I had read about the PowerUp in Popular Science. Soon after that my 3 year old overheard me telling my wife about it and got so excited that he saved money in his piggy bank for months and months in order to buy a "paper airplane propeller". He got enough change saved up, and we ordered it directly from the PowerUp website just a couple of weeks ago. While it was shipping, I did some research online, and saw the negative reviews here on Amazon. I watched videos online of the device flying, so I knew it COULD work, but I got a sense it might not be easy, as clearly people here on Amazon and elsewhere were struggling to get it to fly.

I didn't want my 3 year old to be disappointed when it arrived, so I practiced folding planes ahead of time, just to make sure I was ready. Turns out I wasn't great at it. Even the most basic designs didn't fly well. It took a lot of tweaking and practice to get a plane that flew well on its own (and the Power Up instructions insist that your plane must fly well on it's own before the propeller is even attached). I learned about using "flaps" and a "rudder" to correct imperfections in the folding. I realized that different weights of paper really affect the flight as well. Pretty soon, I had planes that glided nicely across the house and was ready for the Power Up to arrive.

When the PowerUp came, we headed to the park to give it a whirl. I brought four pre-folded paper airplanes that I had made earlier, and that I knew flew well. We slid the PowerUp on, charged it up, and gave it a toss. It took a bit of a nose dive, so I raised the flaps in the back (just as the instructions suggest doing if the plane is nose diving).

This thing is a blast!
I bought one prior to taking my son to a cub scout outing.
The first tries were less than stellar. This was not the PowerUp's fault...we just made a poor airplane - the boys made suggestions on how to improve the plane and through trial and error we tweaked the plane into a flying machine of high quality. Our first flight was mere seconds, but over time we increased the flight time on the plane we made to almost 3 minutes.
After that, they spent hours chasing after the plane.
Recharge times were fast enough to keep the boys happy, and the ability to discharge the device was very helpful at lunch time.
As far as durability: 12 boys ages 10-12 years old bounced it off of a few trees, pulled on it, hit the parking lot a few times, and even got it stuck on the roof once. (I know it says indoor use, but...) The PowerUp 2.0 is still running.

My son now has a new goal in life, he want to be an Aeronautical Engineer. I am now happily subjected to my 11 year old telling me about how ailerons work and how we can optimize the airfoil effect of a paper airplane wing to best increase lift.

Some toys are worth more than what you pay for them.
Thanks PowerUp.

I purchased five PowerUp 2.0s for a class I was teaching. The students had fun trying to make their paper airplanes fly. Durability was not a problem, but it is difficult to make the airplanes fly well. Perhaps more practice or a better paper airplane design is needed. Flying outside is really difficult if there is a light breeze. The great thing was that the little motors worked well and allowed the everyone to imagine what might be possible.

We had a chance to play with this toy for about 10 minutes before it died. Our paper airplane landed on the ground on about the 6th throw and the motor stopped completely. Now the unit is dead and does nothing but get warm when trying to charge it up.

Being that our son is a huge fan of paper airplanes, he was so excited about this conversion kit. I think this product has a lot of potential, but it needs to be WAY more durable.

This is a very neat little toy.

I know a lot of the others on here are having difficulty getting their planes to fly, but with basic understanding of Aerodynamic principals, you can get this propeller to carry a paper plane for a significant distance. If you build them right, you can get your designs to fly several hundred feet!

The designs that come with the product don't always work amazingly well, so you should experiment with your own.

It's key to get the largest wings possible to provide as much lift as possible since this propeller does not have an enormous amount of thrust. Then you also want to make sure your airplane's center of mass is in the correct spot, since if its too far back you will have your plane go straight up and dive, while if it's too far forward, it will dive straight off.

Just like it says in the instructions, you want your plane to be able to fly well with the engine turned off, before you can expect it to fly well with the engine turned on.

I gave this to my grandson for christmas. He liked it and we made a bunch of different airplanes to fly. it worked OK. it's kind of heavy for regular 8x10" paper. we had better results with a legal size sheet.
