Introduction: Two Ball Flipper- a K'nex Ball Machine Element

About: I like to build with K'nex and Lego.

I call this element Two Ball Flipper because when the second ball goes in, the balls flip over each other. Note: A ball must come in the top entrance track, and then another ball must come in the lower entrance track for the element to work properly.

Here is the parts list:

    Thanks for following me!

    looks nice! I like multi ball elements a lot :). Is it possible to remodel the final track, so the element has fewer height loss?
