By the time you spend $164 on a gadget for a paper airplane, it’s not made of paper any more, it’s made of money.

Woah. Quite a markup over the older versions.

Yep, I bought version 1.0, basically just a capacitor and a tiny motor on a stick, for (I think) $15 or so. True, it was only a free-flight version, but for me that’s a helluva lot more fun than messing with my phone to barely control the plane.

That seems like a lot for a remote control paper airplane, especially when you can get small drones that include a camera for less.
