Default So, would you build this?

Curiosity question really. Just built the Snake Jumper and was having a flight of fancy. Not a Semroc Groony kit, just based on the Snake Jumper rkt file

Nice! Is it named after the puppet show from the 60's?

A gooney-like XL5? It's worth a shot.

The Snake Jumper has a similar configuration and the rkt file has the tip fins configured on the pods so I thought I would give it a whirl. One interesting feature of Rocksim that I was unaware of is that if you define half a fin (the upper half) the program will create a mirror along the long axis. Not sure how I did that but it was most helpful; - draw half and then copy and paste. It is probably too long for a true Groony, shortening it might make it more cartoon in appearance but it goes pretty unstable. A C6-5 flies to about 950 feet though.
