Robin DR 315X F-ZWRS was built as a development prototype for the DR 400 series. It was sold to the French Air Force for ‘evaluation’ purposes. It was originally fitted with a single ejection seat while the canopy was secured by explosive bolts.

It was sold as scrap to Robin Voice who rebuilt it to civilian standard and later registered G-DRSV.

From the fabric-covered wooden DR.300 series with fixed tricycle landing gear the company evolved the DR.400.
