Glider

My very first attempt to build something that can fly. I think the indoor performance looked a bit more promising, but in the end, it does not fly bad at all.

I want to buy another 8052 set, to make this Mobile Crane alternate -- your "4th alternate model of 8052. The mobile crane features steering, stabilizers, rotating superstructure, raising 3 section boom with winch and opening doors." :thumbup:

I converted Grohl's 189-step photo-sequence Building Instructions (for his 8052 Mobile Crane alternate) into a single, 26.2-MB PDF file that can be downloaded here via SkyDrive. All the pages are numbered for ease of printing. Grohl's photographs are very clear; he sure thinks of a lot of GREAT alternates for Lego Technic sets! :classic:

Thank you again, David. I am working on a 8081 alternate and it is going to be some sort of a dropship. :devil:

A bit late, but I really love your chopper! Very well done! Could be a set of it's own.

@ grohl: Nice to see your SPOT-55 in action! :thumbup: By the way, I like the soundtrack on your YouTube video above -- Jimi Hendrix's [Let Me Stand Next To Your] "Fire"!

Nice alternate model! :thumbup: It looks "wicked" with the multiple weapons on it! :devil: Were you inspired by the "Halo" game?

In this case I started with the folding mechanism of the wings and built the rest of the ship around it using my fantasy. The problem is that all the dropships look pretty much the same.

I build your 9394 c-model, the helicopter, today.

It is a really good alternate and fun to build. Looks great as well.

The only downside i came across is that the instructions miss some small steps.

For me no problem, but i was building with my brother, (no experience in building technic lego) so i had to help a few times.

Anyway, please keep doing these nice alternates. You're quite good at it!

Thank you for the instructions :classic:

The model reminds me of the Lego Technic helicopter from this year.

BTW; I made a simple pdf of the instructions, you can download it here from my dropbox :classic:
