We can't think of many other ways that you can send an egg sailing 400 feet into the air and return it safely to Earth (and in time for breakfast!) The specially designed nose capsule comes unpadded - requiring you to experiment with various methods of protecting Mr. Egg. The Courier model rocket has a traditional balsa fin design and features its own dual parachute recovery system.
