On this paper plane, attached two electric motors that can make the plane fly up to 91 meters with a durability of 10 minutes. In addition, you can control this aircraft like a pilot flying an airplane.
Through a connected smartphone, the display on the application looks like a fighter jet cockpit. You can even feel like you are actually controlling a plane using Google Cardboard VR.
Powerup X FPV comes with 4 paper templates so that users can do their own designs with their own hands. Then attach a special device to put up the camera on the plane.
Meanwhile, the user’s smartphone is connected to the camera through its official application and placed on a VR device. After the plane is flown, the user can see from the perspective of the paper plane from their own eyes.
Powerup X FPV can fly at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour and is quite powerful compared to ordinary toy aircraft, the company provides a 1-year guarantee. In addition to viewing, users can also control this toy plane from a connected cellphone.
