No doubt it’s a great idea to turn a paper airplane into a smartphone controlled flying machine. How to achieve it? The PowerUp 3.0 Smart Module will be the key.
PowerUp 3.0 is an innovative and interesting smart module designed for various paper airplanes. As we can see from the images, the smart module consists of three main parts including the head with crash-proof bumper, rechargeable battery and circuit board, the propeller at the tail, and a crash-proof carbon fiber frame. Using its patented clips you can easily attach the smart module onto your paper airplane and turn it into a RC toy, while built-in Bluetooth technology allows the smart module to pair with your iPhone in order that you can remotely control your airplane via tilting your smartphone. Apart from that, its rechargeable battery provides 10 minutes of flight between charges.
At present the team of PowerUp 3.0 is raising fund at Kickstarter. Pledging $30 will let you own the smart module and a spare propeller. If you’re interested, jump to Kickstarter official site for more details or check out the following demo video.
