logo 10 3d versus lepton
you may say that they are not competitors but I'd still love some opinions.

I really don't know about this but I figured the difference in battery costs will begin to equal the playing field on these two helis.

Opinions on which would make a better new flier. I hesitate to spend the money on the lepton but it sure looks nice.

what do I want to do with it??? anything I can learn.

Since you are asking as a new flyer, you may want to consider the replacement parts cost of each. The Lepton parts are currently quite high. Logo 10 parts have been coming down and are now quite reasonable.

If these are your two choices, both are very nice helis. Obviously the Logo 10 is a bit larger heli which generally makes learning easier. However, both helis fly "bigger" than they are.

I just about bet you're going to get some responses that say to get a 30 or 50 size nitro first.

The lepton is a bit more involved of a build than the logo 10 3D.
You will find the logo easier for a new heliman to build and setup. I've had both, and the lepton assembly was much more in depth. Just make sure you spare no expense when it comes to good JR servos on that mikado
And take your time building and go over the directions many times. Always feel free to ask runryder if you have a question!

Like the Trex..
The lepton manual third step is slapping 50 parts on the frame at once to join both frame halves. The manual can be quite confusing if you don't pay VERY GOOD ATTENTIOn to "what goes where".
I swear tha japanese and Thai's think we are ninja helicopter assembly artists, and the things build them selves perfect every time (by the looks of their manuals)
However, both helis fly "bigger" than they are.
Ain't that the truth!

There is a reason for this. A fresh rappy 30 set up in beginner mode via the manual, will teach your grandma how to hover..

I should have included my current info about myself. I am not that new to flying. I currently have a rap 30 and a trex. In the works is a rap 50 titan. I can roll, loop, flip and mess around a bit up there. next is to work on my inverted orientations.

the real reason is that I'd like a winter project after the rap 50. complexity is actually a good thing.

what I am most curious about is flight characteristics... positives and bad tendancies. Great point about the replacement parts!! Aside from the flight performance, I was wondering about batteries for the logo any 4s configs for this one?

I had a 4s4p logo 10 3D that did very well for mild 3D. No tick tocs all day, but back then I Wasn't this hard into it either, so I'm not sure.
It would loop, roll, flip, tumble, do a few piro flips, funnels on rails.. etc... All using HS85 metal gears servos! Upgraded to JR servos, and everything became alot tighter and crisper.

Not sure about flight with the lepton yet. Still working on it. (see gallery)

Make sure you get the Logo 10 3D if you get one. They NEED those upgraded parts to do 3D PERIOD. I had a stock logo 10 and was trying 3D with it, and paddles were slipping in the seesaw. You need the upgraded seesaw on the flybar or it simply wont hold. The stiffer head and longer flybar as well as lighter flybar paddles and alu swash all help a great deal too for 3D. I ended up buying two more logo 10 3D's after the first logo 10 original. Those upgrades are a necessity before you flip it.

indeed ugly landing gear...nice for cam ops...but sure is upgradable for a measley $7
