If someone goes through the rigmarole of designing a protection sabot that could realistically allow the egg to survive the launch and achieve a decent range only to fake the whole thing with a hidden egg to win a competition with the sole prize being boasting rights, let them have it.

Speaking of distance shots *cough* wehaventforgottentheminiboy*cough*
We actually tried to fix the ATV last time we were up there but it's not even getting power from the battery and we can't work out why. There's talk of getting someone in to fix it but the guy wants $300 just to look at it and figure out what's wrong with it. I can of course still launch the MiniBoy, but without the ATV there'll be no recovery chance; which goes against LeMaudit's wishes.
