    I am looking for a set of Davis DA-2A/B plans. I would prefer the book only at this time but will consider the book and plans if you have them.

    There is a Yahoo group for the Davis DA-2. You can download the plans for free there.

    True but the scale on the printouts will not be accurate. It appears that the plans online do not have the dimensions for the 2B, only 2A and are missing about 4 pages.

    I just had a look, everything appears to be for sale, not for free?

    I would like to look at the wings plans if any body can assist?

    They used to be in the files section. Maybe they took them down.

    Yahoo got rid of all of their file storage in October so groups are on their last legs.

    Not anymore. Yahoo! is shutting down all groups. The group may have moved to other hosting, but it won't be on Yahoo! anymore.

    Looks like someone may have taken the rights to the Davis, and is now selling anything to do with them.

    Darn Capitalists, I must speak to my Comrades about this.

    Did they wake up and think: We'll build a plane in a pointless manner, and make it as hard as possible for ourselves.

    The frame is a nightmare, and what's the point of black aluminium if you're going to use rivets everywhere, and indeed, why a frame at all if black aluminium.

    I so don't get it.
