Who doesn't like ball machines which are more like coasters and which claim height?

After about two months of construction I finally finished building Icarus, my tallest ball machine to date!

Featuring a 7.35 meters ball drop and a 2.15 meters looping it is the largest of its kind!

Be sure to check out my website for more images and information on this machine!

Awesome things don't make themselves, maybe buy me a beer?

Thanks to Oninoni for helping me construct the main tower and the looping!
Thanks to Sandroknexmaster for helping me to build the track around the roses (that track is so long....)
Thanks to Koolcoasterkid for making the awesome background music!

<p>Where's my comment?<br>Anyway, A great building, with a BIG Looping :)<br>And... 40 pieces broke? ;(</p>
<p>Yeah, prolly even more &gt;.&lt;</p>
<p>Great machine, love it!</p>
<p>And congrats on the feature!</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>This is incredible how long did it take for you to make this?!</p>
<p>Thanks! Says it on my website, about two months :)</p>
<p>this is huge! how many knex do you have?</p><p>and did you build this outside? didn't you have trouble with wind or rain or anything? :p</p>
<p>I do not know how much knex I have, this machine didn't use all of my knex either. I'd estimate that this machine used about 30-40k pieces.</p><p>Yes I did build it outside!</p><p>Rain isn't troubling at all, wind was troubling, though, the looping got blown over like three times and the main tower almost got blown over a couple of times, I just happened to be at the right spot in the correct time to be able to save it &gt;.&gt;</p>
<p>wow, the amount of pieces that might have been broken is just insane, and then trying to put everything back to where it was... i would probably never build something outside because of things like bird poop and storms :p</p>
<p>I think &quot;only&quot; about 40 pieces or so broke :P</p><p>That sun did effect the plastic quite some... &gt;.&lt;</p>
<p>Yes, I did build it outside. I'd estimate that this machine used about 30-40k pieces. The wind almost blew over that thing a few times &gt;.&lt;</p>
<p>If Google is correct... (which it almost always), THEN THAT IS <i style="font-weight: bold;">24 FEET TALL!! </i>How do you DO THAT?! </p>
<p>On my website it also has the conversions: <a href="http://www.sorunome.de/knex/ballmachines/icarus" rel="nofollow">http://www.sorunome.de/knex/ballmachines/icarus</a></p><p>And I just built higher and higher....lol xD</p>
