3-in-1 LEGO® helicopter to the rescue!
There’s no need to fear when this heroic mountain rescue helicopter is on the job! With working rotors and a back ramp, it also includes instructions for rebuilding the pieces into an exciting air show bi-plane or a high-octane speed boat. A great 3-in-1 building experience!

  • Helicopter to the rescue! Build it, then transform into a bi-plane or speed boat!
  • Rotors on the helicopter rotors really spin!
  • Ages 6+


  • Even though the helicopter is not up to minifigure scale, its 2 other models, the speedboat and the biplane are made up to minifigure scale.
  • In the biplane model, the second wing can be lifted off which creates the impression of a sports plane.
  • On you can get the instructions to make another boat that is powered by a propeller engine at the back.
  • The helicopter is seen in singer Ed Sheeran's music video for the song "Lego House."
