Robin DR.300 / DR.315 Petite Prince / DR340 Major / DR360 Chevalier / DR380 Prince
After the first nosewheel Robin, the DR253, a whole range of derivatives was developed: The DR300 series, featuring the DR300-108, DR300-120, DR 300-140 DR 300-180, DR 315 Petite Prince, DR340 Major, DR360 Chevalier and DR380 Prince.
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.
