The PowerUp FPV Paper Airplane VR Drone Model Kit basically slaps a motor and a streaming camera onto a paper airplane. While this might sound silly at first, it’s actually a good idea for one simple reason, easy repairs after a crash.

This drone 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 (Google cardboard viewer included), you see what your plane sees, controlling your paper drone by tilting your head.

Cool, huh?

Well, it gets better. Let’s face it, one of the problems with expensive drones is the cost of making a mistake (i.e. crashing). With this drone, if you crash it, it’s very likely that all you’ll need to do to get back in the air is fold up another “aircraft body” from a spare sheet of paper. The motor and control body are made of tough carbon fiber so the drone would have to be run over by a car before it breaks.

This (mostly) DIY drone offers up to 10 minutes of flight-time on a single charge. It has a range of about 300 feet for video (and control via 2.4 GHz WiFi) and can go up to 20 MPH (32 kph)!

The camera isn’t exactly HD video but, it is really fun to see “from the cockpit” as you zip around. You can even turn the camera 360′ so you can get different angles or shots.

If you don’t like VR because you get motion sick, no problem. The drone can be controlled by your phone just as easily without the VR headset. I imagine bending over to puke would result in a spectacular crash but, it’s probably best to not try it if you’re prone to motion sickness.

Oh, and finally, there’s even an autopilot mode to assist in landings or flying in windy conditions.
