POWERUP 4.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane (RC)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to put a motor and an onboard circuit on a paper airplane and turn it into an RC Airplane? Well now you can with this smartphone-controlled device that attaches to any paper airplane and allows you to fly it from the ground!  That means you can turn a simple paper airplane, or balsa wood or cardboard plane, into a fully functioning RC Airplane with this amazing device.

POWERUP 4.0 has an onboard computer/circuit and can function on autopilot.  The device also includes a wind stabilizer allowing you to fly in windy conditions as well as a launch assist meaning that even if you throw a bad launch for your flight the onboard computer will stabilize the plane and pull it up safely into flight.  There are some great features so you can automatically ask the plane to do barrel rolls, loop the loops and even the tricky hammerhead maneuver.  This lets you pull off some of the more difficult tricks with a simple press of a button.

The gadget has two high-speed motors so you can great lift and thrust and makes the plane more dynamic and maneuverable. The onboard flight program includes telemetry so you can analyze the flight speed, thrust, turning angles and heading direction in real-time from your smartphone. The kit is durable with replaceable parts including the battery, propellers, front bumper and clips.  The onboard computer is also fitted with anti-stall and dive prevention technology so you should be able to avoid nasty nose dive landings as well!

Overall this is super fun and innovative piece of kit that allows you to fly the paper airplane while impressing your friends with spectacular loops and maneuvers.  You can also have a lot of fun experimenting with different designs for your airplanes.
