The neoprene used on the Wet Suit is closed cell so it does a good job of keeping the heat in the drone and seals the battery tight so no cold air can get in behind the battery and freeze it. This allows us the confidence to fly in below zero temps now.
Some of are clients in Alaska are surveying the icebergs with the Wet Suits in temps 30 below. Freezing hands is still an issue as it feeling the sensitivity of the drone with gloves on is very tricky. The gloves make it hard to feel the joy sticks but after awhile you get the feel for it but none the less tricky. With the Cold comes the visibility factor and not having an all white drone really adds to being able to see the drone from far away. Wet snow is much heavier and is much more taxing on the battery but the wet suit does a great job at keeping the water of the drone so you can still fly but only for a shorter time.

There is something magical about flying your drone when that snow is falling down and the world goes into a white glaze.
