Default Caliper 30 tail rotor belt tension question


I just recently picked up a caliber .30, its my first helicopter and I don't have much experience with it. While I have the basic set up right, I am having a few problems. My main problem right now (or at least one of them!) is the tension on the belt that drives the tailrotor. I set the tension to be pretty tight before I tightened all the bolts up. Every time I fly the helicopter, the belt gets very loose, and now it is very difficult to tighten it because the nuts are loctited on and I can't remove them or make them tighter. I can tighten the belt by loosening the tailboom struts and pulling the tailboom out a little, but as soon as I run the rotor up with the engine, the belt gets loose again. I am afraid that the teeth on the belt will skip if the belt is too loose. Should I be concerned about this, and if so, what should I do to rectify the situation?

Get the screws out that are loctited and put a one wrap of electrical tape around the boom and then tighten up the loctite should break unless you used the red stuff[X(]
