Connect to real drone with adb


I’m trying to connect to real drone with adb but here is the message I got :

adb connect anafi-ai.local:9050
unable to connect to anafi-ai.local:9050: Connection refused

Is there anything to do to being able to connect ?



adb is not available for real drones but only for simulated drones.


Hi @ndessart,

Thank you for your answer.

In Sphinx doc, I saw Like with a real drone, the simulated drone can be accessed via the tool “ADB”. in : How to debug firmwares - 2.8.2.

May be you should change the doc ?


Hi @ClementLeBihan ,

The adb access to a real drone is restricted to Parrot engineers so, the Sphinx documentation is misleading here. I’ll report this issue.

It’s great to open airsdk, openflight etc.
But if we can’t get log from real drone and can’t adb on real drone, it’s as if things are done by halves …

Yes… I should have mentioned that we are currently planning to open a non-root adb access with a new “developer setting” available through FreeFlight. This is actually on the top of our internal roadmap for AirSDK.

Alright, sounds great !
