Introducing the Sliver - 400!
With a first place win in the 2000 NATs, a second and third place
finish in the 2001 NATS, and current fast time record holder at
75 seconds-you know this is one hot airplane! Four time AMA NATs
winner George Parks III says: "The Sliver is the best racer
out there and I am happy to endorse it!"! Designed by 2000
USA FAI F5D team member, the Sliver's low wing loading, long aspect
ratio and V-tail make for the tightest turning racer you have
Not Racing? As the largest 400 racer on the
market, the Sliver makes an exceptional sport plane. At 165 sq.
in., it will thermal like a glider, but it's low drag makes for
superior performance on lower power motors like the Astro Brushless
010, or 7.2V Speed 400. With a good build job, it can easily be
built under 12.5oz RTF with a Sp400 in it! This translates to
very low landing speeds and eager aerobatic ability with even
low lowest dollar powertrains. The Sliver has flight characteristics
that are like a .40 size pattern plane than similarly sized airframes.
The tracking and response to control input make for an airplane
that you drive around the course rather than follow along for
If you want something different and are tired of
flying racers that take 10 minutes to swap a pack out, are difficult
to see, and glide like a crowbar, then the Sliver 400 is for YOU!
