It took a while to build as I don't sit there till its finished. However it was a great build. It is a big model . It compares in size to the cargo plane ,which I consider big. But a few major fault in the build I think. 1 the string used for the winch is awful i.e. too thin and weedy. Even with the weight on it, it still tangles. Maybe Lego need to source waxed black nylon sail thread that seems to work better. 2 I didn't like how the tail fins just flap about. I know you would have spent ages designing this product, so why fall down with lose flapping tail fins? 3 I feel another motor would have been better for the functions and one motor for the blades 4 Surely some lights could have been included? You need to research anti collision lights ie red flashing . 5 The rear undercarriage, surely some shock absorbers could have been used rather than just loose fitting /flapping undercarriage? This is a nice product overall ,I understand keeping the cost down. How ever this isn't a cheap product so for a few extra pounds it could be so much better. I hope these points are seen a constructive. I aim to buy the crawler crane nextPlay ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 10 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Heavy Lift Helicopter
- February 1st, 2016Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Russian BeautyEddieTheChronicler | 14-18I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI've built the 9396 helicopters and the 42025 cargo plane, but this set is so much better than either!! I have always loved and admired Russian aviation design, so I was ecstatic when I saw this new Lego helicopter. Designed after the Kamov Ka-32 helicopter, this helicopter not only captures the beautiful design of the helicopter's fuselage and tail but also succeeded in capturing the co-axial rotor design!! In addition, the functions of the moving rudder and aileron, the opening ramp, and the opening bottom of the helicopter are all really really cool functions!! I saw that one reviewer complained that you couldn't use it as a toy when the bottom doors were open. I watched the Technic designer video on this set and then did this myself with my own helicopter, and the tail section is, in fact, sturdy enough to hold whilst playing with. When I open the underbelly and use the winch, I place one hand under the helicopter by the power switch, and with the other I hold on to the tail section. This works just fine for me. I have not built and do not intend to build the B model, but that really intrigued me and I think that it's another great set design. It's based off of the CH-46 Sea Knight, which were popular with Scandinavian governments before being largely sold off to civilian companies, where they remain in very active use. All in all, both designs are pretty cool, but I absolutely love the A model, the Kamov helicopter. I've always wanted a Russian plane or helicopter in a Technic set, and now I finally have one!! If anyone reading this is a serious MOCer with lots of spare parts, this helicopter would also serve as a great base for a MOC Mi-17 cargo helicopter, which I know I've always really wanted to build (Lego- that would be a great set! Just saying!) All in all, this is a very unique set, as Lego rarely bases their designs on Russian engineering; that's what made this set so special for me, and as soon as I saw it I knew I was going to get onePlay ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 1 daysBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Heavy Lift Helicopter
- January 15th, 2016Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great build, small improvements needed.Saphirah | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfLet me start by going off the topic of this specific lego set to help you understand the reason for my thoughts listed below. My first lego technic set in many years (post childhood) was 42025, the cargo plane, controls located in a good spot and very useable. I very much enjoyed that build and got back into lego building this past year with the crawler crane and mobile crane sets, both with good useability/playability, so when I saw that a helicopter was coming out that would go with the cargo plane I had to get it. This build was fun and works well but I would have liked a few small improvements, more for convenience than anything. First off, at certain points in the build you have to flip your part upside down to install something. Both sides of this set are built on so it doesn't always lay exactly flat which can make putting the part in interesting. If you aren't careful you might loosen another part pushing that one in. The set, once larger was a bit unwieldy to put some later parts in. My best option was flipping it upside down in my lap or using a pillow underneath for support. Second, the switch placement. Everything works fine, but using it is another matter. Yes, for most of us we will only turn it on a few times to show the features to friends and family. For those wanting to use it as a toy I can't recommend it as much. To use the cargo door isn't a problem, nor is having the rotors spin. The moment you want to use the cargo hatch underneath or the winch it becomes a bit more of a problem. You can't support the frame anymore from the underside. I would not trust holding the set together by the tail or front end so that leaves me with holding it from the top frame/sides or putting the wheels on the ledge with the cargo door open to the air. That presents a problem if it falls of course. Perhaps changing the locations of some of the controls is an option. The power is on the underside and there is a switch on either side for your controls. The hardest controls to use were the cargo hatch and winch as the power switch is on the underside of the opposite end of the helicopter. As an adult my hands can reach it, but this nearly becomes a two person job for a child I would think. All in all I would definitely recommend the helicopter, it just needs a couple refinements. :-)Play ExperienceAverage rating2out of 5 stars2.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 8 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Heavy Lift Helicopter
- January 30th, 2016Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Bit of a disappointmentpavmentsurfer | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfJust like to start off by saying I was a lego nut as a kid, took a 25 year hiatus and, after getting my daughter a lego set for Christmas this year I just got hooked again. I immediately re-built all my old technic sets from the early 90's. Then, i went out and bought the street bike and the small tracked loader. They were fun but no power functions and not really that challenging. I bought the Arctic Truck and that was what I was looking for. Way more pieces, more challenging build, lots of functions. After I built that I was fully hooked. In the last 2 months I've built the Service Truck, Mercedes Arocs, 24hour race car, and now the Helicopter. Ive got the cargo plane and the mobile crane mkii to build next. So, after that long diatribe, heres my thoughts on the heli. Its a cool looking vehicle, it was a fun and challenging build with no really issues from that perspective. Everything went together exactly as it was supposed to. Its the finished product thats really not what I was expecting. All my other builds have had such rich functionality, everything worked and even some things I wouldn't expect to be functional actually were. This heli lists that the elevator and rudders are "moveable". Based on my previous experience I expected them to have a manual control lever somewhere. But in reality, they just move. Boring and not very impressive or technical. Also, the nose wheel moves and rotates but its not steerable. It would have been very easy to add a steering knob somewhere so the wheel isnt just flopping around. Finally, the landing gear is lacking. Yes it moves, but it just hangs there. It needed to have some sort of function, be retractable or at least have a spring somewhere so they don't just flop around. Other than these few things, its a cool looking kit and it was fun. Worth the $180cdn it costs if you really want it. But if your looking for a real challenge building a vehicle thats truly functional, save up for the arcos or another bigger build.February 5, 2016Lauren - Technical Product Specialist, Consumer ServiceWe're glad to hear you've come back to building LEGO Technic after your 25 year hiatus!
