Nice guys! More submissions please!! :D

That element idea looks amazing! What about just flipping the whole element the other way round? :-\

Yeah if you put the supporting structure on a V-shape thing (with 90 degrees difference) and then flip it over on the other side.

Hi, welcome to KF! :)
Your ball machines are small and compact, so easy to build for people that want to start with them. They look good and well built! Keep it going!

Nice! I like the contest :) Not able to participate :( but I'll vote for sure!
Mini contest (or if the people can't decide which model is the best): Make a guess how many white connectors will be used for the whole contest.

P.S. Some K'nexflux members are in South America/Southern Hemisphere and here it's all apart from 'cold' and 'winter' haha

Hey Linkin, that's a shame to read. But I think it will come back when you get a little older. Store up your knex, but don't sell it please! I think because you loved it so much in the last years, you will love it in some years from now, when you suddenly see the box.
Will you stick around on the forum some times? :) Would be nice!

If you want to keep using 1 ball, another trick would be to use a longer arm. Because:
M = F * a
Explenation:
Moment (physics) [Newtonmeter] = Force [Newton] * arm [meters]
So, the longer the arm, the less force is needed to have the same momentum (force to rotate), thus making it easier to pull the cart.

Seeing as your arms are already pretty long, perhaps this is not the best solution. I like @Linkin_J_Knex 's option, to make the arms heavier.

General Knex Discussion / Re: Where can I buy those motors
« on: November 07, 2016, 06:11:51 pm »
Are there any other uses for the white gears? I hate three of them but no motor.

I believe there aren't :( They could have made them into 1:1 ratio gears I guess. (That's a reason to haTe them, but I guess you meant haVe them)

And @Lexi Knex , they sell them on KnexUserGroup, but I guess to Canada, shipping gets a little high, unless you buy 3 of them + other pieces?

Fallout? Maybe something like a moving sentry bot, or prydwen model, oh gosh there's so much xD But i understand if you don't play or like fallout we could do something else.

Hmm, nope I don't play Fallout.. today I started playing Portal 2 though...
But I mean, can you think of something different, like a mechanical object? Or something you'd always would like to see in K'NEX but never knew how to make it?

That's optional. When knex asks you to be FOTM, they will send you questions and they just say answer the questions, not specifically to state the questions. So stating the questions is optional. :)

How would you like to see an interview? Like, with skype? Realize that documenting a direct questionary interview is quite hard. But I like the idea! :)

I feel like I had to mention enough times "how good knex is for you(r education, growing up etc), otherwise they don't pick your story. So I would prefer that KnexFlux FOTM works with different questions more based on playing and enjoying and learning, rather than promoting the Knex brand itself. I mean, we all know they're not making sets like before -_-

And what I would find really interesting is if you just do your own story, how you got in touch, what inspires you, how you see your development over the years, what you're jealous about, what you're most proud of, and something random or so.

Something like that? :P
i think i would prefer an interview or something like that but i like your ideas  ;)

Well interviews can be nice :) Prepare some questions.
The problem with me is that I will talk and talk and talk, and get away from my original point. So for me that wouldn't work out, haha

Edit: Why wasn't there any text?  :o
