yea that 40 sounds hard to handle...I fly in winter. Sometimes it gets all the way into the 40's around here.
Kirk - what props do you use on your P2 series when it's in the teens? I know most prefer the 9450s in general, but I wonder if there is an advantage to 9443s in brutally cold weather? Any opinion?... and plastic is a bit brittle once you get down in the teens and below
I only had the standard 9443sI flew last winter, and plan to fly even more this winter. Main problem IMO is wind. It tends to be windy in the winter. But yeah, warm up those batteries before flight!

Yeah i'm in South Dakota its currently 10 degrees with a -9 windchill I'm not going to try it. I fear that in those cold temps after a while the plastic may become brittle.Something I read on here last winter that I thought was strange so I tried it! Do an IMU Calibration in the cold, by setting the bird out side, not the battery for 20 minutes then put the battery in and immediately do the IMU, suppose to set the flight temperature lower so it does not take as long to warm up. Seemed to work, of course I am in Savannah and cold is 40!
Start an indoor, quadcopter racing leauge!I'm pretty much grounded for the foreseeable future. Gonna snow the next 3 days and the temps aren't getting any warmer nor is the wind going away and then next thursday even more snow. It's looking like I might not fly for a good month if even that.
