Ventus - K'nex Eurofighter

This is my new K'nex coaster, Ventus.

The Ventus were the Greek Gods of wind, which is the style this coaster has.
Within 3 months I builded this coaster, which is an Eurofighter with many crazy elements. It has some 'original' elements, new style elements and own elements. This is one of the first Micro K'nex coasters to feature full theming. 
  • 97* drop
  • Dog Tongue
  • 2 airhills
  • Turnaround
  • Hearthline roll
  • Many turns
Have fun watching the video!

Want to see how I builded this coaster, more detailed description and things like the initially planned layout? Check out my Blog
Hi there, I saw this and now I really want to build it, so would you happen to know roughly what micro k'nex peices you used so I can buy the right amount? Cheers!! And great work :D
<p>How did you get the micro to hold up so well??!</p>
i'll follow anyone who follows me. oh yeah, i went there! and if you follow me, there could possibly be a big juicy shoe in it for ya! mmm... shoe.
Sorry, had to do this:
Very cool!
Submit this for the showboat contest
Where can I find that contest?
I'm so sorry I meant shopbot and Safari autocorrected on me :) it's right under the contests tab
Can you connect more than one roller coaster car together?
You should enter your coaster in the toy challenge http://www.instructables.com/contest/toy2/
I can't, since that contest started after my coaster was published.
That stinks :(
Already saw this on SScoasters but still EPIC! Very well Done mate!
Thanks! How's Superman Escape going?
Very annoyingly... The turn uses up too much speed... I will be posting an update tonight.
Nice I'm not much of a micro knex fan but when I see stuff like this built out of it it's amazing. Great job :)
Try micro out once, it's pretty good! (and saves storage space :P )
Maybe, but I've herd it's not structurally strong.
True, but if you make good supports (like these tubes), and add a lot of cross-braces it's strong enough, since the cars are not heavy too.
Nice coaster! Maybe I should build some day a coaster... :)
You SHOULD do that!
Just a big problem is, that I don't have much roller-coaster stuff....
Micro track is not that expensive. You can buy some.
But the problem is: I don't even have one single micro knex piece! :P
Get some. Search Ebay :)
Well, I heared a lot of bad stuff about micro pieces, that they are money not worth etc. and I needed anyway a lot of normal pieces for catastropha, and I don't know if I have enouth even yet....and I want to buy me a laptop, so I don't think that I'm able to spend money on them atm, sorry... :(
:( Micro K'nex isn't that bad, you just need to learn how to handle it.
Oh, ok. But another reason why I think I don't buy micro knex is that i'm going in half a year for a year to the us, of cource without knex :P
WITHOUT KNEX??? You wan't survive!
Lol, I try to :P
cool coaster, i like how solid it is. :)
Voted :)
Cool! Im a fan of the station/boardwalk.
Very good job!
Very nice construction :-D <br><br>Great video work too. I'm not much of a coaster guy, but I like this on a lot.
your coaster rocks...nice work...
