- Rotors spin, the main rotor much slower than the tail rotor as would be in real life
- The rotor angles can be adjusted for lift
- The wheels move in and out as one
- The winch goes up and down
- The Tail lift goes up and down
- Sliding doors
And most are controlled from a single turning wheel through a 4 way switchable gearbox. The engineering involved is detailed and very well thought out. Technic Lego these days is made not in layers like normal Lego but with bars and pins. This is more like Mechano but without the tedious doing up of bolts. The advantage is that the model is rigid. I can pick this up by the tail and it is rock solid.
It is also massive. 60CM from end to end. Building is fun too. It comes with 3 build books and I would guess the build lasted 12 hours or more. I did separate colours of bricks into Tupperware boxes first though to make finding things easier and allow me to stop building without losing bits.
Just an amazing model for anyone technically minded.
I've not tried the alternative model, but have kept the original helicopter instead. The gearing system is particularly clever and allows you to reroute the various drive shaft so that turning the main handle will alternate between driving the main rotar, deploying/hiding the weeks, operating the winch or stowing the rear entrance flap.
Was great fun to build and sits pride of place on my office desk, much to the envy of my other work colleagues (who also admit to being big kids).
