Post by Jens on Sun Apr 26, 2009 8:35 pm

The DefCopters were feared air vehicles piloted by crazed apocalypse survivors.

That's a pretty good overall design. Where did you get that dinamite(SP?)? Green Thumbs up

Sweet! The shape isn't all that bad and the helicopter is just win.

Really nice design on those rotorblades.
I think that picture when he changes the tire looks funny. Laughing
The name Defcoptas rings a bell in my head... Ah, I got it! Warhammer 40. 000! The Orks build Defcoptas made from piles of junk and make them fly.

That looks pretty cool Jens, can that propeller actually spin without breaking or are they not supposed to spin?

Very cool, but of course totally impractical. You only have 1 set of rotors, meaning that if it does get off the ground, the vehicle will spin uncontrollable due to the rotation. You need another set of props to counterbalance that effect.

/pedant

Yeah, it looks cool, very fun. My only complaint is near the front. Get rid of those double cheesers and use a standard 1x2 slope brick.

I would have thought the agent henchman face would have worked better, or the Gold Tooth head... or don't you do yellow?

Meh... I only use flesh for apoc.


Oh and Jake this was made for looks not for a liftoff. Razz
And I did have problems with the front but I really like the "off" look.

Code:

Page One (1)
Defcopter Instruction Manual

Does Not Fly!  Repeat:  The rotor is in place merely to confuse brain-dead nuke victims!  This tri-cycle vehicle has no airborne power whatsoever.  However, the rotors can be started up and used as chopping tools in case a wild long-necked Pdragon comes near the vehicle.

Epic Lulz...

The shape does it for me, as does the minifig. Should get you in, though impractical. That propeller would get you off the ground, and then break 5 seconds later. Laughing

I was going to make a long story about lego not following any rules, not even Gods rules, but you pretty much nailed it by showing people the instruction Manual Razz

Awesome! This is really good, I like the design but I don't like the front engine thing that is sticking out.

I knew you weren't serious about the 'Come to house and murder you' part, I said "are you serious" because you thought that gun was mega blocks. On second thought through, it does sort of look like a mega-blocks gun. However if you knew your brickarms, you would know it wasn't megablocks. Smile

BA all the way!

Thanks for all the kind comments so far, and it was meant to look like a car(thing) which they put rotor blades on.
