    This is by far, for me, the most detailed Helicopter I have ever built that the Lego Technic has designed and distributed. This is massive and has a lot of features! Just taking my time, it probably took me about 4-5 hours just enjoying the intricate detail of building this set from the ground up. Makes me curious while you're building how the main rotor head functions as well as how all 3 landing gear assembly retracts simultaneously! I had my friend assemble the 2nd model featured and its rotor head functions are as crazy to look at as well! It was fun looking at it! I do recommend installing the power functions for this ginormous helicopter to fully enjoy it's features without having to turn the gear to be able to move each feature. So sad they ran out of that set. I wished this set came with it.

      My teenage son has wanted this set for years. He has since changed the original design many times and added power functions. He really enjoyed the build. The final result now rests on a stand he build, on his shelf.

        I bought my son this set ...

        By HappyLegoMom

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LEGO Technic Helicopter (9396):

        I bought my son this set for his 5th birthday and he was excited while we walked out of the store. Before this build, he was able to finish the highway pickup truck of Lego Creator in one day, so I thought this was just a little bit harder for him. However, it turned out to be a real challenge shortly after he started to build it. The parts are quite different from the Creator sets an it took him a while to get use of it. He made some mistakes, felt frustrated and even walked away a little while sometimes. Finally it took him two and half days, including about a day of crying and standby due to frustration, to finish it and when completed, we found it very amazing, big and playable. I do not give a full scale because the instruction is not as clear as our other Lego sets, maybe because it is more complicated.

          Kids had a blast building and playing with set. I bit difficult to assemble in places, but with Dad's help makes a good family-time activity. Definitely 'swooshable'. Although you can get the motor and battery box, not really needed.

          Helicopter reaches high heights!

          By LegoTechnicCraze

          from Eugene

          Comments about LEGO Technic Helicopter (9396):

          For all the Technic fans out there, this set is by far one of the best for its playability and price-to-awesomeness ratio! The box doesn't look that big, my friends, but once you start building this helicopter, it becomes immediately apparent that this is not your normal-sized Technic copter. I mean, this thing is massive! At almost two and a half feet long and nearly two feet wide, you better have lots of extra display space available, because you are going to need it. I was also surprised at the mechanical ingenuity that went into designing this behemoth of a machine. While the build isn't too terribly difficult, one can definitely appreciate the attention to detail that was obviously injected into every square inch of this spectacular model. Aside from the slow hand-cranking functions (which can be remedied by purchasing the power functions set) and the winch hook being too light for proper up and down movement, this set gets an enthusiastic thumbs-up from this Technic fan! Enjoy!

                Lego's Technics line is a great way for kids to graduate from building stuff that simply LOOKS like vehicles, machines, etc. to actual working models with a focus on mechanicals and moving parts.

                Great way to move kids into exploring beginning engineering and design.

                  We bought this item for our 11 year old son for Christmas. It is the perfect gift for a Lego loving boy who enjoys the engineering aspect that the Technic line offers. The helicopter is larger than we expected and is sturdy and fun to operate even without the power functions which have to be bought separately. Even our 18 year old son who is studying mechanical engineering joined his brother in putting together the 'copter, commenting on the "cool" and life-like qualities of the product. Even though Lego Technics are a bit pricey, they are quality and educational toys.
