LEGO Technic - Heavy Lift Helicopter - 42052 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool helicopter The heavy lift helicopter was is a very detailed Lego model with lots of cool motorized functions. Pros: - it's very fun to play with -all the different motorized functions (winch, rotors, Bombay doors...) Cons: -the rotors do not spin that well when you put the helicopter at a angel -the rotors also do not have a that much torque at all

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Technic marvel for every helicopter fan Helicopters have been a part of Lego Technic's repertoire for nearly two decades now, and I'm pleased to say, they've only gotten better and better. First, a bit of background on the set and the model itself. Unlike its predecessor, the Search and Rescue 9396 helicopter, the Heavy Lift Helicopter (HLH) is the first Technic helicopter to feature coaxial rotors (two sets of spinning blades, instead of tail rotor). Closest resemblance the HLH is the real-world Kamov-27/29 "Helix" Russian coaxial helicopter, though part of the fuselage design borrows some cues from the Mil Mi-26 helicopter, a (also Russian) heavy-lift military heli. The set and build experience: At more than 1,000 pieces, it's a massive helicopter that will easily dwarf most models in your collection. As such, it's very satisfying to see it grow before your very eyes bit by bit. For some reason or another, Lego ditched the numbered bags idea and separate instruction manuals, and instead went with a single-piece instruction "book" I guess. The un-numbered bags were okay, as parts were never too hard to find, but DO NOT mix the piles from the bags, keep it all separate... or you will extend your build time by at least a few hours (since you have to find every little part). The numbering and separate instruction manuals kept you from doing that. Fortunately, Lego did this instruction manual in a modular fashion, meaning each section is broken down across several pages, which keeps you from becoming overwhelmed. Still important to pay attention, as misplaced parts can cause problems later in the build process. With all the new-style parts and challenging design, you will surely enjoy building this helicopter every step of the way. It took me just over five hours to build, but I'd say build at your own pace. Playability factor: This is by far the most satisfying Technic helicopter yet, and that's largely due to the power functions that come with the set. A very impressive and complex gearbox managed to fit in four functions: the coaxial blades (btw, spin slowly, then reach their full rotation, which is really cool) a winch system, and two separately-opening cargo bay doors, one underneath and one at the rear. My only grievance is that the clutches inside the gearbox either don't always engage or bind up if two functions are used simultaneously. This is not to say that the mechanism doesn't work, in fact it works very well with all four functions, but it does require some extra care. Conclusion: If you always wanted to have a massive helicopter to display or play with, the HLH does both rather well. Its power functions capability gives it the edge over any other Technic helicopter released in recent memory, and it lives up to its name. Some things could have been done better, in my opinion: - L-motor instead of an M-motor. It would have been faster and more powerful, especially handling the stresses of four functions. - No controls for ailerons on the rear and the cockpit. This is a bit of a shame, because part of it is already hooked up. A DIY from the set's designers perhaps? Final thoughts? Get this set and live out all the heavy-lifting/rescue fantasies you always wanted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A rare Technic miss Worst instructions of any kit I've ever done. Several times, I needed to undo an hour's work just to go back an fix something that wasn't clear. Also, in the final product, the various powered functions didn't work nearly as smoothly as other kits' options would. Kit looks cool, and the contra rotating blades are great, but overall, this wasn't a super fun build to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Set I have had my eye on this set for a while. It came up at a competitive price and with click and collect at my local store I completed the transaction very easily. Very pleased alround

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was pretty good except you can't you two functions at once or it will slow down so I think they need to swap the small motor to a medium motor
