Mayahuel Gunship, Tequilatron VTOL. DA2 category 8: helicopter. Built with tiltrotors, retractable landing gear, crew of two, opening cockpit and mounted guns.
About this creation
The Mayahuel Gunship, also nicknamed 'Sky Dominator' is a tactical and weapons-packed helicopter capable of traveling long distances due to it's tiltrotor system. Inspired by the V22 Osprey and the Apache helicopter, this hybrid was developed to support and coordinate the Tequilatron war effort from above. Its name is derived from the Aztec female goddess of booze. Nuff said.

Decisive Action 2 Category 8: Helicopter

Tactical mobility, the ability to traverse difficult terrain in order to place weapons in a position to engage the enemy at his weakest point, or the ability to move troops into and out of difficult terrain faster than the enemy is crucial. The principal of mobility is often weighed against the principal of survivability (the ability to absorb damage and press on with your mission). At the extreme end of this equation, we find modern rotary wing combat systems. Both attack helicopters and transports tend to be fast, and fragile. In the case of the attack helicopter, they generally represent the most powerful tactical offensive capability. As transports, they often move troops to the most important parts of the battle field. In DA2, combat rotary wing capability is represented by your Helicopter MOC. Your Helicopter MOC must comply with all of the following 5 specifications:


1. Your Helicopter MOC must be minifig scale.
2. Your Helicopter MOC must include a minimum crew of two, with a designated Pilot and co-pilot.
3. Your Helicopter MOC must be shown resting on the ground on landing gear or landing skids.
4. Your Helicopter MOC must have at least one mounted weapon of any type.
5. Your Helicopter MOC must have a minimum of two rotors.

Well I needed some beefy border patrol with all the kegs of tequila disappearing lately ;) Haha, thanks David!
Quoting David Roberts A n impressive and heavily armoured looking machine. I think that this is because of all of the curved parts that you've used. It also has quite a smooth appearance. I like the curve of its nose and the cockpit it contains, plus it has a proper, wheeled landing gear. Great build and presentation too.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti I absolutely love this! I jumped over 50 emails to check this out when I saw it on the front page. I think this is my favorite build in DA2! I love the whole concept. The ospreys tilt rotor and the Apache's body and a whole lot of weapons! I love the props by the way. Awesome cockpit to. Magnificent outstanding work Sir! I salute you.

Might I suggest a few shots of good ol' tequila to fuel the creative mind? You can have some of those lime parts with it if you want to! No I'm not trying to sabotage you ;) Thanks for your support general Remy, the respect is mutual. Can't wait to see your take on the category, keep calm and brick on.
Quoting Tom Remy Hem... I need a GOOD idea for a chopper! :D Excellent build Pico, it's massive and yet elegant. You may have noticed how much I like lime parts, so each of your TT creation touches me! And now seriously, back to building. ;-)

Oh it's a place called 'the attic'. In fact, I practically live there these days lol :D My BL seller does a great job providing all the necessary parts quickly, I do try to keep things complete as long as possible. But yeah sometimes demolition is inevitable :P. Thanks for the support Michael
Quoting Mihe Stonee great! and now tell me where did you buy this cool series :-) ! the question really should be - do you dismantel all the other lime builts or do you have a flaterate on Bricklink :-) ??

Thanks Allan! Glad you like it :) Although lime green is not per se the number 1 intimidating color, I hope it's overall look compensates :D I might rework this into a military variant after DA2. Camo colours and stuff..
Quoting Builder Allan Very awesome! cool shape, good use of parts and so many cool details. It looks great in the discrete lime color scheme too :-)

Haha I just made a new BL order to compensate ;) I'll tell you, my seller is a happy man these days! I did have to dismantle the airship though. The tank, fighter, marines, walker and powersuit still stand nicely grouped on the shelf. There is a tailrotor, but it's top secret and therefore hidden in shadows.. *cough*. Thanks buddy!
Quoting Stephan Niehoff So, you will soon have no more parts. AHA, it looks to me as if you have dismantled some of your Moc's here. Or do you have a new supply of bricks come by. In any case, this Gunship has become very beautiful. I like the cockpit and the rotors. At the rear, I can not really see a rotor. But I think there is one, right? This masterpiece of you shows the attention to detail you work. Simply brilliant my friend.

Haha me too and it has occured more than once :D Kids want to as well, but I'll not let them crash this baby yet. Thanks chief, and I'll take the no-nonsense approach in to account for my upcoming builds. I've just read the rules update thread, this affects my apporach to presentation as well.

Thanks Quinn. A bit, I actually sticked more to the Osprey and Apache rather than the Vertibird. The Vertibird has a more bulky and sinister front look. It is however one of my favorite games and I am totally waiting for november when Fallout 4 is due!
Quoting Quinn Beeson Amazing work! May I ask, were you inspired at all by the Fallout Vertabird in any way?

Thanks Damon, it has become one of my favorite builds to date. This is definitely a keeper. Swooshing this thing around making chopper sounds is so much (geeky) fun. If time allows, I'll add a video later on :D
