Get ready for a ride on Phi.L GBC builder’s module “Grande Roue”. This very cool LEGO Great Ball Contraption module is a closed-loop LEGO ball machine, powered by an M-motor with a gearing system that reduces its initial speed. This fairly compact LEGO GBC has a large ferris wheel with eight baskets attached to it that carries the balls to a ramp and a spiral staircase (that helps slow the falling balls). A mechanism at the base of the GBC module allows the ball to be deposited in perfect time when a basket passes by. Made for 4 balls, you can easily reproduce this module thanks to free building instructions proposed by Phi.L. A pleasure for the eyes, to be reproduced for infinite satisfying watching.
