Maybe you made a few paper airplanes when you were a kid, but I guarantee you’ve never put a motor on one that could turn on a dime and do barrel rolls. POWERUP Toys just launched the POWERUP 4.0 airplane which has added mobile controls and video streaming to motorized paper planes. Not to mention, it will put your friends who fly kites to shame.
The POWERUP 4.0 is the fourth version of the plane and far exceeds its predecessors in terms of flight performance and ease of use. If you combine their previous Kickstarters you’ll see that they’ve raised over 3 million dollars from 45,000 backers. You can count on them to deliver a quality product.
Anyone Can Do It
It’s very easy and intuitive to use:
- Make a Paper airplane (it will fly even if it’s a poorly made one)
- Attach the module to the plane
- Fire up the app and launch the plane
- Guide the plane by tilting your phone
- Be the envy of anyone with a kite
You can attach the POWERUP module to just about anything you think will fly.
What’s New Under The Hood
Flight Assist – the engineers beefed up the module which means smoother flights, even in choppy conditions.
Autopilot Aerobatics – Your plane can do cool tricks like loops, barrel rolls, and drop the jaws of your friends or co-workers with the push of a button in the app.
Double the Power – 2 new high-speed motors were added which means you’ve got double the thrust, additional maneuvering possibilities, and sharper turns.
Analytics –Now you can see the thrust level and turning angles, allowing you to break and make new personal records.
Did We Mention You Can Fly It At Night?
Who is this for?
- Someone seeking a fun meditative activity to do outdoors.

- Anyone who wants to see joy on their loved one’s face after receiving an awesome gift
The bottom line is the POWERUP 4.0 is the coolest toy not on the market. It’s extremely easy to operate and this is the last time you’ll see it If at a significant discount, so head over to Kickstarter and back their campaign while you can still get 43% off.
