Looking back on my childhood, there’s one important lesson I learned that I’ll carry with me the rest of my life: Paper airplanes will not fly when weighed down. My attempts to get them to carry any kind of payload, for fun or nefarious reasons, were always a complete failure. So it’s with a raised eyebrow and a bit of skepticism that I bring you this Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit.
It supposedly adds an electric motor driven propeller to a paper airplane that provides about 90 seconds of flight time on a 20 second charge. But as thin and light as it looks, I’m dubious that it’s not just going to bring your paper craft crashing to the ground once launched. If it works then its $19.99 price tag is certainly worth the investment, but just think of how much paper you can buy and planes you can fold with that much money.
