Eggscaliber

Description

This eggcellent kit includes a colorful set of self-stick decals that allow you to personalize your egg however you like. Two colorful parachutes (one 12 inch parachute and one 18 inch parachute) will ensure a slow and gentle landing of the egg holder and main rocket.

We also include an adapter so you can launch your rocket on Estes standard model rocket engines or remove the spacer and you can use our powerful Estes D and E model rocket engines to launch this rocket over 1,000 feet. The Eggscaliber is also great for science experiments! The Eggscaliber is an advanced skill level kit, which requires more skills in building and painting.
