    So. It was cold today... I know that it gets cold everywhere and colder... But for me, high teens with a sub zero wind chill.... Then being on the beach waaaasss a little to much for me....

    Had enough blood in my fingers for a quick flight, hope you enjoy....

    Very nice, looks a beautiful place. Did the battery flight time suffer from the cold?

    Yup - that's my problem this weather.... no blood in the fingers and can't even feel the sticks !!:p - Doesn't make for delicate close proximity flying.
    Then when you get back in the car it takes for ever for the feeling in the finger tips to return.... can't imagine how bad real frostbite must be !!!:eek:

    Nicely done...Did you put battery covers on? Did it help with run time?

    Makes me glad I live in California! :~)

    I did not have the battery covers with me... As for flying time I don't think so.. According to my wonderful "flight data logger" I was airborne 3 times at a total of 17 Minutes.. Then at that point I had 29% battery power remaining....

    Yeah I thought so! Its always sad that the last 20-30% can't be used much, except for coming back.

    That's good to know. Extreme cold really doesn't effect batt run time. Thanks.
