It’s time to fly your paper airplane just like would do in your school days! 😀 As simple as it sounds, flying a paper airplane is just not a cakewalk. The process involves some mechanics, for instance, to keep flying your paper airplane in one straight direction, you need to ensure that its tail is perfectly straight or not distorted in any way.
Paper Plane Designs
There are 100’s of styles of paper airplanes, some of these could be found on sites like Fun Paper Airplanes, Fold N Fly etc… Each of these paper plane designs have their own unique way of flying the paper airplanes! :-O Flying a paper airplane indeed works of the theory of learning curve! 🙂
But, it all gets simplified by just using PowerUp 3.0, which allows you to fly your paper airplane around with your smartphone! 🙂 🙂
Do you know? -> Red Bull Paper Wings 2015 is all set to take your pilot instincts on a much higher level! :-O If you think you can fly your airplanes the highest, the longest, and the best, you need to know everything about the competition just now, and win a chance to fly your paper airplane in Salzburg / Austria! 😎
Starting with Easy Paper Airplanes #PowerUp3.0
As a school kid, I used to always love fling paper airplanes; and now with the age, we have the technology named PowerUp 3.0, a smart way to fly paper plane! 😎 PowerUp 3.0 comes with a 60 yard ranged Bluetooth controller, with which you can fly your paper airplane using an Android / iOS app! :-O However using PowerUp 3.0 is not an easy task. Initially it went a little difficult for me to fly the paper airplane using PowerUp 3.0, but after few flights, I along with my friends, we had the best time ever! 🙂 😎
So after a week’s experience, here I present you a small, 4 stepped, how-to-use PowerUp 3.0 guide for now:
- Make a paper airplane: Fold a piece of paper into a fine paper airplane.
- Attach the Smart Module: Attach your self-made paper airplane with the patented clips of the Smart Module with clips put underneath the Smart Module.
- Connect the Smart Module: Launch the app to connect your smartphone and the Smart Module.
- Fly the airplane: Launch your airplane high up by pushing throttle to full. Steer your paper plane by tilting your smartphone either to the right or to the left. Go up and down by increasing or decreasing throttle.
Initially you can keep your motor somewhere between 50-60% to get a smooth fly. Although it depends upon the weather of the day, for a windy / sunny day, you will have to propel your motors at different %’s.
Flying a paper airplane using PowerUp 3.0 is not as easy as its sounding. The real difficulties would arise only on your 1st smart flight! 😀 Thus I’d highly recommend you to bring the official manual (the one you get with the module) with you in your first flight. Since there are several details that you would need to consider for fine-tuning your paper airplane initially, of course for a good flight.
You can also check the video tutorials of PowerUp 3.0 on their official website.
You would indeed enjoy using PowerUp 3.0 if you like experimentation. This is the key to having a tremendous experience with PowerUp 3.0, as you need to keep working on your plane between crashes to get the best possible performance out of it.
In addition, both iOS and Android apps worked well with me; I tried the PowerUp 3.0 app on the iPhone 5s and Moto G2. But I’d still suggest you to check your phone’s compatibility wrt Bluetooth, as PowerUp 3.0 uses Bluetooth Smart, which is sort of higher version of Bluetooth! 😛
