Don't get me wrong, I love Nitro. My question is does everyone else's 600N get so oily after a flight that it is literally dripping from the bottom of boom and drive gear housing?

I have pressure tested tank, good to go. No apparent leaks from muffler or back plate. Cant possibly be THAT rich, or can it. Heli flys fine. Just wondering if this seems normal to others or not?

I have a TT X-50 that gets very little to no fuel residue after several flights.

I guess its a good way to keep things lubed, Lol!

Sounds very rich to me.

Is the engine itself dry? There should be zero oil on and around the crankcase. There may be a tiny bit around the venturi or the rotor in the carburetor, and that's about it.

Sorry about the X-50. I cant imagine it is that rich to make that much of a mess without it affecting flight quality.

Yes the engine is dry. Heli runs and flies super! I could try and tighten up the high a click or two and see if it makes a difference.
