The PowerUp FPV is an innovative and pretty fun app-controlled flying drone that works with your paper planes. As we can see from the images, the drone shows off a compact design along with a durable carbon-fiber and nylon reinforced frame in order to fit on various paper airplanes and prevent it from the damage of crashes.

Most importantly, the flying drone features an integrated VGA camera that delivers you real-time live streaming or records videos with audio. When controlling it in gamepad mode, you can also use it to capture photos, but you have to manually adjust the direction of the camera before flight. In addition, PowerUp FPV comes with 550mAh rechargeable battery, 6 sheets of paper templates, 4 spare propellers, and microSD card.
