I assume you live in High country (5000+ ft up) and your not taking your plane to the stratosphere.

I highly doubt any RF will ever simulate any changes in altitude. But by adjusting your plane though you can simulate air denseity changes to match your home altitude.
  • Smaller prop with less pitch
  • Less lift on the wings
There is an old thread somewhere to simulate the altitiude correction.

I would not worry to much about air density changes. As knowing your planes orientation and the correct command to adjust it is more important than being perfectly seasoned for high altitude flights.
Even pigs and bricks will fly with enough thrust.
