Sheesh - now mine is leaking at the plug in the center hole! Wasn't leaking before, but after 2 weeks with no flying, it was pouring out of the stupid plug this afternoon!

When I fueled up all was fine, but with the engine runing I was about to carry it to the pad to get my first flight in when somone pointed out that fuel was leaking out. Hell it was pouring out. So that was a short flight.

I defueled and went back to work.

I guess I'll try the CA thing.

How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

OK - did the CA thing. In hindsight I think I would use epoxy next time because I think it would be a better solution, and maybe a bit cleaner too!

This guy did a really nice job with epoxy:

buy this part....
for the trex 600 tank,

http://www.heliproz.com/prodinfo.asp?number=386083

it is the same size on the 700 tank and fits perfectly

cut both nipples off the black part that squeezes into the tank grommet, tap it for a 2.5mm bolt put some CA on the bolt and screw it in and mount it. Ablosutely no leaks....

3,2,1,...+1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14...
