WINGSPAN 18 3/4 IN
By PAUL J. PALANEK
Our missile is not intended for the devastation of a potential enemy. To the contrary, its concept was to give the U/C fan pleasurable hours of building combined with flying enjoyment. Since it is designed for UIC it is' truly a "guided missile." We hit upon the idea whereby the fuselage should be built over a rod acting as a crutch. A broomstick is the most common' stick found in the home, so we chose one. .
That we have something different in the mounting of the Cub .14 is quite evident. The prop arc splits the fuselage and a small portion of each wing panel. We did this to keep the design down in bulk. However, we could have employed a duct fan or a blower system of propulsion but this would give the Rocket considerable bulk particularly in the fuselage. With the engine mounted as is, the design is kept clean and considerably more proportionate to actual design.
