Hello,

I plan to shoot at high altitude, around 4200m high.
I'm interesting about approx estimation of loss of lifting power...
I'm running with electric power, 800mm blades at 1440rpm at see level; expect to run at 1600 for losses compensation...
Some of return from real experiences will be apreciate.

Kinds regards, Fred

I live at 3600 mts above sea level, have flown at 4500mts above sea level with 6lbs payload and 710mm blades, it will fly fine.

Do a search on high altitude flying. Tabbytabb flew at Mauna Kea Summit at over 13,000 feet with his Maxi Joker not too long ago.

Here were shooting for a commercial flying at 11,500 feet ASL (3500 meters), AUW 28lbs, not as good as SL but still really good lifting power & handling.
