Air Serpent progress and concern




Here it is, dry fit, and without lugs and trim fins.  I made a RockSim model to get a feel on stability and found it is pretty close as is.  I need to install the final parts and the 'chute, re-weigh it, and update the model.  The bad news is it is getting a bit heavy for the available 'chute space, which is nominally 29mm.
