With the 1:25 scale model of the PCF Mark I, Pro Boat honors the heroes who sailed the Patrol Craft Fast (PCF) on patrol during the Vietnam War. Veterans, their families and history buffs will all appreciate the quality of workmanship and precision of detail. On the water, the Pro Boat design provides excellent performance that all RC boat enthusiasts can admire! The actual PCF Boats – also known as Swift Boats – were all-aluminum, 50-foot craft developed at the request of the US Navy specifically to combat insurgent forces. Initially used to patrol coastal areas, PCF missions later expanded to inland waterways transporting Vietnamese forces, blocking enemy weapons supplies, and transporting SEAL teams for counterinsurgency operations.







The model is powered by two 390 series DC motors with aluminum coolers and a 40A controller/RX 2-in-1. Included in the set is the Spektrum SLT3 transmitter, which provides reliable control of the on-board electronics - and allows you to control the boat's LED lights directly with the transmitter. The PCF Mark I is ready to add an optional rotating turret (requires SMPSX108 Micro servo and Y-cable harness, connected to control channel).
