Wingsland S6 is a new pocket drone out of China.

Chinese company Wingsland announced the S6 pocket drone, competing directly with the Dobby Selfie drone from ZeroTech. The Wingsland S6 drone can be equipped with selection of James Bond gadgets including a mini cannon and search light. Wingsland released an out there promo video for the S6 drone that shows off the gadgets in a action packed chase. Watch the video below.

Also available is an emoji display board that can be attached to the drone. The company is working on an obstacle avoidance module, that will be available at a later date.

The small drone has a built-in 13MP low distortion camera. It weighs in at 230g including the battery and measures 138mm x 79mm x 26.8mm. The drone will be available in different colors and designs. Like the Dobby, the Wingsland drone has four foldable arms. The S6 is controlled with an app and can be maneuvered in different control modes. It also has typical drone features including intelligent orientation control, auto return home, follow me and one-key takeoff/landing.

This drone is also likely based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon flight chipset. Technical features include besides the 13MP camera, GPS, GLONASS (Russian GPS), Wi-Fi, 1,400mAh battery. Like the Dobby drone, the battery lasts for 10 minute fly time.

The Wingsland S6 starts at 2199 RMB in China, the approx. price for overseas will be $350 USD. Wingsland will be shipping the S6 worldwide very soon.

China is the market leader in drones world-wide. The new segment of smart pocket drones will be another growing market for drone makers. I own the Dobby Drone now since a month and it has become really fun to use it. I just ordered an additional battery and blade protectors. The short battery life of 10 minutes and the loud noise are the main two annoyances of pocket drones. Other than those hard to fix issues, these flying machines are super fun.

Read and watch my latest Dobby drone video, testing the newly released target tracking feature.
