Erekat explains why: “This White House needs giant statesmen, not real estate agents.” I told him ‘look: if you do this [move the U.S. Embassy to […]

Everybody’s flown a paper airplane. But what if you could fly on a paper airplane? Until we invent shrink-ray technology, the PowerUp X FPV Video Paper Airplane Kit will have to do – but it’s as fun as that sounds and more. The original version of this creative toy added drone tech to the old, […]
