video 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

Can you connect more than one roller coaster car together?
KneXtreme3 years ago
You should enter your coaster in the toy challenge http://www.instructables.com/contest/toy2/
RNB (author)  KneXtreme3 years ago
I can't, since that contest started after my coaster was published.

That stinks :(

Thanks! How's Superman Escape going?
Tornado96 RNB3 years ago
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 :)
RNB (author)  KneXtreme3 years ago
Try micro out once, it's pretty good! (and saves storage space :P )
KneXtreme RNB3 years ago
Maybe, but I've herd it's not structurally strong.
RNB (author)  KneXtreme3 years ago
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... :)
RNB (author)  Sorunome3 years ago
You SHOULD do that!
Sorunome RNB3 years ago
Just a big problem is, that I don't have much roller-coaster stuff....
RNB (author)  Sorunome3 years ago
Micro track is not that expensive. You can buy some.
Sorunome RNB3 years ago
But the problem is: I don't even have one single micro knex piece! :P
RNB (author)  Sorunome3 years ago
Get some. Search Ebay :)
Sorunome RNB3 years ago
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... :(
RNB (author)  Sorunome3 years ago
:( Micro K'nex isn't that bad, you just need to learn how to handle it.
Sorunome RNB3 years ago
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
RNB (author)  Sorunome3 years ago
WITHOUT KNEX??? You wan't survive!
Sorunome RNB3 years ago
Lol, I try to :P

KneXtreme3 years ago

RNB (author)  KneXtreme3 years ago
Cool! Im a fan of the station/boardwalk.
Very good job!
Very nice construction :-D

Great video work too. I'm not much of a coaster guy, but I like this on a lot.
