How does it twist? while i don't have that heli the only way I know for a belt to twist is if the entire boom rototes around. Is the boom slipping? to make the boom tighter in the boom blocks try putting some take around the boom then putting it back in the boom blocks.

How do you know the belt is straight to begin with and that it's twisting?

Well, a belt that's attached to rollers on both ends can't twist. It can snag, bind or jump the roller, but it can't twist. You have something else going on. The tail boom doesn't hold very well on that heli and the tail roller housing is crappy.
