Now here comes the PowerUp 3.0. It has a device with a Smart Module, which has a small propeller and rudder that you can put on your plane for some extra oomph in your flight. Now I don’t know whether or not this can make a paper airplane fly like a toy model airplane, but it certainly sounds better than a good throwing arm, my Source does say that the plane can keep going for about 10 minutes, provided the Smart Module is fully charged.
The Smart Module works via Bluetooth, and you can control the paper airplane via iOS app. According to my Source, there is all kinds of cool controls like those of a real airplane like “a thrust indicator, range indicator, magnetic compass, artificial horizon, and a lever for ascending and descending. Tilting your iOS device to the right or left controls the steering”.
This PowerUp 3.0 was apparently a crowdfunded project that recently met its $50,000 funding goal. It is now available for about $40.
