    I am once again impressed with this amazing bird P3A! Flew yesterday and went a total of 8240 metres and 3600 metres from my homepoint. I did learn that when flying in 40 km winds with -4 temps, guessing wind chill was much lower that one should wear gloves!! My fingers were real cold by the time I landed!

    Great Tony - I have been grounded last few days - torrential rain and 60mph winds sigh. Last Sunday was awesome though! 18C and lovely sunshine - the difference a few days make!
    Maybe I will get around to doing the DBS mod now!!!

    Great vid Tony, cold is better then rain and high wind speed all day.

    Been like this for a few days, hopefully tomorrow is better, want to take my P3 out for a spin.

    Did you have ice crystals formed on the propellers when you landed? ;)

    No not on the props but certainly on my fingers!! I could not believe how cold I actually got! It was my second flight back to back so I was out maybe 30-35 mins
