    Personally I have flown in -25 to -30°C, (around -13° to -25° Farenheit) and had no issues whatsoever, did not seem to affect flight time all that much. I was getting around 15 minutes on a stock P2 non vision.

    Your battery needs to power your phantom and the RPG system.
    In my opinion your fly time is ok...

    My P2v+ weighs 1425 grams, I'm also getting around 13 minuets flight time. Temp is around 7-13 degrees C here in the UK at the moment. I'm looking at ways of reducing weight.
