When was the last time you made a paper airplane? Probably not that long ago considering that you, dear reader, are probably an adult. That being said, paper airplanes are fun and you should be able to play with an adult version of them. Check out the Powerup 3.0, the smartphone controlled paper airplane.
So most people probably pick up a drone (or five) for all of their hobby flying needs. Not everyone is that serious but most people will agree, controlling the flight of things is really, really fun. That’s why kites are still a legit pastime. This is a simple to use alternative to your standard drone.
With this set you get five plane templates and build it yourself (no welding required!). Once you’re done, the whole thing is controlled via smartphone. To change directions all you need to do is tilt your phone. Easy, peasy lemon squeezy! It connects via Bluetooth and works with a variety of phones for both Apple and Android. The device charges via USB. The Powerup 3.0 is $54.
