Default Superiger 51 needle valve gasket

I'm having trouble getting my Supertiger .51 engine to run reliably. It has been quitting in mid-flight, I've noticed the rubber "O" ring on the inside of the needle valve is no longer there and I see some "oil" residue when the engine is running around the needle valve . Is this the problem and I need to replace that "O" ring to get a better seal ?

This is the needle valve in question http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFY19&P=Z

Thanks in advance.

I was able to locate another "O" ring and spring from another needle valve that I had in storage. Used this to fix the problem.

Thanks for the fast replys and help...
