For Sale
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/Cradio, 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.

Details

Scale: 1/141
Length: 43 in (1090mm)
Beam: 6 in (156mm)
Motor Size: 390-size x 2
Drive System: Dual direct drive system

Radio: Futaba 3PRKA (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum), 2.4GHZ-FHSS, 3 Channel for use with surface models
Speed Control: ProBoat 50A waterproof with reverse
Hull Material: Fiberglass
Trim Scheme Colors: Gray
Battery: 7.28.4V 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

Please contact the seller, Don, directly: donciucci@sbcglobal.net

Thanks,

Rob Wood

This is a fantastic model: Looks great, runs great, and comes with a new radio and battery. I spent a couple of hours with this ship this past weekend, watching it run and photographing it. If I have any criticism at all of this model, it's that it has so many fine details that the operator has to be very careful when handling it. Otherwise, you can see for yourself what an excellent model it is.

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!

I have to say at the time they were discontinued they were going for 250-350, but they arnt easy to find now...... there is a reason the boat is still for sale in your hobby shop. As for this boat, it has been on my list of boats to buy, looks nice. Especially since its completely rtr.
