POWERUP’s Smartphone-Controlled Paper Airplane Gets an Upgrade

POWERUP introduced the world to the smartphone-controlled paper airplane, a micro-drone kit that slips onto any paper airplane & turns it into a remote control toy with a flight range of 230 feet. The POWERUP 4.0 kit features a new onboard flight computer, autopilot assist, 2 new sensors & a design so robust you can fly planes of balsa, foam, cardboard & paper, with the ability to perform loops, barrel rolls & hammerheads with the press of a button. Optional lights are available for night flight. A funded Kickstarter.
