PowerUp FPV Equips Paper Planes with a Live Streaming Camera: Fold’s Eye View

 |  |  |  |  |  November 11, 2015


PowerUp Toys continues to modernize the paper airplane. Its latest effort, the FPV, practically packs enough tech for a consumer drone, including a camera, Wi-Fi video streaming and an autopilot mode.

The onboard camera only has a 640×480 resolution, but that’s still infinitely better than nothing. The FPV uses drone maker Parrot’s video streaming technology to send live video to a mobile device up to 300ft. away, but it can also save videos and photos to a microSD card.

Aside from the aforementioned autopilot mode, the module’s complementary app will also let you view the live feed in 3D, which is why the FPV will be bundled with a cardboard headset. When viewing the video feed in 3D, you’ll be able to steer the FPV-equipped paper plane by tilting your head.

PowerUp Toys says the FPV can propel a paper airplane up to 20mph, and its hot swappable battery lasts up to 10min. per charge.
