Anafi pilots especially appreciate the exceptionally low noise of this stealthiest consumer drone on the market.
In the following article, we picked the most important and best accessories, so you can get the most out of your awesome drone.
ND Filters for the Parrot Anafi
When asked which accessories are most useful for the Parrot Anafi and all other drones for that matter, ND filters are most frequently mentioned, along with spare batteries.
Beginners quickly realize that their video footage does not correspond to the quality of videos created by experienced Anafi pilots.
The main reason for this is the missing ND filters. A real necessity for the cinematic video look when shooting with the Anafi.
Due to technical limitations of the camera such as the fixed aperture, images with high light emission are not nearly as good as it is actually possible.
Therefore ND filters are used to reduce the light incidence and to avoid the problem. That’s why they are one of the best accessories.

The reason couldn’t really be more obvious. When you’re using a smartphone instead of your tablet, you are composing a shot on a very small screen. With a mounted tablet, you make sure that you always get the right exposure.
Our suggested tablet mount is able to rotate 360 degrees to fit all operation angles and is very easy to install.
Anafi Landing Gear Extension
Under certain conditions, however, it can be a disadvantage. For example, if you want to start from a meadow or rocky terrain. Grasses can quickly get caught in the propeller or swirled stones and dust could damage the drone.
With the Landing Gear extension, you can easily prevent something like this and allow launches of rough terrain.
This waterproof 30″ landing pad will provide you a great protection for starting and landing on any terrain.
No matter if the ground is wet, sandy or high grass. You will always have a reliable airstrip with this landing pad.
With the reflective strips, you will not miss your landing place even in bad light conditions.
Down below you will find our top choices for the best and most useful accessories for your Parrot Anafi.
1. Spare Parts
2. Charging Accessories
3. Storage Accessories
Many pilots do not agree on the optimal number of replacement batteries. Depending on your flight behavior and the purpose of your Anafi flights it remains your personal decision on how many extra batteries you use. However, as soon as you choose the location where there is no possibility of charging, it is recommended to carry more than three batteries with you.
NOTE: Never use Aftermarket batteries for safety reasons.
A set of replacement propellers are always a good choice. There is ALWAYS a chance of something happening. Perhaps collisions with branches or just by material fatigue.
Charging the Anafi batteries can take a while. But with a good charger, the time to charge can be shortened immensely.
With the Anker charger and its maximum output of 30W, you are able to plug in a USB C cable to charge your battery in less than two hours.
We added this charger, because of the great reduction of charging time, in our list of the best accessories for the Parrot Anafi.
With a good charger, you also need a good USB C cable which is capable to deliver the 30W output.
This USB C cable is sturdy and long enough to charge your batteries trouble-free.
Cheap cables usually result in bad connection, slow transfer speed, or in our case slow charging time. So, remember, get yourself a good quality cable like this one here and always have the best performance.
In this case, a car charger becomes very handy.
Use the time you are driving your car to charge up your batteries and be ready to fly when you arrive.
This charger has 2 output so you can charge your phone as well!
Often there is no way to charge when you are on a hike in the mountains looking for those best locations so you can capture that moment with your Anafi. Our suggestion is this power bank which has 20100mAh capacity. That is enough power to charge up multiple batteries!
Just plug your Anafi battery into the power bank and leave it in your backpack while you walk, run or bike.
When handled incorrectly, they will lose performance and capacity much faster than their actual lifespan.
For air travel, it is important to know that some airlines refuse to take the batteries if they are not equipped with battery packs. These bags not only cushions the battery itself to avoid damage but also protects nearby people if the battery explodes.
We also recommend using battery bags for storage.
