I bought it New Year's day right when the set came out live on Lego Shop's website. Being the third aircraft set in my collection and my first actual helicopter set purchase this set did not fail to amaze me. The Heavy Lift Helicopter clearly shouts Russian in overall shape, it has a very distinct East European design in it which is not bad because for a fact those helicopters built during the Cold War were one of the coolest and toughest looking helicopters, these have clear purpose which is to haul troops or cargo or just about anything. You open up the box and you have these 6 HUGE blades and lots of white parts and orange components. Building the set is pretty easy and straightforward as the instruction booklet has crisp coloring on the building process. I guess as with most large/ flagship Technic set this one is sticker reliant but then its not a bad thing because they add detail to the set which for me still reminds of those large Mil Russian helicopters. You finish the set and a visual harmony of white and orange finished with dark grey parts that greets your eyes clearly shouting "let's play!" no seriously this is a very enjoyable set and of all 4 functions I like the counter-rotating blades the most which compared to the 9396's conventional approach is fresh and cool yet a simple mechanism does this. I only wish Lego's designers could have at least toyed with an L-Motor for a more responsive play. The winch and opening hatch tandem works well but as a flagship set for the First Half of 2016 I wish this has the higher quality string and aided by the more responsive L-Motor could've been more entertaining, lastly you have the rear hatch which you can load the green cargo (yes it comes with an odd-looking component which you can winch up or pull thru the rear hatch). What I don't like on this set is that unconventional approach on finishing the cabin portion using "memory sticks" and the tail rudders that oddly enough moves freely when you "fly" it, could've been connected to the other tail part (sorry I'm really familiar with airplane parts) Overall I will still recommend this set, it's a toy and one can put or revise anything in it because it's still a LEGO which means anything is possible. The set is very sturdy and really big if you put similarly scaled human toy right next to it you'll think that if it was real surely enough it will dwarf an Augusta helicopter, it's probably one of those "giants" you'll see every now and then on a hangar somewhere in Europe.

I totally agree with Pavementsurfer about the landing gear needing springs or shocks instead of just flopping up and down. Making the front wheel steerable would of made a nice improvement also. I also thought that there should of been a control stick for the flaps on the back. It looks to me like it was meant to have some controller, but the idea was abandoned. It may of been because of the chance of hitting the rotors with your hand that it couldn't be put in the tail like the 42025 Cargo Plane has. There is an orange piece on the tail that looks like it was supposed to be a lever to control the elevator but not implemented. I don't know what it is there for. I'm glad they included the power functions in this helicopter. You had to buy the power functions add-on for the 9396 helicopter.

A rare Technic miss

By Nich

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

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.

It was pretty good except ...

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

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

This is awesome

By Afnan

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

The helicopter is huge, a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I never found my self getting bored at any part of the build. The functions work really well, I just hoped it could work a bit faster at some parts.i would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a great desplay, somthing great to play with and has space!

Exceptional

By Zaphod

from Oxford

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

This is without doubt an exceptionally interesting build. The three steering options, the reversible cab, drive shaft that runs front to back and the easily interchangeable machine attachments all make this one of my favourite technic builds. It would be fantastic if you were able to purchase the silage scoop separately instead of having to rebuild it from the crane. There's also the opportunity there for Lego to produce further attachments which I would definitely buy into. All in all a wonderful, intricate build, all my praise to the designers, keep up the good work.

Heavy lift helicopter.

By Chittslego

from Edinburgh

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

As an ardent Lego fan of Technics ,I had to have this set when it came out. It took a while to build as I don't sit there till its finished. However it was a great build. It is a big model . It compares in size to the cargo plane ,which I consider big. But a few major fault in the build I think. 1 the string used for the winch is awful i.e. too thin and weedy. Even with the weight on it, it still tangles. Maybe Lego need to source waxed black nylon sail thread that seems to work better. 2 I didn't like how the tail fins just flap about. I know you would have spent ages designing this product, so why fall down with lose flapping tail fins? 3 I feel another motor would have been better for the functions and one motor for the blades 4 Surely some lights could have been included? You need to research anti collision lights ie red flashing . 5 The rear undercarriage, surely some shock absorbers could have been used rather than just loose fitting /flapping undercarriage? This is a nice product overall ,I understand keeping the cost down. How ever this isn't a cheap product so for a few extra pounds it could be so much better. I hope these points are seen a constructive. I aim to buy the crawler crane next

First time technic build

By missus

from Twentynine Palms

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

Well over the age listed on the box, but had a difficult time building. Don't get me wrong...he enjoyed it, and loved playing with it even now..but did have to go back a few times and change some parts he got wrong. So the directions were not quite so easy to follow...but came out right in the end...just took longer than basic sets. He said it was worth it.

Feels about 90% complete

By TommyAZ

from Avondale

Comments about LEGO Technic Heavy Lift Helicopter (42052):

I see a few others have posted that it isn't quite right and I can understand that and would have to agree. All in all the model is great and the size of the model was larger than expected. The Kids absolutely love it. Where I think the ideas stopped were on the Back flaps, Rudders, and Overhead Blades. When building the tail section I was like "Sweet! this is cool" and then to see they were not connected to anything to control them was a little bit of a let down (Not a huge one. lol but would have liked to see that Idea completed or ended better). We literally have a few hundred 300+ lego sets in the house. that belong to either the Kids, my wife or myself.. Every set is cool in some way. This set is just neat due to the size and power options. I think a lighting kit would be cool for the two lights on the under side. Also if they would have made this a remote and had more than one powering motor. (Thought for this would be to allow the blades to spin without having to share the same gear system for the other power options. Basically 1 motor for Blades, and the other for the power options.) Maybe then the tail control could have been integrated somehow with a servo. This would have definitely drove the price a little higher I imagine and perhaps may have even upped the build difficulty tremendously, But it would have been very cool as all heck too. The landing gear i was not too upset with as it gives the illusion of the load lifted when the helicopter is a taking off. Over all can't complain i do love it and it was actually purchased for me. I would recommend the product for any hardcore lego nut like me (or my other family members) and can't wait to see where they go with these ideas and what they come up with next.
