Kamov KA-32 Coaxial helicopter

After many cars and other land vehicles, now its time to build something different.

This creation is based in the Russian helicopter Kamov KA-32.

This helicopter has the peculiarity that it has two coaxial rotors turning in opposite directions, instead of the traditional main rotor with a small tail rotor.

Very important note: This creation is a technical demonstration about how a coaxial helicopter works, but actually this MOC can NOT fly!!

It is impossible build a 100% Lego machine that actually can fly by itself.

A real Kamov KA-32 used in Spain for firefighting. I have used the same color scheme .

This MOC has been build in scale 1:16. The rotors has a diameter of 127 studs(102 cm or 40 in.)

The fuselage size is 98x15x23 studs (78x12x18 cm or 30.7x4.7x7.1 in.)

Both rotors are powered by only one PF XL motor and a PF Rechargeable battery(ref. 8878).

Complete rotors control using two swashplates directly from the cabin. Just like the real KA-32.

Collective lever control: fly up-down

Cyclic stick control(both sticks works): fly front-back-right-left(not turn)

Upper rotor pitch pedals: turn right-left

The controls only control de lower swashplate, and this one control the upper swashplate using the there grey links .

The front wheels have free steering.

And the rear ones have suspension, and a side sliding door.

Very quick fuselage disassemble.

I know that all this technical features and strange functions are difficult to understand. So here you have a video showing the helicopter working.

 I hope you like it!!!
