High altitude flying/operating experince?
In the Beginner thread I have a post about a Sierra and Evo.40 at 7000 ft - I may just need to better tune the engine, but if anyone could go there and look for:
"Do you have experience with Top Flite Sierra and Evo .40?" over there, I'd sure appreciate it!

I've been flying e powered foam for a couple years, and ailerons recently with no problem; finally starting to attempt to fly the tail dragger converted Sierra, the last step in the saga to flying the champ and possibly hanging it up as far as fuel goes.
Then back to all the possibilites of foam, Guillow conversions, etc.

The engine will operate about the same as if it were at sea level. It may tun a bit faster due to the density change. Other factors that effect the engine are humidity and temperature. It is not like a regular gasoline engine or a diesel engine where asperation would be a problem. That's why the trucks all have turbo chargers, takes care of the altitude problems among other things.
I would fuel it up and go fly. Do the same things like backing off a couple of clicks to enjure you do not go lean in the air. I think you will have no problems.
