About this project
Thanks to all our backers for making PowerUp FPV a reality!
Funding has ended on Kickstarter, but you can visit poweruptoys.com to order a PowerUp FPV and many more products from our collection.
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. Well, sort of. It’s you, flying atop your very own paper airplane... It’s PowerUp FPV: the first ever paper airplane drone with a live streaming camera!
PowerUp FPV lets you experience flight as if you were sitting in the cockpit of your very own paper airplane. Wearing your smartphone with a head-mounted display (Google cardboard viewer included), you see what your plane sees, controlling your paper drone with intuitive movements of your head.
We teamed up with the leading minds at Parrot® to create the world's most incredible live streaming technology, giving you the thrill and exhilaration of flying up to 300 feet in the air! Pledge today and join us in experiencing flight like you never have before. It’s about to get real - really, really real - and we hope you come along for the ride!
There are 3 options to control your drone:
With PowerUp FPV you can create your own drone designs. Faster? More control? Aerobatics? you decide.
When we met the Parrot team this year at CES, we had a burning desire to join forces. As the brilliant creators of the AR Drone and paving the way in Wi-Fi streaming technologies, there is no partner we’d rather have than Parrot to help develop a high-quality streaming experience for our product. We’re thrilled to say that Parrot accepted the challenge, and with their Wi-Fi and live streaming know-how, we created a state-of-the-art board built for your paper airplane. PowerUp FPV’s quality, durability and seamless streaming is no joke. In fact, it’s seriously awesome. Now you can have the first ever paper airplane drone with a live streaming camera.
International Backers: We will ship PowerUp FPV worldwide. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region.
2 years ago, we launched a Kickstarter to bring the first ever smartphone-controlled paper plane to the world. With over 21,000 backers, many late nights, and even more early mornings, we delivered just that with PowerUp 3.0. Today, we need your help to take our high-flying (and highly ambitious) FPV paper drones to the next level. Join us in pushing the limits of paper planes - and the human imagination - even further with PowerUp FPV!
We’ve tested our product, and we’re confident that PowerUp FPV will blow minds. But we’re far from getting this little wonder onto shelves. With your help, we can send PowerUp FPV into production with the best manufacturing tools. (We wouldn’t do it any other way.) Save up to 20% off retail price and be the first to fly with PowerUp FPV.

Risks and challenges
This isn't our first rodeo and we learned some great things from our last Kickstarter. Shipping is difficult and some countries will likely have delayed receving thanks to customs. Also, as our products are manufactured in a factory, we're subject to normal manufacturing delays, including national holidays. However, since we launched our last product, we have already identified the best producers, shipping agents and local manufacturing partners to help us deliver the product as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
