Ever wondered how to make paper airplanes that just keep flying?  Well now you can  (for 10 minutes at least) with the amazing new gadget called the Power Up 3.0 . The PowerUp 3.0 is the worlds first conversion kit to transform paper airplanes into rc planes capable of flying to a range of 55 meters (180 feet) while being controlled via bluetooth technology with your smartphone. If you are wondering how to make paper airplanes that will work with PowerUp 3.0, you can either download proven PDF templates or invent your own just like a modern day Da-Vinci. I love cool tech gadgets, but I especially love cool tech gadgets that actually work and do cool things.

Insider tip: Make sure your airplane flies straight with the power module attached before charging the motor. Making model aircraft is not difficult - print paper drawings model aircraft, cute and glue them model aircraft from paper.
The company Seversky worked many Russian and Georgian immigrants, including a leading designer AM Kartveli. I was digging up my photo archives and stumbled upon pictures of some  RC micro airplane models that I built long time ago as a hobby.
The heart of the receiver is a small PIC microchip 10F200 containing a program written by Koichi Tanaka that processes the commands from infrared transmitter. Soon I will be posting more pictures and information about the RC projects that I’ve done, there’s lots of inspiration coming so please subscribe to this blog! I am a beginner in RC Airplanes, but have quite some knowledge about Electronics and was looking for a way to build the circuit instead of buying them at expensive prices.
Is it possible to use normal resistors and capacitors components instead of SMD components? If it bursts on the airplabe while its flying is fine, coz the airplane will be flying away from you.. But imagine it bursting in ur hand while controlling the Airplane through the transmitter!! It would never burst in your hand unless you do a short circuit or plug it in to a wrong charger. Also the batteries don’t just suddenly explode, they swell first and that takes a long time, you would notice that something is wrong. If its not much to ask, could you please upload an image of the PCB (the soldering side) of the Transmitter?
Been looking up on this and i’m trying to figure some things out before I actually start buying the stuff. I’d like to have a list and try and get everything I need at once rather than paying shipping for a few things at a time.
I don’t see the parts for the TX on the list you sent in the PDF… You need a MOSFET to drive the IR array, or do you want to use your existing remotes?
I’d be into 3 or 4 of your sharp ir sensors 1 or 2 each of your rx pcb small and very small.
My dad knows electronics but is 68 with bad eyes and he never got into programming micro controllers.
For the Spitfire I used very thin foam that was only available from one source – it is called Durobatics.
PS I have one more spitfire with all the parts already in it – it just needs to be painted. It is kind of tempting buying your plane but I’m into building skill trying to build myself.


I really would like to get going on the TX and the RX from the already proged chips and I’ll tinker with the pic programming later after I get the programmer which could be 15-20 days. Sorry, but it seems that the PIC codes for the transmitter can’t be downloaded from this page you mentioned anymore. Please look in the latest comments, I have posted the links to the schematics and code there, will update the post soon too. Albert Vanderlyn: The SUPER EASY is GREAT for flying practice without the stress of worrying about crashing an expensive plane .
I admit I was sceptical at first, but with persistence and determination, this turned out to be a ton of fun. After watching the video, he would ask each morning, “Can we fly the red plane today, Dad?” Finally the perfect Saturday morning arrived: it was warm outside with a very slight breeze, and the local park was empty. We practised throwing the plane several times without the motor (as recommended), made slight adjustments as needed, then powered it up.
To save weight, the power module is made from lightweight carbon fiber and uses a capacitor, not batteries, to power the micro electric motor. This is my first ever scratch build so, to ensure my eventual failure, I decided to eschew plans altogether and just sort of make it up as I go along. With a little modification and a whole bunch of scaling, these form the basis for my 26″ wingspan model. I will start posting pictures of my micro airplanes along with details about them, maybe this will inspire you to build some models like this or at least give you an impression of what a person could build at their home these days.
I used a case from electric shaver to fit my transmitter circuit board (PCB) and the glued the high-power infrared LED array on the front (of course it is connected by wires as well). I think you can try using 6 NiCd rechargeables, I haven’t tried that but the voltage should be the same.
I don’t currently have a video in flight but I think soon I will shoot one, it just flies so beautifully!!!
I used PicKit 2 programmer from the manufacturer of PIC chips, but I’d love to hear if this cheap programmer will work ok for you! The tx board I’d just use a general board to start like they have on indoor airplane site to start and graduate to building more compact for a ps2 game controller or wii nunchuck.
When I had it happen it was polarity (+ , -) on the battery that accidentally got reversed or a bit of solder where it shouldn’t be (hence short circuiting).
If you have any questions during the build , let me know ( on the RC Groups thread ) - I'll be glad to help ! I trim the elevators so the plane climbs slightly with full throttle .The rudder is VERY responsive ( being underneath the wings it induces yaw and roll in the same direction ) , so over steering will probably be the greatest challenge for beginning flyers . I had made sure I watched the tutorial videos beforehand and had it all charged up (took only 15-20 minutes).
I wasn’t expecting perfection from the first flight (nor should you!), so I wasn’t at all disappointed when it didn’t go far the first time.
I don’t mean to be over dramatic, but it really combined my boyhood love of paper airplanes with my boy’s love of planes and smartphones into an awesome experience to be enjoyed over and over again. Make a paper airplane that flies well, clip on the Power Up Power Kit and your creation can fly for 30 seconds or more after a 20 second charge with the included charger. If you have a parts package to sell I might be interested in buying it from you If you have the parts already. I don’t want to end up going to put stuff together and be missing 1 thing I have to order and wait for. Just remind them to make SMALL movements on the sticks , so the plane makes BIG turns with as little banking as possible .


The throttle, tilt of the phone, the angle of the wings, and the small flaps on the plane (pardon my ignorance of aeronautical terms!) all needed to be just right. I was thinking of trying to reuse what I can but would like to build one from stock first and adapt and learn from there. The process of making it is pretty complicated and nobody wants to go through this hassle to make it – maybe there are other sources for it but I am not aware of them. My Rx was the the one which has 2 transistor (IRLML2502 and TCM809-Same as Koichi) instead of one transistor like in your design.
It was actually incredibly fulfilling launching and adjusting, launching and adjusting, launching and adjusting some more until we finally got that first long flight.
And is it possible to use a more Ampere Rated Li-po Battery if the weight is exactly as the 10mah Li-po battery??
The existing IR controllers and game controllers I have I find at the .59 cent a lb thrift store. One reason I’m interested in a few pre-programmed PICs even though I already have some. I find I am really enjoying building foamy planes and my brother just gave me a beginners plane.
That looks pretty close to one of my attempts, but mine wasn't stable enough to qualify as a trainer. As I am not a perfectionist by nature, I was very careful to fold exactly where the lines indicated.
According to the website given they are using Li-po(i dont wana buy them, they scare me and they are expensive..for the Rx i already got one), or can we use those normal 6 NiCd Rechargeable Battery that give good miliampere rating??
I tried adding dihelrad (and some elevated strips on the leading edge) but it seemed to make it respond strangely.
We finished creating the beginner plane (called the Invader, which I would recommend starting with) and attached the PowerUp 3.0.
I decided to add a very small piece of tape to the back end just to keep it connected well to the plane (which I would recommend doing).
I had also previously downloaded the app on my Samsung S4 and synced it with the PowerUp (which was a synch).
We experimented with different planes, different launch points, different angles with or against the wind, different launch speeds…and just had a blast! A huge amount of rudder offset fixed it enough for 5-10 seconds of hands off at a time, which was fine. In 4 days from now I'm going to run a workshop to build and fly a foamboard plane, and I'm not happy with the models I've tried so far. Were you able to trim it for hands off to your liking ?Joe Weisman: Just a short report - I ran my workshop today, group building an rc airplane from scratch in 60 minutes, ending with some flying. I even managed to set it up well enough to let the builders fiddle with the right stick a little. I haven't had time to prepare properly, and I just went with your SE design even though I've never built it before.
