The OAE F198-1 Lightning is a fast, long range multirole paper airplane. The Lightning was designed by OrigamiAirEnterprises as a replacement for the OAE F65-1 Hammerhead. Additionally, the F198-1 proved itself a capable fighter-bomber paper airplane too, with its ability to carry two fuselage-mounted low drag multipurpose pods.


Construction details of the Lightning can be found here.


The Lightning is fairly mainstream in launch techique. Hold the airplane by its fuselage and give it a swift throw for the furthest, fastest flights. Additional surfaces applicable include flaps, slats, spoilers, spoilerons, elevators, ailerons, elevons, and air brakes.
