At 9000 feet Will it fly ???

I live in Winter Park, Colorad. 9000 feet above sea level, I have a Humming bird 3d pro with a Mini Motor 1215/20 and a 3s 1250 E-tech hp. I would think i have enough power but at full collective and full thottle it will only get about 2 feet above the ground
CAN YOU HELP
I just want to fly
Take Care

are you sure you have enough pitch dialed in? should be about +10

Yes, 75% is a good mid stick hover starting point. Set the tx so you have good head speed and then adjust the pitch curve to get the performance you want. Good luck, Crewdogg
