Is it the stock Fugi or a Zenoah?? The Fugi does not have much hp. If you want speed go with a 26cc mod. There are many companies that do mods. The M5 from Warehouse hobbies is a real nice mod. Very reliable at around 4 1/2 hp. Great price too. $259.00


M5 Power Head
Increased Compression
Relieved Piston
Raised Exhaust Timing
Copper Coated Base Gasket

I have seen the Fugi run good when its dialed in. Check out some videos on youtube if you haven't already. Have fun.
