Only works on Santa Claus' phone Apparently none of the devices we have in the family are good enough for this app. Samsung S3? Nope. S4? Nope. Moto G? Nope. Maybe Santa Claus can enjoy this device and app.... magically. This is turning me off of funding kickstarter projects. Thanks a lot, PowerUp!
Galaxy S5 (IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE SYNCING, READ THIS) Fun to play with, has a bit of a learning curve. I can't wait to really get the hang of it! It was difficult to sync at first, but it it worked right away after holding it close to my phone.
Works, but still needs improvement. I have some issues with the app refusing to reconnect sometimes when the connection to the module is lost, necessitating an entire phone reboot. If I don't manually kill the app and disable Bluetooth when I'm done flying, my battery will be dead in a few hours without any further use. Also, I haven't heard any word about twin module support (on one airplane).
Wish it were simpler I got this as a gift from my wife and was quite interested in getting flying. After several tries, I've given up now and I feel horrible because I couldn't ever show my wife a positive result of her gift to me. The planes simply won't fly once the motor is attached and I don't have enough time in my day to keep trying to figure out why. Maybe it's good for kids or paper plane pros but can't recommend it for a novice.
Hope you have an iPhone. Connects to modules, but throttle/rudder doesn't work, Nexus 5X. Previously-known-working Nexus 5, updated to Android 6.0, now non-functional. Won't connect at all. Reaching out to support -- hopefully I'll get a useful response. Update: support not helpful.
A fun app to complement the hardware. But awful Android support. Was able to fly once on a previous version of the app on a Galaxy S3. Now on Galaxy S5, app cannot connect to the motor. My investment is currently unusable. I also don't understand why the app is unavailable for android tablets. They include bluetooth and a gyroscope to my knowledge so I'm not sure what the problem is there.
New in v2.2.1: This minor update fixes some issues with rudder control. This update is highly recommended for all users who have v2.2.
New in v2.2: This update is all about our new, highly improved FlightAssist™ algorithm! You now have a beginner-friendly mode, and an advanced mode (default) with more control. Expert pilots can also turn it off completely.
Several bugs have also been fixed for better stability and compatibility of Bluetooth connection.
This app will guide you step by step to help you make the perfect paper airplane
