Hi gang - anyone have experience with flying the P4 in cold weather, i.e. 20-35 degrees F? Or below? What kind of battery life did you have? Did you have any other problems? Thanks!

I fly my P3 in 25-32 degree temps with no problem, just keep the battery warm before flight and you might want to let it hover a minute or two to get the battery warmed up before flying off.

The p4 does well in even down to 14 degrees F but I would recommend keeping your batteries warm. As I have not done more than 5 cold weather flights... that being said, I had no problems but maybe 5 min less flight time.
