A classical 2-stage sport rocket standing 22 inches tall, the Sterling Silver is truly a "must-have"! Single stage or 2-stage, this rocket soars! Load it up on a C6-0/C6-7 engine combo and you better have your binoculars handy as the estimated altitude is a whopping 2,600 feet!
The Sterling Silver launches on standard engines and recovery is streamer for the rocket and tumble for the booster. Prepare for re-launch with a new Estes engine, wadding, a starter and starter plug.
