About

POWERUP 4.0 is the smartest, most intuitive paper plane kit we’ve ever made. It makes it possible to fly with ease and smoothness in a variety of conditions. 

Say goodbye to nosedives and choppy flights. We’ve added a new on-board flight computer and 2 new sensors: gyro and accelerometer, combined with 2 thrust vectoring motors. That means flying POWERUP 4.0 is smoother than ever, and can now do all this:


That’s right. POWERUP 4.0 can auto-loop. So you can master tricks and awesome aerobatics by simply pressing a button.



We’ve added 2 high speed motors to POWERUP 4.0. That means you’ve got double the thrust, additional maneuvering possibilities, and sharper turns. 


And together with the flight assist, you can fly just about anything


Now you can learn to fly like a pro. We’re showing you real-time analytics including heading direction, thrust level and turning angles.





We’ve made it a lot easier and way cooler to fly POWERUP 4.0 at night. Optional LED lights will enable you to light up the night - making for awesome visuals and round-the-clock fun.



2 rear wheels and 1 front wheel give your paper plane more style and make for easier takeoff and landing. They also make it possible to launch off of a surface rather than hand-launching. 




We partnered with the best RC hobby vloggers on the planet – FliteTest! They have put together their incredibly creative minds to develop a foam jet inspired by the F22 for the 4.0. It is made from a special laser cut foam board they created and make in the USA.

Intuitive control makes it easy to fly. Simply tilt your phone in the direction you want your plane to fly. It’s really that easy.





Thanks to 3 super successful Kickstarter campaigns,400K+ happy customers, and more than $3.5 million in funding, we decided to bring you a new and improved paper airplane kit to add to your collection.

Shai Goitein - pilot, industrial designer, CEO and founder - decided it was time to level up again. So we listened to feedback from our POWERUP 3.0, POWERUP FPV and POWERUP Dart users, and made this the most powerful, most intuitive, and overall best version yet. Our brand new Autopilot Assist feature makes every flight a smooth one-- even in bad conditions. Real-time analytics help you become a better pilot, and two high speed motors mean you can get super creative with your plane designs. We’ve even added optional LED lights so you can fly at night.

POWERUP 4.0 is breaking paper plane barriers, and we’re excited to share this badass edition with you all.



POWERUP is an incredibly helpful tool when it comes to teaching and learning aeronautics. Students can test multiple designs, analyze their work and improve their planes. Through trial and error, they can understand what makes their plane fly smoother, longer and farther- key lessons in airplane design.

Risks and challenges

We're confident in our ability to deliver POWERUP 4.0 on time. While with all creative & manufacturing process there are many possible challenges and obstacles, we're veteran Kickstarters and so we're well-positioned to expect a wide range of scenarios. Together with the wisdom, talent, and experience of the companies we continue to work with, we've nearly removed our risk altogether.

We already signed agreements with key suppliers and contract manufacturers. The app is already live, and we've already successfully delivered three successful Kickstarter campaigns to their backers, on time and to great customer satisfaction.
