Default Belt tension

I have just bought a second hand Logo 800.
What do you think about the belt drive tension ?

Mine is the same. Its a loose riding belt by today's standards but works fine. I would say its fine to fly like that.

If you're determined to tighten the belt, you will have to elongate the front tail case holes, opening them up toward the rear of the frame, so that you can pull the tail case back a few mm, since the tail case is not adjustable for belt tension.

I also would like to have a tighter running belt, but I run at 2000rpm on 16S and it holds fine.

Bear in mind, the belt will be looser in colder weather. Once it warms up (not sure where you're located), the belt should tighten up by a couple mm's.

Ok thanks for your answer.
What is strange is that I have a 700 XXTREM and the belt is much more tighten but not the same frame so I suppose it is normal.

That's definitely loose compared to mine. I'm guessing it got stretched in an "incident." Might benefit from a change in belt or a history check being second hand.

That's strange about the temp. I'd think it would stretch in warm weather the same way the gears expand when they heat up?
