Default Semroc Release: April Dancer

Semroc released the April Dancer today.

The April Dancer is a scale model of the missile used in the Man from U.N.C.L.E. shows that was fired from the doors of the car. Stephanie Powers played April Dancer, the Girl from U.N.C.L.E. The name, April Dancer, was created by Ian Fleming for the lead female spy and seemed like a good name for an unnamed missile also.

The original April Dancer used a Centuri MINI-MAX "F"! and was designed and built by Lee Piester for the show. It was never released by Centuri.

The April Dancer is a great backyard or cul-de-sac rocket using an A8-3 for 125' flights. One was flown at Whitakers last month on an F50-6 for "scale" performance. Never saw it again. Requires 2 ounces of lead in the nose cone for stability on an F engine.

Here are some of the few "scale" documents left.
