I didn't try 3s,4s or 5s. I go directly to 6s. I enjoy 6S setup very much.

But are your run times very short?

Throttle Curve
IDLE 1 : all 80% = 5.5mins flight with no tictocs
IDLE 2 : all 100% = 4mins flight with lots of tictocs

Thanks for the detailed responses. I really like the Lepton but it has been just sitting. I think I will try the upper hole and my FP Evo 25 2170's. I am using the Kora 15-14 So I will start to look for some pinions.

I'm running a Revco 21T pinion. I think it works out well and I'm near 90% on the throttle curve. I'm also running the Kora 15-14.

what is the optimal 6S setup?
1. Motor - will the 3025 - 10 turn work with 6S
2. Battery
3. Pinion
4. ESC - I am using the align 75amp - will that work,

Is there one 6S batt that will work or do I need to 3S batts,

Thanks,
jeff

Definitely you will love to use the upper hole. I was very surprised too when I changed from the middle to upper. Nothing changes with normal hovering but big difference when doing aerobatics.
Let me know if you have the same feeling.
Thanks,
Qooo,

You are the man! I just did this last night to my heli and flew it in very bad wind. I did notice, however, how quick it was on the cyclic. Much, much better. You combine that with 6s and this is the heli I've been wanting for some time. I have previously been very cautious with the Lepton because of the tail issues but 6s definitely compensates for any powertrain problems inherent in this heli.

You guys are killing me! I want a good 4s setup. Someone must make a motor that will resist bogging and the lost tail that goes with it. My Kora 15-14 21t pinion is not doing the job on 4s.

The 15-14 is better suited to 5S
Get a 15-12 and use your 21T - works good

I love Lepton alot before I actually bought it. I don't like 4S because if I give up Lepton, the opportunity cost is very high. Therefore I started to read alot post, especially Masa's 6S and "Got me a 6S Set Up" from Tail_BoomStrike . Their info are very helpful.

http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t338390p1/

At last, I bought Lepton in Hong Kong and ordered motor, pinions online in order to make it fly with 6S setup.

I tried to fly 1670g with 2500mah 6s1p 25C which was a way too heavy. I give it up. I currently fly my Lepton with 1630g with 2000mah 6s1p 30C.

There are 2 heavy items I am using.
1. Hacker A30-12XL 770kv : 178g + fan = ~ 190g
2. Futaba S9254 : ~46g

If I change to
1. Kora 15-16 690kv : 150g
2. Futaba S9257 : ~26g,
then I can save up to 66g and the flying weight of my Lepton will be ~1564g only. I can imagine how well it can fly.

Someone is flying TRex500 here on Sat. I found that the battery consumption is a way too high. You need to get 2500mah to get 4mins fly with +-11 degrees and not all 100% throttle curve. Meanwhile, I fly my Lepton +-12 degrees + all 100% throttle curve for 4mins and 22.5-22.7v left with 2000mah 6s1p 30C.
