Icarus is a new ball machine - just as Everest this one is going for height! The big ball drop will be about 7,35 meters down, making it the largest k'nex ball drop in the world!
Climbing to such great heights comes with a price, though: This machine had to be carefully designed to be resistant against the wind, throughout the construction I had to keep make it more wind resistant as to the time of construction wind was rather heavy.

Here's the preview stuff:
