Review: POWERUP 2.0 Free Flight Electric Paper Airplane Kit

Powerup 2.0 Electric Paper Airplane

We received a POWERUP 2.0 Free Flight Electric Paper Airplane Kit for free to try out and review. Opinions are our own.

Several years ago I attend Toy Fair and saw the first iteration of the Electric Paper Airplane from Power Toys. It was fascinating then and has only gotten more so over time. It wasn’t until just recently that I received a review unit to try out. This innovative product turns and ordinary paper airplane into a flying powerhouse.

To test out the Power Up 2.0 I needed to make some paper airplanes. I learned that the best planes to use are about the length of the Power Up 2.0. Shorter planes did not work as well. I recently helped with a Captain MArvel campaign and did a DIY Captain Marvel themed paper glider. Unfortunately that one did not work well with the Power Up 2.0 because it was far too short. You need a good full sheet of paper sized plane, although you can use A4 paper. I had to look up what A4 paper was and learned that much of the rest of the world uses that as a standard sized sheet of paper instead of our Letter sized. Either way the Power Up Flight Deck has you covered with templates for both sizes.

We took the airplanes to the park to fly them and the one that I made from the Flight Deck template was the best flyer of the bunch. Take a look at the video below.

You can pick up your own Power Up Toys on the Power Up Toys Website or through our affiliate links to Amazon.com.

SunBriteTV – Veranda Series for a True Outdoor Television Experience!

This post was written in conjunction with Best Buy. I have received compensation for my post.

SunBrite Veranda Series Outdoor 4K UHD TVs with HDR

Some nights around here it is so hot inside and cooler outside that I’d love to be able to watch TV outside in comfort. My dream is to have a back porch that is screened in or partially covered so that we can use it in all sorts of weather. Screened to keep the bugs away and partially covered in case of rain. But open and airy enough to enjoy a breeze. Covered also to take advantage of a SunBriteTV Veranda. These are engineered to survive just about any climate in North America, resisting the harsh effects of rain, snow, dust, insects, and extreme temperatures. They are also designed for full-shade outdoor spaces, like covered patios and screened-in porches. That is what I want at our next house.

Be the Party House!

I want to be that party house that has the big game on outside so everyone can see and enjoy it but still enjoy playing outside and grilling and eating and just having a lot of fun in the nice weather. I also want to be able to have outdoor movie nights on that screened in deck. And I want those movies in 4K UHD! The Veranda comes standard with a direct-lit 4K UHD screen with HDR, which is up to 50% brighter than indoor TVs for improved viewing in brighter outdoor environments. It’s more durable, safer, and a better experience that using an indoor TV outdoors. I can’t imagine trying to use my indoor TV outside when there is all sorts of factors like rain, snow, dust and insects. With all the rain happening around here lately I wouldn’t be comfortable with any technology left outside unless it was specifically designed to be weatherproof like the SunBriteTV Veranda series.
