First flight

July 2012

The OAE XD234-1 was an experimental drone cruiser prototype designed by OrigamiAirEnterprises with the intent to supplant the OAE D170-1 Super Tomahawk. The XD234-1 was the first known drone paper airplane with a "tandem triple" configuration. This layout was chosen for its excellent pitch stability characteristics. The XD234-1 was flight tested thoroughly, but eventually passed over for the more advanced OAE D250-1 Starship.
