POWERUP DART - App Controlled Paper Airplane. With Tricks.

POWERUP DART is a conversion kit for paper planes that makes them awesome. Fold a small paper plane, attach the DART, and fly around your backyard, office or park with impressive accuracy. Do cool tricks with an awesome paper plane jet you fold yourself.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

  

 

  

 

 We added a crossbar and improved paper airplane templates to make the DART.  The crossbar enables the DART to sustain high G Force during tight maneuvers. Plus, you can adjust the plane's stability by moving the bar up and down the spine. 

 

 

 Super durable with carbon fiber and nylon reinforced plastic and a rubber tip to withstand the force of a crash landing.

 

 

  

 

We’re getting started with production already in early October and will be shipping by mid November to ensure delivery by Christmas and we'll do our best to deliver on time. We're confident, and you can be too, given our stellar delivery record.

The ultimate stocking stuffer? We’ll let you decide.

 

  

 

 

     

 

 * New fully featured app available May 2018. The Dart is compatible with the currently available POWERUP APP.

 

 

 

  

 

International Backers: We will ship POWERUP DART worldwide via trackable post. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region, for more info check the FAQ.

Risks and challenges

We're confident in our ability to deliver the DART on time. While with all creative & manufacturing process there are many possible challanges 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 two successful Kickstarter campaigns to their backers, on time and to great customer satisfaction.
