Funding Friday: Mobile App Controlled Paper Airplane

I just backed this project. I looks like so much fun. I used to love paper airplanes when I was a kid.

    it seems like a great project but at a mispriced price point. “retailing for $45” =/ seems too much for something you’d happily buy a pack of two for your young kids to toy around with, hell even for office wars too

    Love the video! It’s gonna make this project take off. Seriously, the product will fly off the shelves.

      Enjoyed the video. Now wondering if it could do a 4G inverted dive with a MIG-28 at a range of…oh maybe 2 metres ?

    I bought the Powerup 3 with mixed results. I loved paper airplanes as a kid and wanted to introduce my son to a really cool paper airplane. The plane flies but is really hard to control. Most flights only lasted a few seconds, before stalling or veering to one side or the other and crashing. I was curious to see their new video and noticed that they never showed a flight lasting more than a few seconds…I’m tempted to try the new version.

    Yes, IIRC, the Wright Brothers concluded that for progress in “flight” it needed to be “controlled, powered flight” and for those two, controlled and powered, regarded the controlled as the more challenging. So, e.g., the paper airplane appears not to have movable “control surfaces”.
