The PowerUp module is made of a highly durable carbon fiber composite, so it will not break with normal use. PowerUp 3.0 is can sustain crashes, but there are ways to ensure your module avoids damage. We recommend always flying on soft surfaces like grass. Flying and crashing the PowerUp 3.0 on hard surfaces like tarmac may eventually damage the unit. Applying a thin tape on the rear of the module to secure it in the V-groove will help protect the module from damage over time. And if your paper airplane is deformed, you can always fold a new design easily.
The PowerUp is not waterproof… but neither are paper planes!
