K'nex coaster update
I have most of the superstructure completed, and it is now awaiting assembly in my yard. The two large half-circle pieces will soon be joined together to form the largest K'nex vertical loop ever built (to my knowledge). The loop will be 12 feet in diameter and will be the main attraction of the launched rollercoaster. The launch track will lead directly into the loop, followed hopefully by a return track consisting of a few small hills. The loop will be supported by the large frame on the bottom, and a 13 foot A-frame on the top. One of the legs of the A-frame can be seen in the grass on the left side. I hope to finish the structure tomorrow and start track assembly for testing by this weekend.
