What a fun heli to put together.
I just posted Step 1.

I think I am burning a bit to much video for just step one but let me know what ya all think? Too much detail? Should I speed things up a bit?

Just posted step 2 (step 2-1 in the manual).
I had to break it into 2 video parts or the single video would have been 100 meg!

Wow this a a very large step all in one page. I am pretty sure I covered everything and I hope this helps new people get through it!

Please let me know what you think! Too much detail etc?

Bob

Looking very good Bob. Very detailed, but I think not to . Complete is a better word. Makes me want a Lepton to build along with you.

I just posted Steps 15 & 16.
I highly reccomend disassembly of the head as I found some trouble. e.g. no grease on a thurst bearing and some screws didnt have locktite.

Hi Bob,

My Lepton arrived today so I will be starting the build. I've watched all of your T-Rex as well as your Lepton build videos. I think they are right on whether a person is a n00b (me) or experienced. A person can always learn something. Thanks for taking the time to produce them! George

I think the vids are just about right, I've built a few before but I'm watching them with interest and learning a thing or two.

Supplies in the UK always seem to be a bit behind and anyway a new TX, a T-Rex SE and 4 lipo packs recently and my wallet is a bit light for a while anyway.

I'm most interested to see the lepton steps you skipped and the final motor selection/setup - must learn to be patient :cool:

Anyway, thanks for the effort you're putting, I've certainly recommended them (and Heli Freak) to my flying buddies.

Step 22 "partial" has been posted.
It is clear if you follow the steps in the manual you may have to do some dissassembly depending ont he motor used. I am using as Hyperion 3025-10 and you will simply not get access to the motor screws with the main gear, pinion, and boom installed. Again your experience my vary depending on the motor used.

Enjoy,
Bob
