Features:

1 x M-Motor (which can spin the blades surprisingly fast!)
Fully functional duel controls for pilot and co-pilot
Joysticks tilt the rotor blades
Control levers adjust the pitch angle of the rotor blades
Upper knob wheel raises the stretcher
Yellow handle releases ratchet to drop the stretcher
Lower knob wheel raises and lowers the landing gear
Over 80cm long
Number of pieces, at a VERY rough guess ~1300 but I could be way off!
Design/build/one or two minor bug fix time 40-60 hours
Even the best can be made better, but most important is to be excellent to each other and party on dudes!!!!!!

The pictures need to be deeplinked. Just click on an image until you see a white background, and copy the URL/link code from there. :wink:

Sounds interesting!

Oh my God! That thing is awesome! It's motorized, it's professional, and it's huge! The front is very well built. You even managed to tune it with the back blade! The landing gear is even maneuverable, and the blade control! The only thing left to do with this would be to mechanize the winch and make it fly! :tongue:

This is an excellent MOC! :thumbup:

I originally planned to motorise the winch and landing gear via the same motor through a gear box and also have the pitch of the tail rotor blades adjustable via peddals in the cockpit but I decided against it as I probably would not be able to finish it in time for the competition. Maybe I will make these changes in the future. Thankyou for your kind remarks (and for telling me how to deeplink the pictures  :wink: )

It won't be long before The Lego Group says, "And the winner of the LEGO Technic Challenge Competition is.... allanp!"  What a well-designed model!   :thumbup:    Although I had submitted a contest entry (a 4-engine cargo plane), your MOC is MUCH BETTER than anything I could do.   :blush:

dooooooaaaaaawwwww shuks  :blush:

Thankyou!

A four engine cargo plane sounds interesting. I've wanted TLG to release a multi-engined (as in actual engines, not props) plane for ages as I think it would be cool. I've not seen any MOCs of a multi-engined plane either.

Great job! Reminds me of the rescue helicopter lego relased in the 90's. So many functions, and details! The competition is really tough!

You have given me some tough competition too, I saw Avatar for the first time yesterday and thought of your MOC.

Very impressive model. I love the swashplate mechanism on the main rotor. It's more compact than any others I've seen in the past. You have also done the angled beam connections around the tail wing nicely. :thumbup:

Superb MOC! I especially like the way you made the blades tilt.

This is what a studless 8856 on steroids would probably look like :thumbup:

Great model, it really does look like a modern, mega-8856. Good luck :thumbup:

Very well made heli! Love the swashplate and the overall look of the MOC. Bet this would sell well as an official model, it has so many things that make Technic sets great: Real functions, looks and you get so see the inner workings!

Best of luck in the competition!

Wow that's huge! I'm guessing it has quite a lot of working functions!

Yes, it had quite a few:

Elevator rudder, controlled by a large pneumatic piston
Side rudder, controlled by a small pneumatic piston
Ailerons, controlled by two small pneumatic pistons that work in opposite directions
Retractable landing gears, controlled by five large pneumatic pistons
Opening/closing loading hatch at the back, using one small and one large pneumatic piston that work in opposite directions
Steerable nose wheel, using one geared down 9V motor
Main engines rotate the propellers, uses four old style 9V motors
Automatic pneumatic compressor
