    Can I fly my drone in a blizzard? It's gonna be windy and snowing and I wanna fly my drone. Can I fly it really quick? I want to take it up 400 feet. Takes some pics of the action. I think the drone will be fine. Happy flying.

    Absolutely. Take it on up. It will be fine.

    P.S. I am joking because I think you are.

    I'm heated. I had it all ready yesterday at the beach. Sun blazing and no wind. Annnnnnd I forgot my memory chips. Donkey! I checked like 5 stores and no chips. I struggled. No luck. Happy flying. Lol. -Joe

    If by memory chip you mean sd card, I have one in the drone camera at all times, and 3 more in my case. So I guess I've made it so I cant forget them.

    I made it that way to. This isn't supposed to happen. I have lots of them. Yeah I meant SD cards.

    I have a small wallet for them too. It's supposed to stay in the back pack. I don't know how it happens. My wife blamed smoking something.

    As for the blizzard flight, you will want more air flow, so it is best to remove the top part of your shell. And the longer you stay up, the more it adjusts to the conditions to improve flight. :rolleyes:
