FlyDream Dream 1 Electric Paper Plane – Lightest RC Plane

by Oscar

I bought this electric paper plane from Hobbyking the other day just for fun. It’s a ready-to-fly kit, and seems to be a great gift for a young kid.

This is technically my first fixed wing plane :) FlyDream Dream 1 Product Page.

It comes with paper airplane driver, a ring controller, a replacement foam for the plane head, an USB charger and 4 pieces of plane folding paper that has different pictures.

The plane can be controlled by the Ring controller that you wear on your finger. It has a Somatosensory sensor built-in, so by moving your finger you are able to adjust the motor speed, turning left right and land. The range is about 50 meters however I have yet to confirm it.

The plane has a tiny rudder, just in front of the pusher motor. It is driven by a tiny magnetic actuator, which only give you 3 positions: left, centre and right. It doesn’t have much turning authority, so you need quite a big indoor space to fly this little plane, ideally somewhere as big as a basketball court.

Both the plane driver and Ring controller have a built-in battery, that can be charged through a computer USB port, within 20 mins.

It comes with 4 different colour / picture plane folding papers. Each paper has the folding instructions clearly printed on.

It isn’t difficult at all to put it together. The instructions for folding the paper airplane is very well explained. Assembly took me about 10 mins.

And here is the manual that came with the small RC plane, for my future reference.
