I was wondering if you okes have had any loss of preasure in the fuel tanks when using a YS engine?

Reason for my asking:
Helis like Hirobo, JR, etc has a different outlet design at the fuel tank. They use a rubber that is compressed by a screw from the inside creating a perfect preasure seal.

On the Thunder Tiger main- and header-tanks, they only use a grommet. When that grommet gets dry, it does leak, and there is nothing you can do about it, where on the other, one only needs to tighten the screw a bit.

Don't get me wrong, this is NOT a Thunder Tiger VS anything post.

I have a Raptor, but currently use an OS engine. I am planning to install a YS though..

Greetings

My raptor holds pressure all the way till I have to refuel so it sprays everywhere. All kidding aside, the raptor tank plug including the header tank hold fine.
