Pro Boat Arleigh Burke
This is a PRO-BOAT 1:144 Arleigh Burke destroyer, ready for the lake (no assembly required). This model was offered as part of their scale model military program, and its original cost was $599 (without an R/C radio, NIMH battery and/or charger). ASKING PRICE: $499 or Best Offer, ready to run, with radio and batteries. Note: All photos on this page were shot by Rob Wood at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, on November 25th, 2012.
The owner purchased the model less than 1 month ago from a local hobby shop in San Francisco, and has run it less than one hour. Why? Because he discovered that he's just not into military boats. This boat is in like-new condition, still in in its original box.
Length: 43 in (1090mm)
Beam: 6 in (156mm)
Motor Size: 390-size x 2
Drive System: Dual direct drive system
Weight: 5 lb + 5 lb ballast weight (not included)
Radio: Futaba 3PRKA (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum), 2.4GHZ-FHSS, 3 Channel for use with surface models

Hull Material: Fiberglass
Trim Scheme Colors: Gray
Battery: 7.2–8.4V sub-C 3000mAh, NIMH flat pack (new), with charger
Seller prefers that the buyer pick up the model in San Francisco, but is willing to discuss buyer-paid shipping costs

As for cost: You can't buy one of these new, as Pro Boat isn't selling them anymore, and yet this one has less than 1 hour's running time, so from my point of view, it's new, and literally ready to run. I'd buy it myself if I had a single shelf in my house that doesn't already have a ship on it!
