Remove the bottom air scoop, add a Jett or Performance Specialities muffler and it will be above average. Don't look for 150, 110 maybe. Still a decent flying bird. ENJOY

Hi! I have a phoenix strega as well, and I want to know what size prop doe run? I have a gms .47 in mine and my brothers sportster is alot faster. I also put a muffler from an os .46 so it would fit, I've flown it 6-7 times and it flys well(just waiting for the snow to clear and it will get some more air time).

Be careful of the tail section. I had it fold... It is built up, not sheeted....
