General Guidelines and Safety Precautions
It is important that you read and follow this
instruction manual, along with the radio
system manual before you run this exciting
boat. Failure to read and understand the
manual could result in personal injury,
property damage or permanent damage to
your boat. It is also important to run your
boat responsibly. With proper care and
maintenance, you will be able to proudly
enjoy your Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyer for
many years to come.
If at any time while operating your model
you sense any abnormal function, end your
operation immediately. Do not operate your
boat again until you are certain the problem
has been corrected. Always stay clear of
the propeller.
This is a sophisticated hobby Product and
not a toy. It must be operated with caution
and common sense and requires some basic
mechanical ability. Failure to operate this
Product in a safe and responsible manner
could result in injury or damage to the
Product or other property. This Product is
not intended for use by children without
direct adult supervision. The Product manual
contains instructions for safety, operation
and maintenance. It is essential to read and
follow all the instructions and warnings in the
manual, prior to assembly, setup or use, in
order to operate correctly and avoid damage
or injury.
When operating the boat, stay clear of
people, full-scale boats, stationary objects
and wildlife. It is preferable to operate the
Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyer in low wake,
low wind conditions and in areas free of
people, wildlife and objects.
Check all of the hardware, and the propeller
for damage and loose screws before and after
each run.

Unpacking Your Model
Your model must be removed carefully from
the packaging to avoid damage. Follow the
steps shown to remove your model.
Required Tools
Hobby knife or similar
Side cutter
 1. Use a knife to cut the tape that
secured the two center foam supports to
the inner box.
 2. Carefully lift the foam support toward
the front of the boat. Lift the support
straight up and out of the box.
 3. The rear support has a small piece of
foam that keeps the larger section secure.
Remove the small piece of foam.
4
 4. Carefully lift the rear foam support. Lift
the support straight up and out of the box.
 7. Carefully lift the main tower and its
packaging from the box.
 5. Use side cutters to trim the wire ties at
the rear of the hull. Lift the front of the
hull upward slightly, then lift the hull from
the box.
 8. Use side cutters to cut the three
ties that secure the main tower to the
packaging. Make sure to support the
tower while cutting the ties so it doesn't
fall and become damaged.
 6. Use a knife to cut the tape that secures
the packing foam for the main tower to
the box.
5
 9. Remove the ties from the main tower.
 12. Use side cutters to cut the ties
that secure the secondary tower and
accessories to the packaging. Make sure
to support the tower so it doesn't drop
and become damaged once the ties have
been cut.
 10. Use a knife to cut the tape that
secures the foam packaging for the
secondary tower to the box.
 13. Cut the remaining ties to release
the helicopter and cover from the

details that can be installed, they are not
necessary to operate you model.

it is recommended to bind the receiver
to the transmitter at this time. Follow
the instructions provided with your radio
system for this procedure.
 4. Place the ballast weight in the ballast

the ON position. Connect the battery to
the lead from the speed control.
