Sony camera struggled with the White Out conditions but the Phantom 4 pro delivered with flying colors.

Notice how much better you can see the Drone with the Trauma 1 Wet Suit, it made a big difference in keeping the drone in visual sight as visibility was about 40 ft it

Winds were whipping in all directions , sport mode was needed to fight the winds.
Hand catching was essential because of the winds.

Good combination of Rain, Hail , Snow , waiting for the gusts of wind to die down to take off was the most difficult part of the flight next to staying in Visual Sight with a spotter.

Some snow on the lens of the camera also contributed to the lens focus.

Just the fact that battery is now sealed may be allowing for the battery to be kept much warmer .
We will be testing the temps when the weather goes below zero.

Cool video. But you may be a little generous with the "blizzard" and "white out" declarations. Where I'm from we call those flurries.

But the suit looks cool.
