Flying? Snow intrusion things like that?
Make sure you wrap up well and take a flask of hot tea with you
Keep your batteries warm until you are ready to use them.
I found this chat interesting.
But, I didn't think we were supposed to put Tea in a flask. :?
When it looks like below, stay inside.
It looks like a layer cake :lol:
If we have another "polar vortex" winter like last year, I will probably lock up my Vision+ in storage and max out the Netflix subscription instead.
However, I'm sure any days it creeps above 30F with no wind I will be itchin' to get some flying time. Maybe I need to buy something like this:
I'd prefer something with bigger windows, but if I bring along a propane heater it could be a toasty little shelter while the Phantom buzzes around in that crisp air, eh?
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I live in S. Fl so what do I know 'bout snow?
But one thing I though of is if you are flying during actual snow fall could there be an issue with visibility, i.e. 'white-out''?
And a flask of Doc Mcgillicuddy's wares to keep the tea warm...
wear a wooley hat and big coat with gloves too
One thing I regret. Here in California we'll be switching back to Standard time ( off Daylight Saving time ) this weekend. After that it will be dark when I get home from work. No more after work flying, in daylight anyway.
I was given a pair of gloves that will actually work on a touch screen last Christmas. They're waiting in the wings. I flew for fifteen minutes yesterday morning at around 7:00 AM and I couldn't feel the tips of my fingers for an hour or so... It was only around 38 degrees or so, which is pretty tame winter weather in these parts... :shock:
With the "Winter from hell" we had last year, it snowed and settled, and snowed, and settled, and......it piled up. Worst I have seen in 30 years. With the crap Summer we had this year in Michigan we deserve a low amount snow and warm Winter.
