This drone is equipped with a lot of different features and functions. But before we recommend this drone to you, we think it is a good idea learn about the capabilities it offers.
In the Box
When the Wingsland S6 arrives in the box, you’re going to like it! It’s reminiscent of an Apple product because it’s so fancy. The box works well in making sure the product gets to you in one piece, without damage. There’s a tiny plastic clam shell case that comes with the drone – this is much better than the box. You’ll want to hang on to it because it comes in handy. It is perfect for storing your drone in while you put it in your pocket or backpack. Yes, the Wingsland S6 is small enough to fit in your pocket. This makes it super easy to pack around with you.
With the Wingsland S6, your phone is the controller. If you have never used your phone to control a drone before, it will take a little getting used to. But actually, after you have used it a couple of times you’ll pick up on it because it’s pretty easy to use.
The Windsland S6 offers a variety of different functions. You have camera control, automatically following, FPV, sense control, gravity, one key automatic return, low-voltage protection, one key take off, one key landing, selfie, point of interest, voice control, turn left/right, up /down and WiFi connection.
On the left, you’re going to notice all your camera settings, while on the right, you’ll find all of the drone settings such as the Follow me and POI.
In order to access most of the settings, you will need to hide the gimbal screen. You can hide the screen by tapping the small radio signal. it’s a little different not having sticks available as the drone is flying, especially when you want to change a setting. With a little practice though, you’ll get used to it.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the functions:
FPV – Technically, you can fly this drone FPV style, but this will consist of looking at the screen under your thumbs while you fly.
Turn left/right, Up/down – This features works well, so there are no complaints. The drone flies nicely. We personally found the GPS hold and flying characteristics impressive.
One Key Taking Off and Landing – This feature works exactly as described.
One Key Automatic Return Home – This feature works great. Many people claimed that with this feature turned on, the drone returned about six inches where it took off.
Camera Control – With this drone, you will have the ability to change the camera while it’s in the air. You can change the frame rates, turn the EIS on and off, change the white balance and so much more. Regardless of what you choose to control, it will work well.
Point of Interest – This is another function that does well. When you enter Point of Interest the drone will start to circle the spot you identified as your point of interest. During this time, you will still be able to control the height and you can pull back on the “stick” in order to make the drone circle bigger. This is one of the most useful features available.
Automatically Following – This function is really fun to use and is a great addition.
The Wingsland S6 is a good choice with a lot of options. The Point of Interest feature is something that really makes it stand out from the crowd of mini-drones in the price range and this hand-held pocket size flyer is pretty fun.
