What our experts think...
It's very rare you see a drone that offers something a little different from the norm, so you can imagine my excitment when I got my hands on this little fella. It really is as small as they make out and fits nicely into your back pocket, so you don't have to lug around a huge carry case as if you were about to leave the country just to fly the drone down the park.
What stands out
- Measures approximately the same height of an iPhone 6
- Records ultra-stable 4K footage and 13MP stills
- Slim enough to slip into your pocket and take it with you
- Various auto flight modes to help you shoot amazing shots at the touch of a button
- Attach a flashlight, toy cannon and other quirky extras to the drone
They say "Good things come in small packages" right? Well, that's certainly the case with this pint-sized little drone! It features four fold-out rotor arms that cleverly tuck neartly away inside its main body, in a similar way to the Mavic Pro, so you pop the drone in your pocket and take it anywhere with you. Plus, it's controlled using your smartphone rather than a remote controller which means you don't have to carry anything more than you would be carrying.
Despite it's size, the drone somehow packs in a 4K camera and stabilisation technology for you to take super steady shots with stunning detail. Plus, there's a range of auto pilot path modes on hand to help you shoot stunning cinematic aerial footage at the touch of a button. I personally like the follow me mode which allows you do your own thing, while the drone automatically records and tracks you - all hands free!
As well as offering all the features you'd expect from a high-end drone, the S6 goes that little bit extra with the added otpion to rig up various attachments like a flashlight or a toy cannon. These quirky little attachments simply click to the top of the drone and can be controlled using your smartphone. Just imagine the amount of fun you can have with the toy cannon, firing soft foam balls at targets or unsuspected victims!
