Default Show off your Lepton Pics Here

I did a search but I couldn't find a thread for people showing off their Leptons so how about this one? Post your pics here so we can compare setups & canopies! Here are a few of mine.



EDIT: THX Fireup for the sticky!!!

This doesn't have anything to do with pictures of Leptons. You'd get a lot better results making a thread, and waiting for someone that can help to come along and answer. Posting the same question in unrelated threads isn't going to yield good results.

After a ridiculously bad crash, here's the Lepton with HDX 13t tail pinion, boom support rods and boom mount used for the support rod mount wich I think looks cool but used to reduce slipping on the boom thus less vib's - overall, heaps better tail control.

Nice, Is that the Align airwolf fuse? Did you have any problems getting it to fit?

Default Lepton EX

Here's my Lepton with the following:
3102's on cyclic, Spartan DS760 with 9254(helped tremendously with controlling the tail), Jazz 80-6-18, Castle Creations BEC, Hyperion 3025-12 w/ 24t, MJP Carbon lift kit, ESC mount and fin set, Hirobo Stretched boom w/belt (paired with the spartan gives me a bullet-proof solid tail), Trex500 Boom supports, custom CF tail pushrod, MAH 425 main blades and Gorilla Gear lightweight paddles (these alone speed up the cyclics substantially) along with the blade grip ball links mounted in the inner holes and the outer holes on the bellcranks including using the upper hole on the main shaft(which brings the whole rotor head closer to the frame) makes this machine very nimble and quick without the need to run a ridiculous head speed or power system. All this powered by Outrage 4S Lipos.

Is that a die job with that yellow lid? sure looks nice/different.
I got crazy cyclic with the same servos and modest head speed governed 2700-2800 Scorpion 980Kv and lighter TP 4's 2200's than the 3850's that I still use once in a while. Flight time is down to about 3:30 mins though.
My tail is solid with new T63 gear, 401 and rave tail blades, Acts like the seconds hand on a watch when I'm working it. No bounce no wag just solid.
I have to updates my album one of these days.
