As part of Force Protection Experimentation (FPX), the RAF Force Protection (FP) Centre has recently taken delivery of the Parrot Anafi USA, a Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS). As one of the first units within Defence to take delivery of this latest system. It offers one potential solution to RAF FP expeditionary Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) requirements. Lightweight and compact, the Parrot Anafi is capable of being launched by patrols in under one minute and offers increased situational awareness to FP personnel.

Why is the military version using the so unprofessional "normal controller" and not the cool looking one in the Blue sUAS photos?

So what do you think is going on in the picture? They are testing out a nonmilitary version? Sort of like a demo unit? Did the military not buy the military version (Makes no sense).
The picture is just a phot op with a prop?

The military and police for years is using the same anafi as regular consumers. It’s possible they don’t need the additional features which the militairy version provides in case of the anafi USA.
