Fuji Engines
I have never physically seen a Fuji engine although Tower has been selling them for years. They are not especially cheap. Does anyone have anything positive or negative to say about them? For example, how does the 24EI compare to the Zenoah G26EI which is $30 less costly? Any feedback here?

RE: Fuji Engines
I don't have either of those, but do have two Fuji 43 EI-2's. While they aren't the most powerful, they are very well built and look like they will last a long time. They do weigh more than allot of the other engines. Both of mine are easy to start, run very well and I have had no problems with them. They turn a Xoar 20x8 at 7300 or so. I noticed that the parts are pricy as well, not just the engines.

RE: Fuji Engines
Do an RCU search on the engine name and read a few threads and then make a decision. I'm not going any further with it than that.

RE: Fuji Engines
Also get ahold of RCIGN. I believe he still sells his reworked version of the Zenoah 26 which IMHO would be your best bet.

RE: Fuji Engines
After owning TWO Fuji's and realizing how horribly underpowered they are for the outrageous amount they weigh, I realized they were better off in Tower's warehouse, or in the hands of others.
Just my experience, and my opinion. Nothing more.
