The POWERUP modules are made of durable material: Carbon fiber rods, Nylon reinforced with glass fiber. They It can withstand some impressive crashes. Having said that, no flying machine is unbreakable. Flying on a soft surface will prolong the POWERUP modules life. A spare propeller for repairing a damaged one is included in the box. Paper wing damaged ? just fold a new one.
Only POWERUP 3.0 and 4.0 are controlled by an app on your smartphone. The airplane is connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth. Ascending & descending is achieved by increasing or decreasing the propeller speed, by sliding the throttle on the screen up or down. Steering is done by a rudder, tilting the phone right or left will tilt the rudder and steer the airplane.
The POWERUP 2.0 is a free flying plane and therefore does not require a smartphone, this is Ideal for parents or teachers that want to introduce the science of flight without the use of a smartphone or tablet devices. The plane is adjusted before flight and once in the air, it will typically fly in large circles.
POWERUP 2.0 lets you take a part in the magic of flying, constructing your very own aircraft. It involves a few steps: Folding, adjusting and finally launching your plane. A new pilot will need to take some time learning to trim and adjust the paper airplane in order to achieve a smooth flight pattern. The more you fly, the better you get.
POWERUP 2.0 will convert you paper airplane into a Free Flight electric paper airplane with a flight time over 30 seconds
POWERUP 3.0 is smartphone controlled using a rudder and propeller.
POWERUP 4.0 has 2 motors and thus has double the power of POWERUP 3.0. Steering is achieved by differential thrust. The 4.0 is by far the easiest to control and in windy conditions thanks to it's onboard flight computer and sensors.The 4.0 can connect to unlimited wing designs made of paper foam balsa and cardboard thanks to its quick connect accessories including nightflight and takeoff and landing gear option.
As they say "Play is a powerful teacher" You don't need to be a rocket scientist to give your kids a strong foundation in aeronautics. Crafting your plane from a sheet of paper, adjusting it for a perfect flight and controlling it provides a challenging yet fulfilling educational experience.
No need to register, all POWERUP modules weigh less than 0.42 oz/12 grams, the FAA requires registration for drones that weigh 0.5 lb/250 grams or more.
POWERUP 2.0 is not controlled but will usually fly in circles around you until it lands. We highly recommend to avoid flying on windy days. Wind may carry away your airplane until it lands. Also avoid flying next to trees and buildings.
For the best experience and precise and smooth flight maneuvers it is best to fly on a non-windy day, alternatively a closed space like a gym or atrium is ideal.
Yes you can. POWERUP 2.0 is much more fun to fly with friends. Try competing in flight duration or distance. You can fly as many POWERUP's as you like together.
