Week TechVideo, 2010 #06 - Technic plane

Today a nice video from one CAD generated model by Matt G Ellis, for those always demanding that TLG should realease more plane models.
Based on set 8434 (Aircraft) from 2004.

Also because TLG is asking you to design flying machines, in this month of February, for their LEGO Technic Challenge Competition. Lets take some inspiration, from what was already done before.

One excuse less, for not participating!...

Great video and plane!
Makes me wanna try building my own plane, which I honestly can say I haven´t found interesting before.

Great. I was going to build an Osprey for the contest. Now everyone will be entering them. :-)

...or one excuse more...
There is some serious competition out there! Looks like it could be a competitive challenge. Better get building before the deadline! :P

Although this particular model happens to be the worst Technic plane, the animation is still very well done. The assembly could happen a little faster and there could be a bit more overlap between the motions of the parts, but it was obviously a lot of work and looks very good.

Hi, I am Matt G Ellis, thanks for posting about my video. I have a new Lego based animation on my youtube channel that your readers might be interested in, although I'm afraid it's not technic. I'm always looking for new animation project ideas and would apreciate suggestions. Just search "Matt G Ellis" on youtube.
