What makes it so amazing?

Intuitive control

Forget big bulky remote controls. You can now fly with a flick of your hand. Just use your phone to control the plane. Simply slide your thumb on the app, for the SmartPlane to go up and down or just tilt the phone to turn. Better control equals more fun!


The SmartPlane is a unique flying gadget! It understands your commands, analyses the situation and automatically adjusts accordingly to assist your flying. Simply open the SmartPlane app on your phone, connect the plane and you are ready. Using your phone to fly a plane has never been so easy!

New-age tech

The SmartPlane works with the latest BluetoothSmart wireless technology to enable a long flight time over a longer range. We ensure the pairing between the plane and the phone is as smooth as possible. Simply hold the phone close to the plane and it is ready for take-off!

Even more features

Hold on! We've got more.

Bluetooth icon

Bluetooth Technology

A "smart" plane needs smart technology and that is why we went one step ahead and integrated the latest BluetoothSmart standard, with long range (up to 60 m / 200 feet), and extremely low power consumption. No clumsy dongles needed!

Touch-&-Go icon


With Touch & Go there is no pairing, no waiting! Simply open the SmartPlane app, touch the plane with your phone, and you are connected within seconds. Flying with friends? It’s very easy to choose which plane you want to connect to.

Slow flight icon

Slow flying

The result of 2 years of aerodynamic optimisation: the SmartPlane flies sloooowly, and yes that's an advantage! You no longer need laser-sharp reflexes and a football field sized area to enjoy flying. You are still very much able to do fast maneuvers - use the wind and throttle lever to your advantage.

Proportional rudder icon

Super precise rudder

We built-in a 256-level proportional rudder with logarithmic correction – the most advanced in its class – so your hand movements get translated to very natural turn angles. The FlightAssist™ feature makes full use of this extended range to give you a stable flight without compromising maneuverability.

Powerful battery icon

Powerful battery

The SmartPlane is powered by a state-of-the-art Lithium-Polymer battery which weighs just 1 gram. You can enjoy flying your plane up to 15 min on a single charge (tip: soar and glide!), and recharge in 15 min using a standard micro USB cable (included in packaging). Even at full throttle, the battery lasts at least 7 minutes.

Durable material icon

Durable construction

Flying the SmartPlane is pure fun, so crashing it is inevitable. It is built with durable foam material which retains its shape even after being bent. The engine and propeller are offset inside the plane's nose, so any head-on collisions will not cause severe damage. We've included an extra prop, just in case!

Infinite possibilities, expandable and always up-to-date.

The smartphone advantage

Although the SmartPlane has a little microprocessor of its own, the real brain behind it lies in the smartphone app. This lets us continuously improve the plane by adding more features to the app. For example, the FlightAssist™ feature, which dramatically improves the flying experience, was added as an app update during development. The possibilities are endless.

TobyRich SmartPlane App

Wireless updates

We take app updates one step further. Using state-of-the-art technology, we can wirelessly push updated firmware to the plane even after it's out of the factory. This means your SmartPlane is always up-to-date with the latest bug fixes and feature enhancements. All you need to do is install the latest app update. The next time you connect to your plane, it will be automatically updated.
