POWERUP 4.0: Paper Airplane You Can Fly by a Smartphone


I bet a lot of you have built a paper airplane during your school years. Now, this little toy just got a new upgrade. The POWERUP 4.0 is a paper airplane kit that comes with a twin motor to spin the propeller. Essentially, it powers the airplane and allows for much longer flight duration.

But then how to control the airplane? Do I have to accept wherever the wind blows the aircraft? Well, thankfully, the system has a Bluetooth module that can connect to a smartphone you (probably) holding right now.

The internal battery is reckoned to be good for 10 minutes of flying. It has a wireless range claimed up to 70 meters (230ft). And with a top speed of 32kmh (20mph), it provides a whole new level of fun from a rather simple toy.
