Today I was going through my flight records for my Anafi’s and Disco, and found something potentially very disturbing.
Earlier this year I bought an Anafi Extended Kit off eBay. The seller was not the original owner but rather someone who’d purchased a pallet of Amazon Returns and was selling this Anafi Kit as spares and/or repairs. After receiving the Anafi I found it was a simple repair and I’ve been flying it ever since.
Now, I also own a Parrot Disco that uses a different FreeFlight App but it also displays the flight records of all Parrot devices owned, including my two Anafi’s. What I was surprised to see is that in the FreeFlight Pro App for the Disco it claims I’ve had four crashes (I’ve never crashed a drone in eight years of flying) but on top of that it shows the flights and crashes (6 flights four of which ended in a crash) made by the previous owner of the eBay Anafi along with their home location.
This shows that the flight data we submit to Parrot is not associated with our accounts but with the serial number of the drone, and this data is passed on when we sell our Parrot Drones.
I’ve contacted a Parrot and waiting on a reply.
