This is the worlds first remote controlled paper airplane conversion kit. It has Bluetooth technology and is controlled by a smartphone app. To steer the airplane all you have to do is move the phone to the right or left and operate the throttle lever to go higher or lower. It is easier to operate than traditional remote control airplanes and also features a crash proof design. However, the motor and propeller setup will fit into almost any paper airplane design.
The kit includes a paper template that is easy to fold into the body of the airplane. It also includes a USB cable for charging the motor and a spare rudder and propeller. The app used a Bluetooth SMART seamless connection, has beginner and advanced modes and will work with iOS or Android.
This is a great gift idea for kids and also could be used a fun educational tool. It is designed by Sean Goitein, who funded production through Kickstarter.
