Did you copy this from one of the Youtube droprides? Or is this the original dropride on youtube?

author
albydesign (author)TheFoofinator2011-06-03

it's not the original on youtube, but i took the idea off there.

author
TheFoofinator (author)albydesign2011-06-03

I don't know which is the original, but you need to give credit to whoever you got the idea from :) IT's great, I love the nechanism.
