Get ready to test the goodness of your eyesight with this two-stage model that can reach incredible heights.
The Sterling Silver is a classic two-stage model of minimum diameter, the same as its motors. This greatly reduces aerodynamic drag and allows it to fly at very high altitudes. If you are using the C6-0/C6-7 pair of motors, make sure you have binoculars handy as the Sterling Silver will be very difficult to see with the naked eye!
Of course you can also fly it in single-stage version and with less powerful motors, thanks to its lightness.
The construction is classic, in high quality cardboard tubes and punched balsa stabilizers. The recovery is by a streamer.
