Paper airplanes are awesome. End of story. But, sometimes, a little more oomph would be a welcomed plus. We actually tried putting an Estes rocket motor on one once, but that is a whole other story.
For a better way to get some propulsion, spend $20 and get the carbon fiber battery pack and propeller that will extend your flight up to 90 seconds. That’s a lot of power out of a paper airplane!
From the site: “First, make your airplane. Oooo, nice one. Then, you just slip your Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit propeller-stalk thing onto your paper airplane. It clips to the front, with the prop sticking out the back. Hold the battery pack up to the front and enjoy the sound of the propeller motor winding up. After 20 seconds (and don’t do more, or you’ll blow out the capacitor), you’re fully charged and ready for about a minute and a half of awesome, propeller-driven flight time. Get yerself an Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit, and you will be the ruler of the air! ”
Included in the kit:
- Add a rechargeable, motor-driven propeller to your paper airplane.
- Carbon fiber body – super durable and light weight.
- Charge Time: 20 seconds.
- Flight Time: approx. 90 seconds per charge.
- Batteries: 3 AA (not included).
- Dimensions: approx. 7.25″ long.
