How many of you went flying today? The heat index is suppose to be around 110 for the next 3 days way to hot for me to enjoy it :(

Flew yesterday in 95° temp and 90% humidity. Sweated my butt off as I showed a guy how sweet it is to fly a drone! He was wanting one for his campground/resort, to go find late canoers/floaters when they didn't show up on time... He's sold on the idea!

Pretty much ANYWHERE is hot right now. Mom lives in Montana and she's complaining. Step mom is in North Florida and she's complaining too... Told them both to suck it up! Neither one of them has a thousand cows to feed & care for every day regardless of weather, so stop whining! They both talked mean to me, like I'm 12 again... 🙄

Oh Man! I flew my P3P in the living room for the first time a few days ago just to knock the dust of the motors. As for flying outside I have been grounded for several weeks now. Not only is it hotter than 40 hells here in NC the humidity is drowning us and I just can’t take it anymore in my old age.

It’s even hot in Alaska right now. We be breaking temp records for late June and most of July so far! Nothing compared to what you are going through though. 75 F is hot for us, we like to complain too 😎
75 degrees would be welcome but for Alaska that is hot

When it's hot I fly from inside the car with the motor running and the air conditioning on. I can get over a mile range with M2Z and P4P when flying with LOS through the windshield. Occasionally I will also fly from within the car when I don't want to be seen by the public to mitigate attracting attention. All flight prep occurs inside, then I'll set the drone outside, turn it on, get back in the car and takeoff when nobody is nearby.

CAREFUL: When Daisy is in heat we have to keep her in the house. Just curious, how many are typically in a drone litter? I think one flew into my Bug Zapper Light the other day.:rolleyes:
Varies with breed... I hear the P4 is bad about small litters! 😁

Cool! What part of NC? I am in Gastonia right near Charlotte. I am going to be going to Garden City Beach SC Aug 3 - 17 to do some surf fishing and I bet the ocean is going to feel like bath water. Hopefully I will get some flying in to. :)
