The ARLEIGH BURKE was brought to my equipment by a customer and is now equipped with 2 Graupner SPEED 900 BB Torque 12 V motors and ball-bearing drive shafts.

For the supply I used a strong lead battery with 7 Ah, which now supplies a waterproof speed controller with 12 volt on-board voltage.
In a second step, the model was again equipped with additional technology and extensive lighting, including numerous deck lights and a replica flight deck lighting with self-colored LEDs.

Admittedly I am not a big fan of the "gray fleet", but I was impressed by the driving picture of the ARLEIGH BURKE.

We had great fun during the final test drive ...!
