DJI RoboMaster S1 Specification


The DJI RoboMaster S1 is a Multirotors drone that was released by DJI in 12/6/2019.

A multirotor drone is a multiple propeller, vertical lift drone. These drones are more maneuverable due to their flight profile, being able to fly much closer to buildings and other obstacles. Multi-rotor drones like the DJI RoboMaster S1 also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The battery capacity inside is 2400 mAh.

The DJI RoboMaster S1 sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 8 km/h. This might not be a bad thing though, so it really depends on why you're looking at buying the drone. If you're happy with a slightly slower drone then this one could be what you're after.

With a range that falls under the 1km mark at 0.3 km, it's definitely on the lower side of drones. This will be plenty for an occasional, line of sight flight drone, particularly with toys, but if you're looking to fly something with a little more range than this drone definitely isn't for you.

The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 35 min. This flight time will be plenty of the average user, and should give you more than enough time between charges. You can always bring an extra battery to swap out between flights, or just a battery pack to charge it up as you go should you need a little more flight time.

Reviews of the DJI RoboMaster S1

A home run of a robot with a steep price tag
  • - 4
RoboMaster S1 is an expansive, but expensive, toy — one that any coding and robot fan is going to love to get their hands on to try. It's almost hard to call it a toy because it's certainly rugged enough to professional use, and studded with extraordinary features that makes this easily workable for a number of cases. As a child's toy, RoboMaster S1 is going to wow. At $500, it should. If you're looking at a way to teach a young child to code, this is not the toy — it's really too many features, too complicated and while driving a tank super fast across the floor is never boring, you won't need this for that task. If you're looking for something that will help a child get into robotics, will challenge their coding skills and almost assuredly expand in its features, the RoboMaster S1 is going to be solid choice.

DJI's new wheeled drone doesn't fly, but it does offer loads of educational, robotic fun.

The S1 was a ton of fun to test. It's a well made and thoughtful introduction to robotics and programming. It's not cheap, but for kids who are old enough and have an interest in STEM-oriented topics or programming, the S1 is a fantastic introduction to the world of robotics.

The High-End STEM Robot
  • - 4
DJI RoboMaster S1 is one of the most premium, high-end STEM robots we’ve seen. But to max its potential and make it worth the price, younger kids will need adult assistance. But for older robot fans who have been waiting for a mature, premium STEM toy, this is it.

The DJI Robomaster S1 in an incredibly fun educational robot
  • - 4
Overall this is a fun toy but a very expensive one. It’s hard to justify myself buying this as I know it would sit on the shelf collecting cobwebs despite how much fun I had with it. Perhaps if the robot became sentient and held me hostage at turret point I might actually use it more, but alas he’s not that smart, yet. For those with teenage kids who want to one day save the world and learn about the world of STEM, this is a worthy option. They’ll probably learn a lot more valuable skills here than they would say playing a new video game console, but also would they use it? That’s between you and your child.

DJI RoboMaster S1 Review
  • - 4
As a remote-controlled vehicle, the DJI RoboMaster S1 is zippy and fun to use, like a land-bound drone that can shoot lasers and gel pellets. And as a programmable robot it offers a plethora of functions through Scratch, with lessons that walk you through building the robot up from a car that can spin around to a cybernetic tracker and hunter. Python support and a modular design with the potential for switching and adding different modules make the robot a useful tool for teens and older students as well. Its only limitation is that its modular design is currently stock-only, and the ability to swap out and add new components simply isn't available yet. Still, this is a well-designed and accessible robot that is both incredibly fun and educational, and earns our Editors' Choice.

This land-based drone is seriously cool, but also seriously pricey
  • - 4.6
A snazzy robot with great controls and educational value, but it’s a hefty splurge. We had a blast with the DJI RoboMaster S1, but that price tag is sure to make almost anyone take pause. You really need to be able to make the most out of the device—and that means either learning coding from the app or applying your knowledge to programming and customizing the S1. But if you’re not likely to dig into coding and just want something for surface-level solo fun, we’re not sure that the RoboMaster S1 can justify that kind of immense investment.
