Wingsland S6 Flight Test

Wingsland S6 (V2) Review, Unboxing and Flight Test + Accessories Review

[Updated 13-07-17 – Part 5 added – BB Gun Accessory] Last year saw the rise of the smaller autonomous drone, but only the Mavic Pro from DJI succeeded. Wingsland have just relaunched their ‘Wingsland S6’ compact foldable drone and it looks impressive.

Earlier in 2016, we reported on the initial launch of the Wingsland S6 but shortly after our editorial, we discovered that the model launched was a ‘pre-production’ version.

Wingsland S6 Version 2 – Unboxing, Inspection, Flight Test Review

Customers were unhappy with this model, in addition to the firmware and app being relatively prematurely released with barely any functionality.

But the S6 has just been relaunched with a redesigned hardware set and an impressive specification, including 4K camera, dual-ultrasonic sensors, downward facing optical flow camera, GPS and GLONASS and folding form-factor which makes it truly pocket sized.

Watch our video review (5 parts)…

Enjoy our comprehensive review of this new mini intelligent drone, split into 5 parts to make the series easier to follow.

Part 1 (Wingsland S6 Unboxing and Inspection)

In this first video, we unbox and inspect the Wingsland S6 to see how it compares to rival folding quadcopters/drones.

Part 2 (Wingsland S6 Setup and App)

In this next video, we will be downloading and installing the app for Android, upgrading the S6 firmware, testing the flight simulator, calibrating the gyro/compass and then exploring the rest of the app. We also present a clear comparison of EIS vs non-EIS to see just how effective it is.

Part 3 (Wingsland S6 Indoor/Outdoor Flight Test)

Finally, the flight test of the Wingsland S6 is available to view, unfortunately we were forced to delay filming of this part due to technical issues with battery and the drone itself.

Part 4 (Wingsland S6 ‘Search-Light’ Review)

Wingsland have released a set of three accessories for the Wingsland S6, we have just tested the new Search-Light accessory.

Part 5 (Wingsland S6 ‘Boom Boom’ Review)
