Rope.qml Example File

 import QtQuick 2.0
 import Felgo 3.0

   This example shows how to use the RopeJoint.
   The 3 bodies are connected with 2 RopeJoints, which limits the maximum distance between 2 bodies.
   By clicking on the window, an impulse to the right can be applied to move the 2 lower bodies.
