Tailor Toys Announces PowerUp 3.0 Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit

Thursday, February 14th 2013. | Toys & Games

What do you think about paper airplane? It’s dull, it’s lame, and can’t maintain its position on the air for more than 10 seconds. If that is your answer, I’m afraid you have to correct it, because PowerUp 3.0 Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit has gone official and is ready to turn any plain paper airplane into a cool RC toy.

PowerUp 3.0 Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit by Tailor Toys

Originally developed by Tailor Toys, this kit only has to be attached to any paper airplaneto make it controllable. It doesn’t ship with any special controllers. Instead, it’s accompanied by an app that you have to install on your smartphone. All the signals are delivered via Bluetooth, so you can’t actually fly it too far from you. Still, enabling a mere paper airplane to fly around without hitting the ground is pretty impressive and if you show it to the kids in the neighborhood, they must beg you to teach them the magic. Check out the demo below!

Flight times are claimed to be as long as 10 minutes but Tailor Toys didn’t get down into more details. I suspect it sports little ailerons which allow users to change its course of flight with ease. In any case, you will be able to get your hands on it in August. The starting price for this sleek PowerUp 3.0 Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit is $49.99. Now you don’t have to buy all those cheap made-in-China RC copters that break within the first ten minutes after unboxing. With this kit, you can make as many RC airplane troops as you want!
