How do you beat level 7 in Inca civiballs 2?

First, you drop the ball first to the right of the biggest ball.Then, cut the left chain of the red ball and drop it into the launcher on the right and cut the chain launcher for that one.The ball should go flying upward and bounce of the biggest ball. Drop the biggest ball when it is swinging to the left. This will make it fall into the crevice above the green ball. Then, drop the green ball into the left launcher.It will fly upwards, bounce off the biggest ball, and fly into its green cup. Now there should only be the red ball and a gray ball on a chain. Drop that ball. It will fall onto the red ball, and the red ball will roll into its red cup. By the way, do'nt worry about Inca level 8. That is 2 E-Z! Happy Civiballing! :D
