I bought this for my 9 year old granddaughter.. She's good with Lego, so I wanted to see how she did with the Technic brand of Lego.. She started out strong, then it became a bit confusing for her.. The Technic Lego has you building parts then putting them together, so for a young person it can get a bit confusing, but we finished it..
I love some of the build techniques and and how all of the gears work. There are a decent amount of stickers but they all blend in with the helicopter and don't look very “in your face". I do love the winch system but I wished they gave more instructions on how to tie the knot onto the hook. I had to look up a specific fishing knot to tie it onto the hook. One other criticism is that I wish there was s but more space in the back of the helicopter where you're supposed to load the stretcher cause the rubber handles where the hook is supposed to hook on to clearly doesn't fit in the helicopter. Other than that it's a great set for the price of 40$!
I wasn't expecting much of this set, but it looks really nice for such a small helicopter. It has some playability and the opening rear doors are a cool addition. When I noticed the doors could open, I expected to be able to stow the life-bed (stretcher). Unfortunately this is not the case.
Overall this set is an improvement over 2011's 8068 Rescue Helicopter. It may be slightly smaller in both size and piece count, but the finished look is more complete. Some great play features and a sleek design makes this a decent model for both play and display.
It's a perfectly serviceable model but it's let down by a crude rotor turning control. An accessory for the winch to hoist is welcome but it would have been nice to be able to put inside the craft once it's been lifted. It's by no means an essential purchase although fans of Technic helicopters like myself will be happy to add it to their collection.
The knob to make the rotors turn is easy to use (as long as you are in flight). The winch is also comfortably located with the knob on the opposite side of the cabin. The doors to the cabin open and so do the doors on the cargo bay.
