The POWERUP 4.0 is a sophisticated smartphone-controlled thrust module that will turn your dad's simple paper airplane into an agile aerobatic flying machine.
Moreover, POWERUP can fly almost anything. Create and test new designs from paper, light balsa wood or foam. Plus - the POWERUP sophisticated flight control app provides a unique learning and flying experience (See FEATURES).
Our Captain Daddy kit includes everything your dad will need to enjoy hours of building and flying. He would start with flying his own paper planes and progress to the Lockheed Marteen F-22 foam model when ready to step up his game. Check IN THE BOX for details.

Have questions about the 4.0? We’ve got the answers.
Very. Tilt your phone left or right to control which way you turn or use the tuning setting in the app to get extra control over your flight.
It is really up to you as long as you keep the wing weight below 0.71oz /20grams. POWERUPquick connect accessory systemlets you connect the POWERUP 4.0 module to thin materials like paper and to thicker materials like cardboard, foam and balsa wood in many different ways.
We support any iOS or Android device that has Bluetooth 4.0 and a gyro.
We designed the POWERUP module to survive most crashes. It’s made with durable carbon fiber rods and polypropylene plastic. The bumper is made with rubber. Still though… no machine is unbreakable. 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.
No. The FAA only requires registration for drones that weigh 0.5 lb/ 250 grams or more.The POWERUP 4.0 weighs less than 19 grams.
