Default How tight should the main blades be?

I seems that the bigger the helicopters with the corresponding bigger main blades, the tighter the main blades should be. These are my question:

1) How do you tell that you have optimal tightness?

2) How do you tell if the main blades are too tight or too loose?

3) What are the detrimental effects from too tight or too loose main blades?
