The mechanics of the Bottle Rocket event are going to be a lot different from those of Egg-o-naut.

But for starters you're gonna wanna link the nose cone to the rocket body by a string and attach the parachute to the connecting string.

So Bottle Rocket is basically Egg-o-naut without the egg? I'm going to try this over the summer...should be fun.

Should be, unless they're gonna be misleading with the names. Should be egg o naut except the focus is to keep everything together and there is no egg. I would also like to point out in past years they have prohibited parachutes, so you may find it gratifying to attempt a backslider (look it up)

Ahh baksliders...if by some miraculous chance bottle rockets is a c event next year, id be ecstatic...the egg-o-naut crew this year for our team was extremely lazy and i pretty much got involved in order to keep them busy...i really like the event and after seeing the team have trouble with parachutes (the highest time they got was 12 seconds, without bonuses, though they did get all the bonuses, i just dont remember how much it added up to) i started making backsliders after state...i wish i had done egg-o-naut, i actually clocked one of my flights at 17.6 seconds! Ya, its not exceptional, but backsliders are just a lot more consistent to me, and pretty low maintenance...however, in about 30 launches, the egg broke once. My lowest time was 10.1 seconds (it was really windy, the moment it launched, it just got blown to the side and it basically did a nose-dive, and the average was 16.25, launching mostly on good launch days
