After two weeks of using the SmartPlane, I’ve decided that I would like to give this product 4/5 stars. It is a well-designed RC toy that does exactly what it is supposed to. It’s fun to play with and it has been able to survive all the crashes it’s been through. However, there is still room for improvement.

My friends and I were all slightly disappointed when we unboxed the SmartPlane. Just as one reviewer said, it “doesn't look much for the money”. This led us to have very low expectations for the SmartPlane’s maiden flight. Maybe it was because of these low expectations that we were so blown away by the plane’s flight performance. We all cheered as the plane took to the skies with remarkable ease and all our criticisms just faded away.

So what’s so great about this plane? The set-up procedure is easy, the controls are intuitive and the plane doesn’t break even after repeated head-on collisions with the ground. But the main reason why we all loved the SmartPlane is because of the “holy s***, we’re actually flying” -feeling it gave us. It’s similar to the feeling you get when you lift off in a real airplane, except this time you are actually controlling it. Just to experience this rush is reason enough for me to recommend the SmartPlane to any RC enthusiast.

And how could this plane have been better? In three words: better haptic properties. I can’t complain about the ‘build quality’ of the plane because it flies like it’s supposed to and survives all the crashes. Yet it doesn’t -feel- like the expensive gadget that it is. Although these are just nitpicks, especially annoying are the tiny on/off switch and the flimsy micro-USB port.

To sum up: this is a fun and functional product, which looks much better in the air, than it does in your hand.

I’ve been flying the SmartPlane for over a week now and I must say that I’m very happy with this gadget. Let me share the experiences that I’ve made with it so far.

The SmartPlane is the first smartphone-controlled toy I’ve tried and as such, it provides a remarkably refreshing flying experience. It’s very fluid in comparison to a RC-helicopter. It almost feels like you’re playing a video game.

The SmartPlane is tough, but not indestructible. The plane’s frame is made from plastic foam which is extremely light and astoundingly durable. You can bend and twist it whichever way you like but it won’t break or deform unless you really try hard (… I guess!) However I can see how you could still ‘break’ the plane by loosening up the contacts, if you keep crashing it repeatedly. Basically, you’ve got to use your common sense and try to be gentle with the SmartPlane, just like with any other RC-gadget out there.

For this reason I’d recommend learning to fly it in a park, where you could get a soft landing on the grass. However, make sure to do this on a windless day, because unexpected gusts of wind can easily knock you out of the sky. Remember, this plane weighs next to nothing! Don’t fly the plane too high either, because the wind gets stronger at higher altitudes.

Once you’re comfortable piloting the plane, try ‘landing’ it by making the plane glide towards you and then snatching it out of the air with your free hand. It feels awesome to do this trick and it makes for a soft landing.

The REAL fun, however, is to fly this plane in indoor environments, which aren’t strictly speaking meant for playing ;). My favourite spot so far has been the multi-story parking lot of a nearby mall. It’s mostly empty and the ceiling is held up by numerous round pillars.

I bought this for my son for Christmas. Didn't buy it via amazon but from a shop. Anyway, I was somehow misled by the previous reviews written on amazon when taking the decision so I have decided to write a review and help others to avoid such a mistake.

The Smartplane Smartphone Controlled Airplane is anything but smart. The plane is built in out of cheap (and light materials) such that it will be able to fly even it has a tiny propeller. Well, the materials are cheap and light alright, just that it still doesnt fly by itself. You need to help it out by giving it a push. That's the first drawback.

Second drawback is that even it is claimed that the plane can work indoors it actually doesn't. You have to push it hard and you need a house as big as a football pitch so you will be able to control the plane and do some maneuvers. The plane is supposed to be controlled by the smartphone gyro, which indeed would sound smart. Just that again, it is stupidly implemented and it just doesn't work.

Third... At the first successful flight (which happened outdoor) the plane landed and broke in half. The polystirene is so thin that the tail broke...

Forth... Trying to fix the plane got it out of balance. Even I used just a minimum amount of duct tape but, as the plane is so light, it was enough to unbalance it. Now, as much as one tries to get it to fly, it just turns a hard right and falls...

Sorry for the long post. In short, if you want to make your kid unhappy and spend 65 euros for that, buy this plane.

If you want a nice funny toy, then look somewhere else.
