Anyone know how this is done properly? Tail boom is warm after flight and I was told this was a sign of rubbing and that the tail belt needed to be properly aligned. I am 3 whole months in on this heli hobby enjoying every second but it seems like everytime I get one thing perfect another thing is off. NEED HELP

Warmth could be just the sun hitting a black tail boom. Are there signs of wear on the belt? Can you hear it rubbing when you turn the head by hand?

All it should take for alignment is sticking it between the two gears, and giving it a quarter twist. After that as long as it isn't loose, you should be good to go.

Well, you could try tightening the belt a little more. Sorry, I don't actually own a B400. Maybe the belt just rubs the inside of the boom a little on this heli? I got nuthin'

The manual tells you how to check belt tension just follow the directions. I have 2 of them and never had a belt issue
