Newest version of our popular and contest winning “Eggstravaganza” series of Egglofter Kits!

Our "Platinum Edition" Egglofter kits feature an aerodynamic & lightweight clear plastic egg cone, shock cords made of KEVLAR® and elastic & laser-cut G10 fins. The tapered silver shroud reduces drag while giving plenty of room for our "Over Easy" parachutes! These kits have been used extensively in NAR competition and have helped modelers bring home many trophies! May be flown in either Altitude or Duration events.

The egg cone has a section in the base that will fit some smaller altimeters and also comes with the option of using a sponge-like foam egg protector that conforms to the inside of the cone and to the egg. The egg protector gives superior protection against breaking the egg and also makes mating the two pieces of the egg cone much easier. We give you the option of getting the kit without the egg protector and using your own padding, but we highly recommend the use of the foam egg protector!

The parachute size included with each kit is a good all-around size for the model size, but you may want to use a larger or smaller size depending on flying conditions and the event being flown. You can see other sizes of "Over Easy" 'chutes available by clicking here.
