See it in action!

When we showed them the SmartPlane, authorities from our very own Bremen airport were so fascinated, they made an exception and let us shoot a TV ad at the arrival terminal! Check out people's reaction to a flying SmartPlane.

Even more features

Not enough features? We've got more.

Bluetooth icon

Bluetooth Technology

A "smart" plane needs smart technology. Traditional Bluetooth 2.1 or WiFi was simply not enough – we went one step ahead and incorporated the latest BluetoothSmart standard, with long range (up to 60 m), and extremely low power consumption – so there's more available for your plane's engine. No clumsy dongles needed!

Touch-&-Go icon

Touch&Go

With Touch & Go there is no pairing, no waiting! Simply open the SmartPlane app, touch the plane with your phone, and you are connected within seconds. Flying with friends? It's easier than ever to choose which plane you want to connect to. Pssst: sneakily touch your friend's plane before they can, and surprise them!

Slow flight icon

Slow flying

The result of 2 years of aerodynamic optimisation: the SmartPlane flies sloooowly, and yes that's an advantage! You no longer need laser-sharp reflexes and a football field sized area to enjoy flying – your office hallway is enough. But that doesn't mean you can't do fast maneuvers - use the wind and throttle lever to your advantage.

Proportional rudder icon

Fully proportional rudder

What use is an intelligent plane if you can't control it precisely? We built-in a 256-level proportional rudder with logarithmic correction – the most advanced in its class – so your hand movements get translated to very natural turn angles. The FlightAssist™ feature makes full use of this extended range to give you a stable flight without compromising maneuverability.

Powerful battery icon

Powerful LiPo battery

The SmartPlane is powered by a state-of-the-art Lithium-Polymer battery which weighs just 1 gram. You can enjoy flying your plane up to 30 min on a single charge (hint: soar and glide!), and recharge in 15 min using a standard microUSB cable (included in packaging). Even at full throttle, the battery lasts at least 5 min and recharging takes under 20 min!

Durable material icon

Durable construction

Planes are built for flying, and crashing! So was the SmartPlane. It is built with durable EPP (expanded polypropelene) material which retains its shape even after being bent. The engine and propeller are offest inside the plane's nose, so any head-on collisions will not cause severe damage. We've included an extra prop, just in case!


Infinitely expandable. Always up-to-date.

The smartphone advantage

Although the SmartPlane has a little microprocessor of its own, the real brain behind it lies in the smartphone app. This lets us continuously improve the plane by adding more features to the app. For example, the FlightAssist™ feature, which dramatically improves the flying experience, was added as an app update during development. The possibilities are endless.

Wireless firmware update

We take app updates one step further. Using state-of-the-art technology, we can wirelessly push updated firmware to the plane even after it's out of the factory. This means your SmartPlane is always up-to-date with the latest bugfixes and feature enhancements. All you need to do is install the latest app update. The next time you connect to your plane, it will be automatically updated.
