Bringing Legos to Life with Drone Gear

This iconic LEGO helicopter is the stuff of legend. It's a model of the 6396 International Jetport, but this one is 10 times the size of the original set. YouTuber ajw61185 is the mind behind this project. He used sheet EPS foam covered with 3mm depron foam for the bulk of the structure. The minifig is also carved out of foam. It looks amazing, but the best part is that he actually makes it fly!!

There's 4 motors on the landing skids with large props that essentially make this giant LEGO helicopter a multirotor drone. He's using a naze32 flight board and a 4S 4000mAH lipo battery for power. The whole things weighs in at around 4.5lbs. It flys pretty stable looking in the air and the main helicopter rotor actually spins slowly adding to the effect and presence of this thing. It's super cool and something you'd expect to see as a demo at an event. Kudos to the builder, we love seeing creations like this taking to the skies.

Really neat. Has Lego seen it?

When i was younger, i walked into fao schwarz store for the first time and the giant lego toys blew me away. This is way cooler, though.
