French drone manufacturer Parrot has joined in the Black Friday party with some big discounts on its drone range, which includes the Bebop 2 FPV, the tiny Mambo and the recently released Anafi.
Drone buyers in the UK, the U.S. and beyond can get close to 50% off some models.
Parrot’s Black Friday sale runs from November 14th to 26th, so that’s a pretty short time period to make your mind up and choose the best drone for you or a loved one, particularly as there are similar sales on DJI products at the moment.
Parrot’s Black Friday Deals: The Anafi
Of most interest to keen aerial photographers will be the discounts on Parrot’s headline drone, the Anafi.
$150 can be saved on the 4K HDR camera, which is on sale at $549 – down from its retail price of $699. The offer includes everything you need to fly: the drone, one battery (with an impressive 25-minute flight time), a compact carrying case and a Parrot Skycontroller 3.
A short while ago Parrot also announced a new Anafi Extended pack. Buyers can now get that for just $699 (down from $799). It’s the same package as above but comes with 3 batteries, not just 1. Which adds up to 75 minutes of flight time combined.
We reviewed the Anafi back in July and overall thought it was an impressive camera drone with a few outstanding features. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t downsides.
Other deals from Parrot
Apart from the Anafi, Parrot is offering discounts across the rest of its drone range.
The Bebop 2 is being sold in three different FPV packages. Depending on which extras you want (spare battery, hard case etc) the price starts at $299.
And the smaller, kid-friendly Mambo racing drone is available for under $100.
All are close to being 50% off their original retail prices, so there’s good value for money to be had here.

Parrot Sales in the UK
As you’d expect, the discounts are pretty similar across the board for buyers in the UK and elsewhere in Europe.
You can save £50 on Anafi, the flying 4K HDR camera, which is now £499 (down from £549). Or save £100 on the Anafi Extended pack, which is now £629 (down from £729).
If you’re purchasing from the UK, Parrot’s special Anafi deals will be available from November 14th to 26th at Currys PC World, Argos, dronesdirect, Amazon and parrot.com.
