    Following on from @damoncooper thread

    Inflight Battery Warmer | DJI Inspire Forum

    I have been working and testing something similar for a couple of months now. I have put it out to a couple of manufacturers for costing. I have cleared this with @The Editor.

    My reason for this is I have a project in march and expecting temps of -35Âșc

    I am trying to get prototypes made which I will send to people genually testing in cold weather before committing to a big run.

    They work really well and are quick and easy to install. A button hole will be made in the back to allow for tail lights to be fitted as in the picture. (the one is not the best but I am testing cheap to expensive ones)

    Pack warmers can be slid under the jacket on either side if its getting really cold.

    Anyone interested in testing please shout out.
    Any suggestions welcomed.

    I have been working on something similar using 4mm neoprene (wet suit). How are you securing the front edges (by the orange structs)?

    i took some rubber line insulation (dji uses same core materian on their stickers) added some cartonplast plust made a cutout for the batteries like the ones sold. until now they worked fine. i 3D printed myself a template for cutout pattern. double sided tap on one side and should be good. i also insulated front and back "holes" not only sides.
    here is a pic of one side insulation plate which covers the insulated battery side.
    i use 3M dual lock 70 heads for good hold.
