Took me back to child hood dream of flying together with my iPhone. Designed my own airplane to fly. Tons of fun with my nephew.
I purchased the Power Up 3.0 as a model for engineering design. The powerful motor and app make it ideal for students to work with while developing an understanding of how paper airplane design will affect flight. There are two models for paper airplanes included, but other models can be created and tried.
It is difficult to get the included designs to fly. Flaps are of critical importance! Once mastered, this paper airplane engine is a lot of fun!
Fun - a bit glitchy, but worth the price
I've had this for a few weeks and have flown it several times. The kit comes with paper and patterns for a couple of different airplane styles, but they're not all equal. The best (easiest to fly) that I've found so far was not part of the kit. There are a number of websites that have different styles of airplanes.
The Powerup 3.0 works pretty well most of the time. It's not great if there's much wind (no surprise, it's a paper airplane), and range is limited (you're working on bluetooth, so about 50-60 feet. Also, I've had some connection issues at times where it doesn't want to connect. However, if I turn off the motor and restart my phone, then try again it always connects.
Considering the price tag, this little toy provides a lot of fun for a very reasonable price.
Surreal...it's the dingo's kidneys...recommended.
A bit cautious before buying..items arrived on time and well packaged. However, flying a remote-controlled PAPER 'plane is just brilliant! Need to sort my manual dexterity...never was much good at such t things, even Jumping Flea. Totally recommended.
My grandson saw the plane on your web site. I purchased it for Christmas and he loves it.
This little device is awesome!
There is no limitation of what paper plane you want to build and than equip with the remote control.
Keeps the kids connected of being creative and at the same time interested because it's 'electronic'.
Delivery was easy and fast.
Would always buy again.
I bought the PowerUp 3.0 for my buddy for Christmas, because as kids we were always making paper airplanes and dreaming of ways to improve them. I've gotten him goofy things in the past which generally haven't lived up to their hype, so he was hesistsnt to get too excited. We folded up the plane they recommended, and went outside and to our surprise, it actually flew! You can steer the plane left and right, and also adjust the throttle to make it climb! We spent a couple of hours flying a paper airplane out front, just like we used to do as kids. After, he said it was the best Christmas gift he's received!
Timely shipping and it arrived in perfect condition it's the only thing my grandson asked for
This is exactly what my son wanted and the price was the best on the web. If (when) the plane crashes, all he has to do is fold a new on and he's of and running again. The control with the cell phone makes it an ideal "time waster" when he's waiting for a call or on a program to compile......it's the complete "Geek Toy"!
I bought a paper plane it was nit very expensive and a great idea. Remember when you were a kid just having fun well kit vines with paper planes yiu just girls slinger the lines and great designs euro fighter it f22 you can make your own designs and just skip this plastic rid and propeller and head if plane is a battery snd blue tooth operated from your mobile from a application down load. Ten minutes to charge up from any use port and good to go flying quite a long distance for 15 minutes . I said it fir my child but I'm 57 year old man and it was really fir me.cane in a smart box and arrived with in 5 days. I liked it do much I'm ordering a few more so I'm never without it
Waaaay too complicated to actually get up in the air flying. We spent an hour trying to get some air time, instead we spent most our time trying to find pieces of the plane that bust off on crashes. MAKE SURE you buy spare parts!..
Made paper airoplanes as a kid and thought this would be fun. Queried wheteher it would work with my tablet and they are right, it does. Makes others flying standard indoor models look on in amazement that this can fly. Great fun trimming and flying.
This was purchased as an Xmas present for someone who is nuts about aircraft and flying, and I cannot therefore comment on the item too fully as I must not open the packaging!
However, outwardly it looks just the present for the man (in this case - not a child!) who will open it on the big day, and he will be as happy as a sandboy!
From what can be seen, it appears that this is a well-made item, as well as being a good concept which will provide a great deal of fun.
This item is so fun for any techie or aviation minded person. Someone in our office personally had one and we were looking for a conference door prize. BINGO very well liked
Great fun once you build the right plane and choose the right day with no wind.
Little tricky to learn but my son loves it
It is very funny. My little bro likes it. We can create the plane by our imagination and it can fly. So cool.
A fun gadget for someone who has everything else
A fun gadget for someone who has everything else. If I win the £20 voucher for writing this review, I'd be sure to use the voucher buying another one.
Like the idea and how you can DIY your plane, would be better if it has more customized plane templates
This is my stress reliever. I take my phone and a paper airplane, go outside and fly it around the backyard and it just de-stresses me. I love PowerUp 3.0! And MobileFun.com is reliable and quick at shipping my order. I even had a defective unit and they replaced it without hassle. I highly recommend PowerUp 3.0 and MobileFun.com!
Fun gift for the Aviation Enthusiast
This is an odd review: I've purchased THREE of these PowerUp Controlled Paper Planes, and I have NO idea if it's a good product. Why am I writing this review, then? Because it's a great little gift for people who like planes, fly planes, and/or have a child-like excitement for planes!
I gave one as a retirement gift and 1 each went to a guy and gal who were both turning 50, so I've decided it's a great gift for adults who have everything but a motorized paper plane!
As I've just begun handing them out like candy, no time has elapsed as to their recipient's success flying them. However, one will be given on a cruise and I hope we don't fly it out into the ocean to never see it again!
Great service. Weak product
We received the product within 5 days and could track it so great work and thanks. Why can't Australian companies do this.
Sadly the product broke within 3 flights and will be returning it. Good concept though just need to be more robust
Tower, this is Ghost rider requesting a flyby.
That’s a negative Ghost rider, the flight pattern is full.
This power 3.0 is amazing. It was so easy I had my three year old daughter flying it with in minutes.
If you can fold a paper airplane and download an app, you can become Maverick.
I got so good at flying (a day of practice) I was able to demonstrate how easily it can be flown indoors at a convention for STEM. (Science Technology Engineering Math)
But it's best if you keep it outdoors and not in heavy wind.
Great intro level flyer and it doesn't break the bank either.
MobileFun is the cheapest place to find this power 3.0. Grab one and enjoy flying!
I love this thing! It is my stress reliever and I really enjoy going outside and flying a paper airplane around the backyard. Well worth the money!
Lots of fun-Takes practice
Bought it to play with my 4 year old grandson. Great fun folding the different planes and getting them to fly on there own but put on the motor and the excitement goes way up. The only problem is a tree grabbed it and by the time I got it down the prop was missing. The package comes with one replacement so I bought a package of extra props. Find a large open space with no trees to practice. The battery is small so it only runs for about 5 minutes before needing a recharge. It needs a USB port to recharge so be prepared. The iPhone app is easy to use and control the plane with some practice. I'm thinking about getting another one to build the twin engine model which is also supported by the iPhone app. All in all it is really a kick to see a paper airplane soaring around your head.
I've purchased several of these now and they are a blast to play with. Now, I'm buying them as gifts for friends. I'm trying different plan designs and just having a ball playing with them. You must buy one!
Very fast delivery and great to use. Thank you for the fast delivery and service.
Fun once it gets going...
For the first 30 minutes that I had the PowerUp kit, the paper planes I made (from the PowerUp tutorials) always seemed to nose dive into the ground. After spending 10 minutes on their 'how-to' videos on YouTube, my planes started to 'glide'. Sadly it ended up gliding into my pool. Oops. I was at least 20 metres away from the pool. (Sometimes the motor doesn't want to co-operate with the app and continues to fly at whatever speed you last set it at; minus the control of the rudder.)
To be fair, it functions as advertised and only died due to my own negligence.
Don't expect to pick up the kit and start flying paper planes like an ace pilot. Fine-tuning and adjusting is pretty essential to the success of this kit. It was fun for the 2 minutes I had it going...
Fantastic service and product
I ordered this item to replace one bought on a different site. The item contained not only the item but replacement parts. I will always look at this site before purchasing electronic items.
Bought for gift could not get if to fly very sad about that
It was a great idea the motor to heavy for the material
This paper airplane really rocks! It's a bit hard to fly it in the beginning but once you mastered it, it's easy!
unfortunately none of my 3 boys, ages 12-14, were able to get theirs to work. the propellers etc.. work but they don't seem to actually be able to carry the paper plane.
I bought this as a gift. It was a neat concept but the nose was so heavy it was described as a lawn dart. Not worth the money.
The product was a complete failure. It did not charge up or operate
I emailed a customer service person where I purchased the product...no reply. I now own a paper airplane that will not fly under power and want my money back or a replacement powertrain. It does not accept a charge and does not work. My hopes to have it fly for my 9 grandchildren at Christmas are dashed.
Please reply with a satisfactory solution.
I purchase the power up controlled paper airplane for my son. I was a little worried for the price it wouldn't be worth it. My son really likes it and it works well. He loves making paper planes and with this it makes it even more fun. It came quickly in the mail. I used their e mail to ask a question about delivery since we were purchasing close to Christmas. They responded right away.
Responsive, easy to use, good prices
Lots of fun better outdoors than inside
Neat product, nerve racking delivery time
After a 3 week delivery with no tracking information on the order, I almost gave up but this neat little plane enhancer came in good shape. Maybe get it somewhere else...
This item is a gift for a friend's grandson. He is a bright and lovely boy and I wanted to buy him something special and something that would make him think. He will not get it until Christmas Day but I am sure he will love it.
A Marvellous App Controlled Paper Airplane
This is a great little gizmo which will provide hours of fun for you and the kids. This is so good that I've bought 2 more twin packs.
When i saw your item. I like your site and item thats why i bought powerup 3.0 by this site
very good product does what it says
paper aeroplanes just got serious!
This is awesome! you can design you best paper aeroplane and then fly it around the house and control it! Finally aeroplane design is more than a simple 60 second flight. rechargeable from your pc or standard USB charger, so the designing and tweaking never ends. You may want to keep it from the cats!
This is n gift for my son, have not given it to him yet, but he loves making paper planes, so he will absolutely love this!!
good idea and lots of fun
I am a member of a model aero club and find this unit great fun to use. great for holidays with the caravan nice and compact.also am going to build a foam indoor model for the power unit.and cause havoc at the scale events ( a scale paper dart) should be great fun during the winter evenings . I had not heard of this product before.My cousin in America had one and I bought one as soon as I returned from holiday in America. Ken Reeves
Flies well, but after 10 charges, it loses at least 50% power.
I bought this for my husband for his birthday, and we've both had a lot of fun with it. You fold your own paper airplane on sturdy paper provided, then put it on the airplane chassis provide. It's easy to get the hang of to fly, but very fun and quickly rewarding. I don't think it would work well for young kids, but for older kids and adults, it's a lot of fun!
Great product as detailed on the webpage and delivered on time.
My son loves this thing. I was skeptical about it but it works as advertised. He can fly paper airplanes around the yard and control them. I think it is a little overpriced but it definitely works well.
Excellent product, great fun.
I found this company whilst searching for a gift for my partner. They offered the lowest price for the product I wanted and this included delivery. I was very impressed with the delivery speed and the quality of service that was provided. I would have liked to have seen a video of this product in action, however this was easily found elsewhere. Overall I was very impressed with the product and the service provided, delivery was fast and good value, and I was updated via email once the item had been dispatched.
