Bad start, but... Oct. 12 2011

We were really excited by the Powerup, but the propeller is EXTREMELY fragile; it broke the first time we used it.

UPDATE: They got in touch with me on Facebook and said they'll send a replacement prop; apparently they've re-engineered it to be stronger. Very good customer service. I'll update again when it gets here; hopefully second time is a charm, because this is a very cool toy!

UPDATE: Replacement props received; they definitely seem stronger.

Highly Recommended - Very Cool...and FUN! June 9 2012

My eldest son gave me a PowerUp for my birthday recently (he's always surprising me with the most unusual gifts!). Both of us love "things that fly", so he knew I would love this gadget.

As soon as the birthday celebration was over with, I unpacked the box, folded the plane (following the easy instructions included) and put the batteries in the charger. NOTE: minor annoyance... I wish the battery compartment didn't require the Philips screws - would be better if the cover would just slide or snap on/off for easier/quicker access. I slid the propeller clip assembly onto the nose and made a couple test flights (no power) to observe whether the plane needed trimming (adjustment of the elevons and rudder). I did bend the elevons up a little and put a slight bend to the rudder slightly to the left.

Satisfied the plane was now "tracking" alright, I charged it for the maximum recommended 20 seconds, then gave it a throw (this was in a large grassy area - do NOT fly this plane over hard surfaces - that could easily break the propeller upon landing or crashing).

My first powered flight was a total DUD! Tried again...another poor flight..the plane would go for a short distance, stall, and drop to the ground. Thinking the trim was off, I played with the elevons and dihedral adjustment and tried again - nope, still had a dismal flight. Dissappointed, I was about to give up, but tried once more. Holy smoke, that thing flew beautifully and for a l-o-n-g time!! Success at last, and it has worked flawlessly ever since - it is an outstanding and impressive product!

Anyone who owns one of these may have already guessed what I was doing wrong for my first few initial flight failures. Yep...I had the charger UPSIDE DOWN which caused the propeller to go in REVERSE! Due to MY OWN PILOT ERROR, when I released the plane to fly, the propeller was pushing the plane backwards instead of forward. So, you newbies out there - read the directions more thoroughly than I did. They clearly state to have the notched side of the charger insert facing UP when inserting into the power module when charging the propeller assembly. It's as simple as that, and you should have many, many enjoyable flights!

A Super gift for my children and also for me (-: April 3 2011

When I first saw this product I couldn't believe that all I have to do is to fold my own paper plane and attach an engine to it and it will fly!!
How amazing and exciting product. My children loved it and we spent a few quality hours together enjoying the "Air-force 1" test flights.

Works as indicated Sept. 13 2011

This item works as advertised. Some fiddling with the paper plane you make is needed to make it large enough to handle the added weight though. The power plant runs much longer then I would have expected. Great fun for the buck.

Great idea, be gentle with it Dec 30 2011

Got this for my son for Christmas. Fun little toy. The first day he took it out he flew it too close to our road and it landed on the hard surface which broke it. I contacted the company and they responded immediately and sent us a new one. We will be careful to use only in places where it will only land on grassy areas. I can't say enough about the customer service (they were a 5 star). Very nice, prompt, and professional.
