    nop i want to build this one

    and this motor goes faster than each others no ?

    so well i will probably change some gears ...

    (sorry for my bad english i speak french )=

    Yeah the 12V motors are more powerful than the others, but as this isn't carrying any lift up you should be fine with upgearing some other motor.

    ho my god i was confused i was sure it was for a ball machine but no xD

    i think it will go too slowly )=

    I want to build it D'=

    WOW. You do realise there is only 1 of this kind of Ferris wheel on the world, which is also the largest? Great job I wondered when someone would make one they are a real challenge.
