Hello,

Here is a MOC i have build: a large transport helicopter for minifigs, complete with support equipment.
It's been a year since I've first started designing the model with LDD, now I finally came around to building it.
The heli is not really ready yet. I'm looking at reinforcing the landing gear because the heli is quite heavy.

The LDD renderings and some progress pictures can bee seen at http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=496836

The heli has working rotors, powered by a PF M-motor.
The landing gear is retractable.
I have incorporated 2 PF LED's in the interior.
The cockpit is detailed with front and overhead instrumentpanels, 2 cyclic and 2 collective sticks and of course the minifig crew.
The cargobay is quite large and unobstructed.
There's a cargosling hook on the underside.
Furthermore I've put many details on the model like various antenna's, rear view mirror's and (non functional) lights.

Have you got a breakdown of the main rotor? Ive built a rotor using some technic parts but the blades droop too much and catch on the tail section too much, so I want to make them rigid. Was hoping to see how you did yours.

Cheers

AWESOME creation and PF too ! :excited:
Great designing 'Plastikman', I like the support vehicle too ! :classic:
Try deep linking some of those images here to tease people to your Flickr page (as long as the size doesn't exceed 800x600). :classic:

That is indeed very nice - both the helicopter and the ground vehicles. Very realistic - and huge! :)

I agree with the suggestion that you should deeplink some of these images. It's not difficult, and it will make more people look at them.

Looks fantastic. Is it based on a real heli? Looks like you have the main and tail rotors synchronised too, nice.

That is one HUGE heli you designed and built. It looks great, very realistic. The added PF is a great addition, as well as, the ground support. Very nice work here, Plastkiman  Posted Image

Wow, this thing is really huge. Very impressive. With these great ground vehicles it looks like an official set.

Keep it up!  :oh:

Amazing how you managed to squeeze the power function in for the main and tail rotor, and still keep a clear loading bay.

From the color it looks like one of the rescue helicopters we get flying overhead, really like them except maybe a bit bigger? Nice detail though and very realistic especially with those support vehicles.

Here is how I did the main rotor (see attached picture). The droop is there because of the technic pins I used (this to be able to put some pitch in each blade)
The rotor itself is quitte sturdy and it doesn't break at all. In fact I am very pleased how the blades droop, it really adds to the realism.

Here you can see how the motor is build in the model:

The battery box isn't build in, it is too large. I have to put it beside the helicopter or in the cargo bay when running the motor.
