It was known as the Howard DGA-6 at the factory, but to everyone else, it was simply the Mr. Mulligan. In the mid-'30s, it enjoyed two noteworthy descriptions. First, it was the only plane ever designed solely to win the coveted Bendix Trophy — and second, it was the only plane to win the Bendix Trophy and the Thompson Trophy in the same year. Now, ElectriFly has recreated the all-time racing great in detail as an all-electric replica and impressive, 52" span sport scale flyer!
Captures the iconic original in realistic detail with a replica radial, working flaps, a "hidden" battery hatch and painted fiberglass parts.
Sized for transportation ease — and easy handling in a breeze.
A prebuilt balsa airframe, painted fiberglass parts and factory-applied MonoKote® film contribute to fast assembly and superb good looks.
Perfect for intermediate pilots with a taste for scale looks and electric ease
Hidden screws inside the cowl ensure firm attachment and unblemished scale looks. Molded-in cowl blisters — and a replica "stand-in" for the original's Pratt & Whitney Wasp radial — contribute to authentic detail and outstanding good looks.
Its combination of internal bracing and external "smoothing" made the Mr. Mulligan a pioneer in modern aerodynamic design. Painted fiberglass parts — including the wheel pants, landing gear, struts, fairings and cowl — help recreate the clean, simple silhouette in minimum time.
Working flaps means short runways and "hot" approaches can be turned into easy takeoffs and slow, stable approaches. Flaps can be installed fixed or functional, depending on your preference.
Like the wings, the elevators are pre-hinged for faster, easier assembly. A steerable tailwheel adds ground handling to match in-air control.
The cockpit windshield doubles as a "hidden" battery hatch for convenience. Magnets on the fuselage and hatch hold tight in flight, but release cleanly for fast, easy pack changes.
