LEGO Technic V-22 Osprey design flaw details & possible fixes

The LEGO Technic 42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey set was cancelled because of its military relations, but as it was discovered soon it has another dark secret.

Here is the guide that can help you with a simple disassembly to be able to separate the top section and get access to the gears:

The first possible fix that did not work on a longer term was published by Huw on Brickset.

RacingBrick’s coloring and activity book

Free coloring and activity book in pdf format with images of my remote controlled LEGO vehicles and some fun little LEGO-related games

This Easter is very different from the previous ones, we are advised to stay home, can’t visit our friends and family, so you’ll probably do what I do – spend these days indoors. I wanted to create something that makes this isolation a bit easier, but I did not create building instructions this time since getting LEGO parts might be challenging nowadays.

So this is it, my coloring and activity book! Most of my remote control modifications are waiting there to be colored, and there are a few little games that you can enjoy. The book is not only for kids, I hope everyone will enjoy spending some time with it!

The buggy has 4 wheel drive, it is equipped with 2 L motors and a Servo motor. It has an AAA battery box and an IR receiver by default but for this occasion I swapped them with a BuWizz unit and also replaced the wheels. The location is the beautiful hill of Hegyesd (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hegyesd), hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed shooting it 😉
