First of a simpler series.
I decided to make this a simple aircraft without a cockpit or many details because, I'm not a helicopter nerd and these kinds of helicopters have the most complex interiors and cockpits of any aircraft, which I don't want to make all of them dials. Anyway. One advantage is that this is my first mobile friendly build in years lol. 500 parts.
Anyway, you're probably thinking "I seem to recognise this helicopter..." and you'd be right. It is based on the Lego Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter set 42052.
Another thing you might notice is that this has been painted in the default paint scheme. And it actually doesn't look too bad in my opinion! In fact, it looks great! Other than the fact that, the red and green lights on the tail had to be changed to orangy-red and blue. :p
VTOL up: Rotors and the engines
Trim up: winch
Activate 1: Rear cargo door
Activate 2: Belly cargo door (Doesn't open when you're on the ground)
Activate 7: Them nose lights.
Take off and landing are pretty obvious. I recommend setting the VTOL slider up only a tiny bit. especially for landing.
Cruise: VTOL all the way up, about 60-70% collective for speedy flight, about 50% collective for normal cruise.
