PRESENTATION OF POWER UP 3.0
The PowerUp 3.0 is a very lightweight module combining a Bluetooth sensor equipped with a propeller to be fixed on a paper airplane to transform it into a remote controlled airplane!
With this kit, you can control the rudder of your paper airplane using the gyroscope of your Smartphone (the application is available under iOS and Android).
DESIGN AND ERGONOMIC
Extremely light, the aircraft's mount has two distinct parts. In the front: the head with the Bluetooth transmitter, the plug to recharge the module and the various components.
At the back: the propeller.
HOW DOES POWERUP 3.0 WORK ?
It is simple of use, there is 4 steps :
1. Fold the plane: Simply fold a piece of sheet of paper into a paper airplane
2. Attach the Smart Module to your paper plane with the patented clips underneath the Smart Module.
3. Connect the app: Start the app to connect to the Smart Module with your iPhone.
4. Fly It: Push throttle to full and launch the paper airplane high up into the sky. Tilt your smartphone to the left or to the right to steer your plane, increase or reduce throttle to go up or down.
The PowerUp is fully controlled via the Smartphone application. The module operates with a Lithium-Polymer battery weighing less than 3 grams and allowing more than 10 minutes of autonomy.
The aircraft is controlled via a mobile application. It is available for free on Android and iOS. Simply turn on the Bluetooth and turn on the airplane for the connection. The application is designed to resemble a cockpit: it displays the strength of the Bluetooth signal, the state of the battery as well as a throttle to increase the speed of the propeller. Tilt your smartphone right or left to control the rudder and change the direction of your aircraft using the phone's gyroscope. More information in the application tab on the left.
PowerUp 3.0 is one of those objects whose installation of components, in this case the wings, is an integral part of the amusement process. Everything is explained in the notice and also in video. With all that, impossible not to get there! The first times, it may take a little time but it will not exceed ten minutes.

1. I am a new pilot, what are the best aircrafts designed for me?
There are three perfect models for beginners: The Invader; The Trainer and The Weinstein.
To know how each aircraft behaves, we have detailed each of them here. This includes speed, flight time and maneuverability. We recommend that you start with airplanes with low maneuverability.
2.Can I use the PowerUp 3.0 with an android device?
Yes, PowerUp 3.0 will work with Android 4.3 or higher. Your smartphone or tablet needs to support Bluetooth 4.0.
3. On which device does the iOS work?
The iOS app works with any device that has Bluetooth 4.0. It will work on the following devices:
iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPod Touch 5th Gen or newer, iPad 3rd Gen or newer (Retina), iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina.
It will not work with iPod Nano, Shuffle or Classic.
4. Could you include a small camera in the design of the PowerUp 3.0?
We’re currently evaluating all the ideas for stretch goals and we will publish the list of the 10 best stretch goals which we will let our backers choose from on December 17.
5. Why don't you support devices pre Android 4.3?
Android 4.3 is the first official version that supports Bluetooth 4.0. This is also why it was mentioned in the stretch goal. Pre-4.3 backers, we will try to add support for as many devices as possible. We just want to start with the official one first.

Shai Goitein is the creator of PowerUp. First a pilot then inventor, he launched the toy startup PowerUp Toys in 2011. That's how he saw how people of all ages were fascinated by the magic of the flight. Inspired, he began working on a timeless toy that captured emotion, sensations and wonder.
PowerUp technology successfully recreates this magic and allows the imagination to take flight. When it needed funds and investors, the company turned to the popular Kickstarter participative financing services site, collecting the superb $ 1.2 million! The design of its robust, durable and crash-proof models makes maneuvering easier, making the experience more entertaining than traditional helicopters and remote-controlled aircraft that are more bulky and more battery-powered. The PowerUp 3.0 Bluetooth Smart Module turns planes into ordinary paper into motorized devices that you can control directly from your smartphone.
It is also an educational experience - PowerUp 3.0 mixes the art of origami with the art of physics and incorporates all elements of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics). This unique combination enables schools and teachers to introduce their students to the basic principles of flight, aerodynamics and take-off. With a range of 55 meters and a flight capacity of 10 minutes, PowerUp 3.0 is the first choice in flight.
