There was discussion on the UOA section about altitude, etc. I ran across this paper. Has a a lot of different interesting points in it. I would assume it is about drone engines.

Believe it or not this was written when Obama was in office he must have missed this "“Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.” .

Good paper, but no surprises - less dense air from high altitude causes power loss in NA engines. That's why they were supercharging WWII aircraft engines in the 40s.

Thanks for posting! Trust me, there is a significant power loss at high elevations. I live at 5,600 feet. When I lived at sea level, truck was awesome! At least fuel injectors compensate, people with carbs, well they are adjusting at various elevations. I physically run at various elevations and your lungs feel it. Especially in Santa Fe 7,500 feet or the Sandia Mountains 10,0000 feet. Your body develops a lot of red blood cells to adjust.
