Introduction: Knex Half Pipe Element

This is a new half pipe element I have made for a ball machine using the green RC (roller coaster) connectors. It's pretty easy to build from the pictures. If you have questions or if something is unclear please comment below. Enjoy the video! P.S. It's more smooth if you add more RC connectors.

I mean this type of half pipe. I know I'm not the first to use the half pipe, all I meant was I've never seen one like the one I have built.

AH! With the coaster tubing.

Yes I haven't seen one with that either. :)

cool but would it be better if you add more counterweight, so it will roll longer?
still a nice design! :)

I tried adding more counter weight but for whatever reason if I added just one more piece it wouldn't work.

Sorry guys I guess I've never seen one like this. I always see the other ones with the orange RC track and connectors.
