Some kind of soft foam chamber maybe, either with a slit or some sort of plug that would keep the egg from falling out? This event would be way more fun if the egg had to be ejected with a little parachute ... Just imagine the drama of an egg speeding towards the ground, it's chute trying desperately to open in time! :o

That would be awesome but with the current rules it will be a bit more difficult for the egg not to break :shock: :o

In the nose cone. That is how I am doing it.

I would think that it would be better to put the egg in the point where there is a center of gravity, but I have no ideas on how to put the egg in the rocket.

I have a question. Are you allowed to modify the rocket during the competition?
