    Hello everyone, I have a concern about flying my bird in thin air. I have never had to worry about this since I mainly fly in lower sea level altitudes in Arizona. I have a job coming up in Breckenridge Colorado and someone mentioned that I should consider keeping weight down with my bird since I will be flying in thinner air. Breckenridge is about 13,000 feet above sea level. Does anyone have experience or input on this one? I would appreciate any help.

    My system setup:
    Tarot Ironman 1000 X8
    DJI Wookong M
    iPeaka 40A ESC's
    Tmotor 3515 400kv motors
    16.5 APC Props
    Movi M5 W/Panasonic GH4
    2x Nano Tech Turnigy 6S 5000MAH Lipo

    Jose it should operate fine. If you are overing in the 50% throttle range that is. Fly smooth. Don't expect it to be a hot rod at here in Colorado. It will have better performance in the winter with denser air.

    Hey there Gary, thank you for the response on this one. I feel relieved now. I will fly steady and I'll make sure to post something after our shoot. Here is a little something we did with Honda in Las Vegas this Tuesday.
