wingsland s6 unfolded

The reason crowdfunded drones fail frequently was neatly underlined this week by Wingsland.

Unless you have been living under a rock you cannot have missed all the folding platforms being announced at the minute.

On LinkedIn of all places Wingsland marketing type Antwan Rao teased a new platform.

Entertainment should belong to all of us, pleasant moments should belong to all of us. And technology should make this true. 

So, S6 from Wingsland, a total recreational drone is coming. We have been waiting for it for about 4 months. But the problem is that we only got the drafts from our design center yesterday although it will available in August.

They must have also noticed the popularity of the folding for factor and moved on it.

Quickly, and this is where crowdfunders and large companies fail. Shenzhen companies can whip around town looking for bits and mocking up ideas fast. Prototyping companies on every other corner and all the facilities right there to rush into production.

The multirotor market really needs to acknowledge that quads are made in Shenzhen.

Really in the two hard bin to try anywhere else.
