K'nex Corkscrew


Corkscrews are relatively common in K'nex roller coasters, so I decided to make one with a 2-railed ball track. After several days of tedious fine-tuning, I finally have a working model completed. I can not guarantee that this will make it into the final machine, as reliability may become an issue, but here it is now. Filmed at 30, 300 and 840 frames per second.
