If you run your plane into a wall - repeatedly - your POWERUP may sustain some damage. That’s why we recommend trying to land on something soft - like the grass in your local park.
The POWERUP 4.0 has a range of 240 feet. If you go beyond that, the app will lose communication with the bluetooth chip in the propeller and your plane will land.
Thanks to the onboard flight computer and stabilizers, you can use the 4.0 in less-than-perfect weather. If you’re flying a paper plane, it’s still best to avoid rainy days though. And for the smoothest flights, aim for clear, sunny, calm days. The template kit includes waterproof paper incase your are restricted to fly in wet, snowy or damp conditions.
