Wingsland just relaunched the Scarlet Minivet under an M1 product name. Apparently, the WINGSLAND M1 has the same design and features as the old model (2015). This new version comes with an extremely friendly price tag. The WINGSLAND M1 is advertised for only $176.99!
Wingsland M1 (Scarlet Minivet) – The flying beauty
Under the shadow of the DJI Phantom 3 launch, a new quadcopter manufacturer named Wingsland has born and announced their first product: Scarlet Minivet.
Honestly, I was positively surprised by the design of this unexpected new quadcopter. Its incredible curves, like the ones of a beautiful woman, and orange color instead of the boring white makes the Scarlet Minivet quadcopter a flying beauty. Sorry if my analogy is more humanly than the manufacturer’s one who inspired their quadcopter name from a tropical orange bird with long wings, the Scarlet Minivet.
Two versions of this quadcopter were announced, one for first-person view flights and one with a lower price just for the fun of flying.
The Scarlet Minivet (aka Wingsland M1) Professional is equipped with a high precision 3-axis gimbal (Deodar M) and a full HD 1080P FPV camera. Another characteristic of the Professional model is the 5.8Ghz FPV monitor on the top of the transmitter. The FPV LCD screen is not just to display the live video feed from the Scarlet Minivet’s camera, but also to show the flight parameters like battery voltage and flight speed.
Powered with a 3 cell 5200mAh smart battery the Scarlet Minivet quad has up to 25 minutes flight time. Usually, smart/intelligent batteries are used only on high-end models, they provide better power management and extended battery life.
The control distance of the Scarlet Minivet is shorter than the image transition distance. That means that the provided live image will have the highest quality throughout the entire flight and will be not affected by the distance.
