Bricklist notes
One of the first four Technic sets was this helicopter. The sticks in the cockpit move the angle of the rotor blades. A very clever mechanism considering the available parts at the time.
I think this is still the largest Technic helicopter ever released.

Bricklist notes
Whirlwind Rescue from 1992 is probably the best helicopter set ever. It is packed with features: rotor blades controlled with the flex system, retracting landing gear and a working winch.
It may not be the prettiest but with so many functions, who cares?

Bricklist notes
Cool movers is as much about the truck as it is about the helicopter. Unfortunately both fail to impress with no functions at all. It's built with Technic pieces but this doesn't really deserve to be called a Technic set.

Bricklist notes
Three years in a row with a Technic Helicopter and after 35 years we have another helicopter with pitching rotor blades! Other functions are retracting landing gear, a winch and opening doors and cargo ramp. No working stick in the cockpit but it still looks like a proper successor to the Whirlwind Rescue.
