When I turn the motor it clicks. If I start it up you can hear the noise faster up until it sort of whines then it goes away and flies fine (so far) I'll land and noise has gone, very soon after it comes back and it clicks again when I turn it.
Does anyone know what the problem is, should I take it apart and maybe find something loose like a magnet? havn't taken motor apart before...

I had a Hyperion that did that. I took it apart and it was one magnets that was out of alignment.

We have already tried Hacker A30-12XL and Kontronik 15-16. They are both very good motors. We just bought Scorpian 880kv, cheap but not installed it yet.

I think the stock 4s motor is not a good choice for Lepton. We have already had more than 300 flights on A30 and 200 flights on 15-16 which are still very strong.

A lot of people here are flying the 30 26 1000kv Scorpion on 4s. I'll probably give it a go with 20T pinion or 19T if I can find one. Does that sound about right with the stock 60 amp ESC? I'm not sure where I can get a 19t pinion from.
It's really been flying well, even now when the noise goes away it really pumps. Its the only motor I have had in this Heli, maybe a new one will be even better...I suppose I'll take it apart and see what the problem is also...
