Cool Planes | PowerUp 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane Kit


Love things that fly but can’t get enough? Well, there are planes, and then there are very cool planes that can entertain you when you have nothing better to do. Get ready for the PowerUp 3.0, the world’s first smartphone controlled paper airplane.

PowerUp 3.0 is the newest model from the inventor of the first PowerUp 1.0 electric paper airplane,  Shai Goitein, a pilot and aviation enthusiast. Only this time, he took things a step further and integrated state-of-the-art Bluetooth Smart technology to turn your cool planes into lean mean flying machines.

PowerUpToys’ Kickstarter campaign was amazingly popular. They reached their goal of $50,000 within the first 8 hours, and eventually accumulated 21,412 supporters and $1,232,612 to fund the project. 

How These Cool Planes Work

Make a plane out of any kind of paper.  Clip on the Smart Module device which consists of a small propeller and rudder that will power your plane. Next, pair the Smart Module with the smartphone app, push the throttle to full and launch the paper airplane into the sky.

Steer right or left by tilting your smartphone from side to side. The app’s touchscreen interface allows you to control the altitude, and provides your thrust and range indicators, magnetic compass and artificial horizon.

PowerUp 3.0 is easy to use and has a crash-proof carbon fiber frame. The kit includes a rechargeable Lithium power pack, which will give you 10 minutes of flying time on one charge, a micro USB cable, and a spare propeller and rudder. Your plane will have a range of up to 180 feet.

The first PowerUp 3.0 kit will be available for any iOS device that has Bluetooth 4.0 and for Android 4.3 or higher. It’s in the beta testing stage now and is expected to hit the market in July 2014 at a retail price of $49.99.
