NeilP43 has transformed a LEGO® Helicopter kit from a flightless model to a fully remote control vehicle. “The challenging part with this build is keeping as much of the original LEGO® model look as possible, while squeezing in all the electronics,” says NeilP43.
"I've tried to avoid glue at all cost. The only place it really needs it is the rear motor blocks onto the arms. Everything else is using the magic of LEGO®."
For the first flight, NeilP43 didn't know if the model would fall apart, but as you can see in the video below, it was a success.
A guide showing how it's made is available on Instructables.
Keeping with the flying theme, Arthur Sacek has made a paper airplane maker completly out of LEGO®.
