Yeah, but how did they get the chute to deploy without the nose cone popping off?

Sweet -- a commercial that actually uses model rocketry in a positive, though humorous way. Usually when model rockets are used in commercials it's more like a Wile E. Coyote cartoon, with the model wreaking havoc and destruction.

Rear-ejection, with a cord tied to the top of the nosecone...? :-)

The rocket was so well constructed, so well balanced, the ejection charge was so perfect.....that the nosecone popped off, and the shockcord snapped it right back into place!
