Expertly designed and precisely constructed using the most advanced CNC components, Leopard Brushless Motors adhere to the highest and strictest quality standards. Leopard Power Model Co. has over 15 years experience manufacturing high quality precision hardware, and is focused on ensuring the consistency of their products. Constructed from beautifully anodized aluminum alloy and top-quality components, Leopard motors deliver optimum performance, quality, and reliability at a price much less than many other premium motor brands on the market today.

Leopard LC-series brushless motors feature an extended shaft which protrudes out the rear of the motor. This allows the user flexible mounting options without having to disassemble the motor to reverse the shaft. The user can either (1) mount the motor in a traditional manner against the front of a firewall and use the included bolt-on prop adapter, or (2) mount it against the rear of the firewall with the shaft extending forward. This mounting option is most common in sailplanes or racer-style models and requires you to use a collet-style adapter available separately or sometimes included with your model.

● (1) LC8072-6T 280kv motor, pre-soldered with 4.0mm male bullet connectors
● (1) Set of matching 4.0mm bullet connectors for your ESC
● (1) X-mount plate
● (1) Bolt-on style threaded prop adapter

Great motor!! Very efficient. 50cc equivalent!!

I recommend using this motor in a 50cc application, but you could probably go up to 65cc. On 12S keep props to 19x6 and smaller. Perfect motor for 10S applications if running larger props. Running a 19x6 prop on 12s and I get somewhere around 130 amps at 6000 feet. Be careful on the kv though as it is higher than the other motors listed. If you want to run larger props than 19" on 12s I recommend the lower kv versions of this motor. Motor is very efficient compared to other 50cc motors I have used. It doesnt get as warm. Really great quality. About 90 bucks cheaper than the avian motors and in my opinion a much better build quality.
