Two-minute-long paper airplane flights!

With the PowerUp Electric Power Module, you can easily toss regular paper airplanes hundreds of yards. Simply fold a standard piece of copier paper into the design of your choice, clip on the PowerUp, and take flight!

Durable electric motor attaches to nearly any design

The PowerUp Electric Power Module is made from a tough fiber carbon composite in order to withstand the occasional rough landing. That being said, only fly your PowerUp in grassy fields. Avoid asphalt and concrete.

The clip-on power module will attach to nearly any paper airplane design. The only restriction is that your design must be shorter than 8 inches. Other than that, feel free to flex your imagination when it comes to your aerogami.

Charges in under twenty seconds!

Prior to takeoff, dock the charger nose into the front receptacle of the power module and the propeller will spin to life. Listen carefully. When the prop is at its highest pitch, give your aircraft a gentle toss and watch it take to the skies!

With a quick 20 second charge, you can send your paper airplane on long distance flights.
Charge the PowerUp by inserting the charger nose into the receptacle for up to 20 seconds.

Super long flights!

Depending on wind and weather conditions, the PowerUp is known to create flights of up to two minutes in duration! Crazy!

During our extensive testing (which did eventually devolve from serious scientific study to grown men acting like children on Christmas Day), we found the PowerUp to be extremely easy to use and powerfully addictive.

However, due to the size of the field we were in (only about 1.5 acres), our flights typically ended after about 30 seconds when the PowerUp would inevitably hit a tree or a car (sorry, neighbors!). Keep in mind that it may take a bit of practice to achieve those long 2-minute flight times, but it's definitely a possibility!

With the PowerUp, you can send your paper airplanes flying for over two minutes.
The PowerUp is capable of extremely long flight times.

Experiment with different designs

Nearly any paper airplane design shorter than 8 inches will work with the PowerUp. There are tons of resources available online that offer instructions for folding standard 8.5x11 or A4 printer paper into aircraft.

The PowerUp's instructions include a simple, yet very effective design that allows you to experiment with aerodynamic adjustments. For instance, you can adjust the design's elevons to create a flight path that produces a wide arc so that your plane (hopefully) stays within your immediate area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is it remote controlled?

Answer: No. The PowerUp Electric Power Module simply adds propulsion (but no active steering) to a standard paper airplane.

Question: Where do I get the airplanes?

Answer: You build them yourself! Standard 8.5x11 or A4 copier paper will work perfectly.

Question: In one of your photos, the plane looked orange. What's up with that?

Answer: We simply used orange copier paper for photographic purposes.

Question: Does this thing really work?

Answer: Yes, indeed! We tested it thoroughly and were highly impressed. This toy is super fun.

Question: Does the PowerUp break easily?

Answer: While the PowerUp is made from carbon fiber composites, it should not be flown in parking lots or near buildings. You should use the PowerUp in grassy fields so that a rare bad landing does not damage your PowerUp.
