So I have taken notice recently that most of my footage or photos has some weird black dotting or white specs through out image, I’m super bummed as it has made the drone useless now for what I use it for. Any thoughts

Bad sensor is my opinion. I have seen others post the same problem and Parrot replaced the Anafi claiming the sensor was no good. Hopefully you have warranty left for replacement.

How long Is the process? Already communicating with parrot and they have seen the photos.
Also I’m assuming that with a good sensor I’ll see a big improvement in video quality?

Usually when approved you will receive a rebuilt Anafi in 10 working days.

Yes video will be drastically better something is very wrong.

Rebuilt, over the phone I was told it would be new? That’s concerning

Failed in what way?
One had gimbal issue the other went out of control on first flight and hit tree. The last rebuilt one has been fine for 8 months has 130 flights on it. I am on number 5. First one in July 2018 lasted 4 months had 170 flights. From my expierence the rebuilt has lasted the longest.

Was your Mavic 2 pro a good buy? Any trouble with nfz?

Very smooth flying super photos and video I had zero problems with NFZ however, I am 3.5 miles from small airport. The RTH was rather unstable it would go in the opposite direction sometime however I could recover manually. I just prefer the smaller drones for everyday expierimenting I have Mavic Mini and the Anafi.
I use my DJI Inspire 2 second to the Anafi because I design and make camera mounting systems for Inspire and Disco.

The Mavic 2 is about 2.5 times larger then the Anafi and 4 x larger then the Mavic Mini.
Problem with Mini is it is to light I had one get caugt in the wind and it was gone forever. The Anafi has never had a problem like that however it weighs 350g - 400g as opposed to the 250g for mini.

They all have trade offs in performance and features. If you carsh or loose a small one you may be out 300 if you do the same with a Inspire it can be 10x that.
