X50 proper belt tension?
This is the first heli I have that has a belt. How do I set the proper belt tension? I read in the manual about a 3/16 deflection and on raptor techniques for a 1/4" deflection, but how do you know if the deflection is correct? I tried a ruler and pushing on he belt, but I thin the amount of force needed is also a factor. Any help from he more experienced out there?

I have yet to put the tail on my X-50, but I have 2 old Raptors. I usually just snug the 4 screws that hold the boom. Snug enough to hold but loose enough to twist. Pull back very hard on the boom. Let it go,and tighten the screws. They are very forgiving. Just make sure it isn't too tight like a guitar string.

This has always aluded me on how to describe it. How far it difflects depends on how hard you push. The teqnique of handging it on the boom then tightening works for you as a starte. but you have to loosen it up enough for it to move out first. Then feel how that is so you can think about it later when you have to check it. Knowing how it feels is important so you know it's not too loose. Sudden jerks when you give it a punch out sometimes can be skipping teeth.
