I live in Hong Kong. Could anyone tell me which online shop is selling the following items for Lepton?

Lepton 9650 Frame Set $$88.25
Lepton Rear Frame Connector Kit $16.25
Lepton ESC BEC Mount $$10.83
Lepton Base Plate $19.63

I emailed to Mark from MPJ Carbon. First of all, They Do Not ship out of the States except to Dealers. Secondly, Mark recommends http://www.rchover.com or http://www.fxaeromodels.com who are not posting/selling "Lepton 9650 Frame Set" which I need the most because I have a little crash 2 weeks ago with a broken rear bottom.

MPJ has the frame set but they don't sell out of US but Online shops out of US don't have them posted or in stock. Where should I buy???

Any help would be very appreciated!

I checked RCHover which Mark recommends but the eshop only shows the "Lepton Upgraded Frame Set" but not "Lepton 9650 Frame Set" which I want to buy. If they only have "Lepton Upgraded Frame Set", I would rather to buy the original Hirobo Lepton frame in Hong Kong.

Mark says MPJ only makes 1 frame now which fits S9650 and is called "Upgraded Frame Set".

In his website, he has 2 frames on display. 1 is called "Lepton Upgraded Frame Set" selling for $$87.94 and another one is called "Lepton 9650 Frame Set" selling for $88.25.

If he didn't tell me he only makes 1 frame now, I would never be able to find where to buy it.

Anyway, I can make up my decision now.

Qooo, glad to hear you are finally getting to the bottom of the frame dilemma. The way the economy is going in NA you would think most suppliers would bend over backwards to sell their products!!

RCHover says they have the new version finally.

Yesterday I had a chance to look at my friend's Lepton. He had bought the old version which looks very cheap to me. It looks like it is not carbon fiber black, it looks like it is grass green carbon. It stops me buying 2 sets of this frames from MJP and it is not cheap to me.

I might get the original Hirobo CF frame and do the modifications again myself. The Hirobo Carbon Fiber Frame material looks a lot better ... nice & professional carbon fiber ...

Still thinking ....

I just bought a 2nd hand Lepton from my friend plus I crashed my own frame ... so I am looking for buying 2 new frames for my 2 Leptons ...

I know Readyheli is a good eshop but they don't have upgraded frame set for Lepton. Most likely they only sell original parts from Hirobo.

The frame I am looking for is http://www.mjpcarbon.com/inc/sdetail/6859 .

Hi,

did you look already at this shop:
http://helihobby.com/html/hirobo_lepton_ex.html

Within the list you will find a Lepton aftermarket frame kit made from MJP Carbon.

When I ordered directly at MJP Carbon some parts a couple of month ago with the request to ship to Germany, I made the same experience as you - they did refuse to ship outside US. - Then I came to helihobby and took the parts I wanted to have in the "Notify me" list, because they were out of stock (as this frame is currently as well). After a short period of time I got the notification, that items are available and placed my order.

You might check the details of the frame and if this is the item you are looking for you should try the "Notify" list.

Kind regards, Rainer
