We've had amazing snow here in the UK last few days and I wanted to get some aerials of my house and surrounding area.

I hooked up my P3S and it powered up fine, found sats, took off. Within a minute I had disconnection issues - red warning 'disconnect' and no feed at all. The P3S flew fine and responded to inputs, hovered steadily, etc. No flight or control issues at all.

I changed the battery (assumed it might be caused by cold battery) and next flight was identical, not even getting a feed when the P3S was right next to me on the ground. It took off and flew around fine but no feed. Cleared phone and used Litchi but same issues.

I went back inside the house and the feed returned within a couple of minutes.

Is this just 'too cold to fly' conditions (sub zero but much warmer than it has been recently) or is something sub-par on my P3S?
