I flew two tanks through my Hawk today. Cleaned it up with a rag and glass cleaner and stuck it back on the shelf.

About 6 hours later I come home from being out and notice puddles of fuel underneath the heli. I can't really see where it is leaking from, I have a cap on the muffler port that I put on after I was done flying. All the fuel tubes only have about 2 gallons through them and are all snug on their respective barbs. Didn't see any fuel residue on any of the tubes except for some spotting on the one going from my Kwik-Fueler to the carb inlet.

Any ideas?

You can get a fair bit of fuel that gets inbetween plates and bolted joins etc that runs out sowly

Fuel Leak
You don't happen to have a TT.39 do you? They are bad for leaking around the front bearing. Mine does that too.

It's normal, don't worry about it. I just sit mine on a rag.

Drunk Monk is right, dont worry too much,
just have a check whilst hovering if your skilld allow you to, just to see if any fuel is dripping, if not then it is ok

All The Best
