Does any one know sites where sells lepton stretch kit?
Or what tail boom fits on lepton? I am looking for longer tail booms and belts for my lepton EX.
Thank you.

I encourage everyone one to go to your local hobby shop or your favorite mail order store but you can get it from MRC too.

Yes, I went to that site, but can't find anything on the stretch kit. I even went to the parts list page and couldn't find anything on it.

Yup, I agree, you cannot find jack crap on that site, or any other distributor for hirobo parts without knowing the part numbers, or the size of the whatever it is you want.

I promise, I would support my dealer if I could quikly navigate the website with much more ease.

try this:

http://www.world-of-heli.de/en/hubs...ch-kit-set.html

I believe with little search on the open web, you can get the parts seperatly to do this stretch kit cheaper. You dont need there longer main blades from what I read either.

You better do some research, as I have read alot where the longer blades are not needed to fix your tail authority issues. That is alot od doagh for all that crap. You need only the boom, supports, linkage, tail blades.

Yeah I read the same thing, just curious about the longer main blades though.

edit: I'm not worried about the tail authority issue, more like swinging a larger blade for stability and lifting (possible AP application).

Thanks guys.

Just in case people who want to have the stretch kit, below is the part number for MRC web site.

MAH463 MAIN 9/40/463mm ECO $79.98
2504030 TIMING BELT 40S 2M 1250 $17.00
0304071 LEX CARBON TAIL BOOMPIPE $47
0304066 LEX TAIL BOOM BRACE CARBON $47
0304069 LEX VERTICAL FIN CARBON $27
0304070 LEX HORIZONTAL FIN CARBON $27

It's too pricey just for the stretch kit.
I wish some after market companies make the stretch kit like Trex product.
Wouldn't it be great that MRC down price for the parts then, a lot of pilots would turn into Lepton.

BTW, http://www.bfcarbon.com/lepton site will save over $50.
Thanks Flying Brian for sharing a good link with us.

if you put those part number in MRC search area, those items are in stock. You just need the boom, support, and belt. MJP carbon also carries the fins: http://www.mjpcarbon.com/lepton

Those Eco blades have a 9mm root. The Stock blades are 10mm. Would you need to add extra shims?
