Nice creation! Believe it will be even better if the wheels extend out a little more. If this model win, it will be quite sellable due to the fact that the Chinese 2013 Zodiac is Snake! Haha, China toy makers would be interested in your design!

gene, we will see

now something completely different:
first try of a rotorhead with cyclic and collective pitch control. i think it needs some tuning, what do you think?

:) Now you just need to build a helicopter to go along with it.

This has got to be close to the scale of the Lego 9396.  Do you think you can incorporate it?

the rotorhead should fit, only the freightroom would be2 studs lower.  the problem is, where i should place the control stick? Theres no space in the cockpit.
iam thinking about a sikorsky S-58 or something like an apache.

I have a friend who owns a Mosquito helicopter.  It could be an inspiration for a chasis to put your rotor head into.  I also doubt it has ever been done before.

My last project worth sharing http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=76395
I am frequently inspired by this TV show that is on weekend mornings here in Texas. http://www.powerbloc.../shows/?show=XT

wow, this helicopter is very tiny.

i have made the mechanism a little bit more compact

Posted Image

the levers of the cyclic control are now on one axle

Posted Image

these allows to make the collective system more compact and stable. if all cyclic levers will move forward or backwards, the swashplate will move up or down. this works only with an swashplate ball which is good sliding on the axle

here some pics of the inner mechanics

cyclic and collectiv are the controls of the rotorblades. cyclic is controlling the flight directions forward/backward and left/right. collective is controlling up and down

Wow...I don't know how I missed you post about the rotor head.  That is some awesome work you've done!   I think a rotor head with cyclic and collective controls is one of the most technical things to build with LEGO.   Nice work.

The scrapshead moc is looking reallly great as well!

Advance modeler in the making! Can't imagine how if i were to reach this level of technic building. Aesthetically pleasing was the first thought for me in Lego but the Technic gears and motors really got me cracking. Is there a Lego Academy? Should I join the mind storm learning program with the kids during school holidays?

oh, the yellow ones were intended, but somewhere i should have eight of the black ones (when the first 8043 had black tread sprockets)

iam building lego technic since more than 25 years so you should only have patience and fun during building. btw, try and error is a good way to learn how it works or why it not works :wink:
