A few wraps of gas resistant teflon tape around the plug. then re-insert it and you will be good to go .

Over a half a year flying mine and not a drop of fuel leaking

I have always stored the Heli with the tank half full, or half empty, depending on how you view things in life,. I make sure the rubber bung grommets are always soaked in Nitro fuel. I have my 700LE now for 10 months and have no leaks from my fuel tank.

Hope this helps.

At the precipice, we change!
