Motorized Lego Technic Avatar Helicopter is Grounded—For NowS

Give this Lego Avatar helicopter a few aerodynamic tweaks, a slightly more powerful engine and a pilot spouting off canned, predictable dialogue, and I could easily see it taking flight, literally, to fight the Na'Vi.

I mean, the rotors appear to be spinning at quite a clip in that video don't they? Enough to sting a stray finger, in any event.

Looks pretty sturdy too, which is incredibly important should the pilot happen to have a James Cameron-sized ego. [Nowhere Else via CrunchGear]
