, as the drone packs some really impressive features. It comes with a 48 MP camera that offers a video resolution of up to 4K at 60 fps and a Skycontroller 4 controller and an open-source app. It is also water-resistant, with an IPX3 rating, meaning it can cope with rain. The ANAFI Ai can operate at temperatures between 14 and 104 degrees F (-10 to 40 Celsius). Parrot’s insect-inspired stereoscopic cameras allow it to avoid obstacles regardless of its flight direction. But the strongest selling point of the drone is its ability to switch to 4G cellular data whenever the WiFi signal is not reliable. It can connect to 4G in less than 30 seconds. The software of the ANAFI Ai then optimizes the frame rate and definition accordingly. As for the flying time of the quadcopter, the Parrot drone can stay in the air for up to 32 minutes on a single charge, reaching a top speed of 34 mph (55 kph). The 4G robotic UAV is great for photogrammetry, being able to create 3D models of buildings, landscapes, etc. But it can have a variety of other applications, being suitable for surveying missions, inspections, and more. Parrot recently made the ANAFI Ai drone available for pre-orders and it goes for $4,000.
