Not satisfied that your paper airplane only lasts for a few seconds in the air? The guys from PowerUp felt the same way, too, and that’s why they made motorized paper airplanes. Now with many years of making these airplanes, PowerUp is now on their 4th generation of paper airplanes.
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
The PowerUp 4.0 consists of a lightweight airframe, along with a pair of motors at the rear and a sophisticated flight control computer in its nose. Working in concert with a smartphone app, it can automatically smooth out flight thanks to the use of both a gyroscopic sensor and an accelerometer. It can even stabilize flight in windy conditions.
The kit includes a design for a basic, reliable paper airplane, but it will work with your own custom designs too, and the motors are powerful enough to fly models made out of cardboard, styrofoam, or balsa wood as well. While the app and computer smarts aboard the plane should keep your flight stable, the frame’s durable nylon and carbon fiber construction means it’ll survive in the event of a crash landing.
Now that’s epic.
