The Wingsland S6 RC Drone and ZeroTech Dobby Pocket Selfie Drone both fall in the category of small drones that are compact and can record in 4k. The two have done exceptionally well with drone and quadcopter fans, but it’s time to finally decide which of the two is better!
Both the Wingsland S6 RC Drone and the ZeroTech Dobby Pocket Selfie Drone have a design that is compact and portable. The fragile and delicate parts like propellers have always been a concern when travelling since they can break easily, but these drones combat this problem easily.
The Wingsland S6 RC Drone is an attractive mini UAV that boasts of an ultra slim body and can easily be carried around in your pocket. The body of the drone measures just 138 x 79 x 26.8mm in size and weighs 230g.
The ZeroTech Dobby features a unique foldable design that is compact and has foldable arms that get tucked inside the drone’s shell when it is not in use. Easy to fit in a bag or pocket, the drone is also super light at just 199 grams.
Both drones are light enough to do away with FAA’s registration for quadcopters that weigh more than 250 grams. The Wingsland S6 features a futuristic design and attractive color schemes in comparison to the Dobby’s all white shell.
The Wingsland S6 RC Drone is equipped with a 13MP camera as well as 3-axis EIS that makes it possible to capture stable and beautiful pictures and videos in 4K UHD at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps and 720p at 60fps. The camera supports various features like panning, slow motion, time-lapse, auto following and flight path setting.
The ZeroTech Dobby Drone uses a 13 MP f/2.2 camera that has a FOV of 75 degrees. Apart from taking pictures, it can also record videos in 4K resolution at 30 fps or in 1080p at 30fps. It features image stabilization and can take burst shots of up to 15 pictures.
Largely the camera features of both the drones are the same, with the only evident difference being that the Wingsland S6 can record in 1080p at 60fps, while the ZeroTech Dobby only at 30fps.
The Wingsland S6 RC Drone can be remotely controlled using the compatible and versatile application over Wi-Fi. It includes features like a virtual lever, gravity sensing, and voice control, as well as a Flight Simulator that allows you to learn and perfect flying the drone.
The drone also has omnidirectional obstacle avoidance due to its infrared detector, which can analyze and evade external obstacles from any direction to provide you a carefree flight.
Other features include a 6-axis gyro, infrared altimeter, high precision barometer, dual mode GPS and 3 processors. The drone also has Automatic Following, FPV capabilities, Gravity Sense Control, Low-voltage Protection, One Key Automatic Return, One Key Landing, One Key Taking Off, Point of Interest and Selfie mode.
On the other hand, the ZeroTech Dobby Pocket Selfie Drone can be controlled using an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, and has a range of up to 100 meters when flying indoors as well as outdoors. It is capable of real-time image transmission (FPV) at a lower resolution to the smartphone or tablets screen.
The drone works on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC that has a 2.3GHz quad-core CPU with 2GB of RAM, Hexagon DSP, 16GB of internal storage, 8000Hz samplong frequency and an Adreno 330 GPU.
These smartphone like specifications provide capabilities such as facial recognition, understand and execute voice based commands, auto follow, gesture based controls, 3 tap wake up and even lets it execute some flips!
The drone also features GPS and GLONASS for precision flights and can do trajectory flights in mission control, along a predefined path and record at the same time. It is equipped with dual frequency Wi-Fi connection with good anti-interference performance.
The Wingsland S6 Drone uses a 7.6V 1400mAh 10.64Wh (2S Li-Po) battery that provides a flight time of around 10 minutes, while the ZeroTech Dobby Pocket Selfie Drone is equipped with a 970mAh LiPo battery that provides 9 minutes of flight time.
Both the drones come with pretty much the same specification, but the end choice depends on which will suit your needs better. The battery and flight time, design and portability, as well as most of the camera specifications are similar, but the ZeroTech Dobby can provide users with a smartphone level chipset that the Wingsland S6 can’t.
Both the drones deem themselves to be great selfie taking drones, but the Wingsland S6 RC Drone also provides other ways of aerial entertainment apart from flying and capturing media. It features extension interfaces on top of the drone’s protective guard. You can mount a Bomb Gun to launch bullets using the app, use the LED Expression Board that can display some cool emojis and text, and even use the Search Light to send SOS signals in the case of emergency.
