The PowerUp 3.0 is a very unique piece of equipment in the fact that with it, a person can control a paper airplane with their smartphone device. This is a very fresh concept, as most people are typically used to being able to fly model airplanes, even with their smartphones, but rarely has any product come out like that, and because of that, it makes it a very valuable and cool item to have in your possession. With its lightweight body and easy complexion, it makes it easy to carry around and a breeze to set up. The PowerUp 3.0 is definitely a new spin on flying airplanes outside (or inside) and really creates for an exciting time in kids and adults of all ages.

Who Would Buy The PowerUp 3.0?

Most model airplanes are catered to either older teenagers and adults, or folks that know what they’re doing when it comes to flying a remote plane. With the PowerUp 3.0, it’s more catered to a general demographic, and is very easy to be handled by just about anyone.

Things we like about the PowerUp 3.0:

One of the nicest things about the PowerUp 3.0 is that it is catered to a large audience. You don’t have to have a lot of knowledge about remote planes, and this is a good starting place for kids looking to get into the activity. It’s also good for adults who are just looking for a way to have some outdoor fun, perhaps with their kids. The PowerUp 3.0 is inexpensive, making it not a burden on your pocket, and is very easy to put together.

Things we did not like about the PowerUp 3.0

While there are a lot of great things to say about PowerUp 3.0, it does pose some concerns. The kit does have some pretty small parts that do come apart, and can be easily lost if not careful. This may also pose a small danger to small children. It also does run off of 3 AA batteries, and because the device is so small, it’s a bit of a drag that it uses 3 batteries, and not just 2.
