This might be heresy...
but have you considered an I/R guided airplane, could cut the
engine close to the target, the target could be near the ground with a
net in front of it.
A bit limp compared to a rocket (real men use rockets?) but you
might establish a stable guidance system better that way. You could
think of it as a cruise missile perhaps.

Actually, that is a very interesting idea... I once thought about uses for a
system of directing small aircraft via beacons to regularly survey areas or
deliver small items quickly and autonomously.

Out there, but worth thinking about.

For a power A/C, a Pusher prop would be best IMO.  Less chance of
breaking the prop that way.

How about a glider?  Could launch it most anywhere, have it search then
glide to the target...

A conventional prop could be used to chop the target IR.
