So lets say Im flin a 109E at 5000 feet,does this improve the ablity to do hammerheads and split S and so forth.

The other way around.

At equal TAS, your airplane will get consistantly less manueverable the higher you are. Lower air density=higher stalling speed.

So split S, loop, turns, etc would all take more time to do at high alt. The rudder would be affected as well, so it would take longer to do hammerhead.

Not to mention that if using CEM you should set your mix and pitch accordingly. Coarser pitch....leaner mix.

Plus ground effects will give lots more lift at super low alt.Not modeled in Fb...I dont think.
