POWERUP FPV lets you experience flight as if you were sitting in the cockpit of your very own paper airplane. Wearing your smartphone with a head-mounted display (VR viewer sold separately), you see what your airplane sees, controlling your paper airplane with intuitive movements of your head.
The POWERUP FPV smartphone app enables you to communicate with the FPV Module and control your airplane with the Gamepad mode, or the VR mode.
The app connects to the plane via Wi-Fi; the airplane is actually a flying hot-spot!
Our airplane is unique in the way it is controlled. We do not have any moving control surfaces, such as ailerons or elevators, the two direct drive propellers enable control in all axis of the airplane - yaw, pitch and roll.
- Differential thrust between the propellers allows for turning left or right.
- Increase thrust in both propellers causes the airplane to ascend, reducing the thrust will cause the airplane to descend.
The onboard Autopilot ensures commands are executed perfectly for easy flying.
With two virtual "joysticks"; the left joystick controls the throttle, and the right controls the roll. You can maneuver the plane as an RC plane, or FPV style by looking at the screen.
For a more immersive FPV experience, you can install the phone inside the VR viewer, and command the airplane by your head movements. Just command the on-screen Control Box to move wherever you want the airplane to go, and it will follow in that direction; it is very intuitive!
