Physics and Eggs!

So, for physics we have to design and build an egg drop apparatus that will survive the fall from some bleachers and hit the target area without breaking. I was thinking of making these "propeller" type wings to increase lift and then slowing down the fall. Also, stabilizers on the side of a cylinder, which will hold the egg (inside cushioned with bubble wrap). Finally on the bottom, four sort of landing straws that jet out from the bottom to cushion the landing. We can only use paper, the 4 straws, and a limited amount of bubble wrap. Any suggestions???
