Notes:
The prototype DA-2 nosegear used a spring instead of rubber doughnuts.
The DA-4 was intended as the production version of the DA-2, but was sold unfinished. Brent Hughes finished it as DA-2C N26146. This should not be confused with the D2C "Bandit" mods.
DA-2A scratchbuilding plans are available and describe both DA-2A and DA-2B versions. DA-5 plans are also available.
DA-1 through DA-5 used the Clark Y airfoil. DA-6 and later use the USA 35B airfoil modified with a flat bottom.
The book "Where Is My Dream Plane?" describes the DA-10 specifications as a design study.
