Straighten Up and Fly Right

Power Up Toys

What It Is: Drones are all the rage right now, but really, electronic planes and other flying gizmos have been beloved by kids and the young at heart for decades now. The cool part is drone technology is being applied to enhance electronic toys, like with this cool flying paper airplane from PowerUp. Not only is it easy to assemble and get set to take flight, it can actually be controlled from your Bluetooth-enabled tablet or smartphone. And it can shoot wide angle video and photos, as well as live stream if you fancy.

Who It’s For: Your nephew, to zip around his neighbourhood with. Your filmmaking brother, to add a new angle to his movies. Your spouse, to harken back to their troublemaking high school days.

What It Costs: The latest iteration of this flying paper airplane is currently available for preorder at $199 USD.

Where It’s At: The PowerUp Toys website.
