Default Belt ?

How tight is everyone running the belts? I set mine per the video by SAB but it sounds like it slips when doing fast hurricanes into funnels. Then the tail blows out.

Tough to provide a good measurement of belt tension. The edge of my idler sticks out ~1mm outside of the frame, but I fly GENTLE circuits and such, I certainly don't push my heli hard at all.

This is where mine is at as well ... not enough stick time yet with it to tell you how it works.

Mine was like that, 1mm out, but it really depends on the spring tension. It was horribly under the correct tension.
It has to be stiff enough so that if you use your fingers to push them towards each other (at the open area above the battery), they should not not touch.
My tensioner is about 5-6mm out, because my spring has a different tension.
