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). The second flight was a success and was in the air for at least 10 seconds, which sounds quick but is actually quite a long time when you experience it. The attached video is from one of the first flights. Even my three year old can use it and (although it helps quite a bit if I put him on my shoulders so he can get a higher initial launch).
I think the big issue here is that people have a misconception that paper airplanes are 'childs play' and are very easy to make (try folding one by memory, without a guide, and you'll likely be very disappointed in the results) and also that the PowerUp is simply a 'toy' and shouldn't require any work. If you are willing to practice the engineering behind making a great paper airplane, and behind correcting flight problems (all of which is spelled out in the included instructions) it makes for an awesome toy, and an awesome learning and teaching experience for kids.
I did have a slight misfortune during this initial flight outing.... the plane hit a metal playground bar, knocking off the propeller, which we couldn't find (the instructions clearly state to only fly it in an open field). Fortunately a backup propeller was included. Unfortunately I put it on backwards, and when I tried to remove the propeller, the engine ripped out with it, and I was left with wires hanging out of a broken plane. This was my fault, but frustrating. Be VERY careful should you ever intentionally try to remove the propeller. I ordered a second PowerUp 2.0 today and look forward to getting back to flying!
I could not get it to fly farther than I could throw it, even after 2 days of tinkering.
I tried everything written in the instructions to improve it's flight but to no avail
I even tried different paper types.
I gave it two stars because the build quality is good and it was at a decent price point, but just didn't seem to work.
