Pocket drones aren’t really considered some of the best drones by a lot of people. But after looking at the price of the Wingsland S6 drone and the features it comes with, most of those people should change their opinion. It can be considered as one of the top contenders for the best selfie drone crown just for the built-in Sony IMX214 4K camera alone. Its camera makes it a contender for one of the best drones.

Why We Like It – WingsLand S6

If you want to experience a professional camera drone for the first time, but don’t want to spend more than $200 on one, the Wingsland S6 pocket drone is a fantastic quadcopter to buy. Not only is it packed to the brim with different features, but the WingsLand S6 drone also comes equipped with an excellent IMX214 4K video camera.

Pros
  • Great flight time for the price
  • 13 MP 4K video camera
  • Course lock and home lock modes supported
Cons
  • It gets unstable even under a light breeze

Speed & Power

Just like the Walkera QR X800, the WingsLand S6 Orange quadcopter isn’t really considered a racing drone. The Yuneec Breeze 4K is also not considered a racing drone, as it’s super slow. Still, the top speed it can reach is about 15 miles per hour (~24 KMPH), which is pretty great. But that won’t cut it for racing drone veterans. In that case, go for the DJI Spark Remote Controlled Drone (~50 KMPH) instead. You may also want to check out the Walkera Rodeo 110 review for a drone that reaches up to 45km per hour.

Range

This is a drone that connects to your phone directly using WiFi, similar to the Ruko F11 Pro Drone. So obviously, the range is not going to be that remarkable. If high coverage is your main requirement, you should actively avoid this one. Mainly because, even when there’s a faint signal, the 4K video feed might become extremely choppy/laggy over long distances. For extremely high range, you should rather pick up the ZeroTech DOBBY Drone.

Durability

Even though the outer shell of the WingsLand S6 Pocket Drone looks like it’s made of cheap plastic, it’s solidly built overall. The propeller hands of the S6 drone are collapsable for easy storage. And multiple different accessories attach on top of it for more functions. For more stable drones, you’ll want to read our Syma X5C drone review and Yuneec Typhoon H Pro review.

Camera Features

Unlike the SNAPTAIN S5C, the WingsLand S6 Orange drone comes with a 4K camera sensor built-in. It’s a pretty good Sony IMX214 HDR image sensor (12 megapixels) that is capable of taking extremely sharp photos and videos. And especially with the two lock modes, it can take a very stable 30 FPS video of a moving object, if there’s no wind blowing on the opposite end.

Value

What the WingsLand S6 drone offers for just 200 bucks, no other manufacturers can even come close even with their $300 drones. And if you manage to score free shipping on this thing, the value proposition of this pocket drone becomes even more enticing. Go through our Xiro Xplorer review for a drone with a 5000mAh battery.

WingsLand S6 Wrap Up

Well, all in all, the WingsLand S6 Orange drone is pretty fantastic for its price. Even professional photographers are going to be impressed by its camera and photo & video processing.
