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.
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.
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).
Bad The app works. The plane, however does not the kit cost way too much money for a tiny propeller. Speaking of the propeller, it cant even hold up its own weight. Good app. Bad prouduct.
Anyone who could possibly be a real person says this app sucks! Take heed- the 'real' commenters are all reporting the same thing. Great if you have an iPhone and doesn't work on tablets. That and no updates, tech support, or communication from the manufacturer. What ever. It's Kickstarter....shame on us right?
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.
