The OAE F251-1 Super Lightning is a fast, long range, versatile paper airplane. Designed by OrigamiAirEnterprises to replace its relative, the OAE F198-1 Lightning, the F251-1 is a variant with strengthened wing spars for tighter turning ability, higher load capability and better weight distribution.

An F198-1 can be converted into an F251-1 with a few simple alterations. The Super Lightning can accommodate two low drag multipurpose pods mounted on its fuselage.


Construction details of the Super Lightning can be found here.


The Super Lightning is a fast paper airplane that can easily fly over 45 feet. Launch procedures are fairly standard; hold the airplane by its fuselage and throw it with moderate speed. Additional applicable surfaces include slats, flaps, flaperons, elevators, ailerons, elevons, rudders, air brakes and an electronic warfare tail.
