    If I leave my P4, controller, charged batteries, etc. in my car all day--which may get very hot--are there any problems taking it out and flying it right away?

    Considering that on a sunny day where the ambient temperature is 70 degrees the interior of a car can reach (multiple variables can alter this outcome) up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit in only half an hour it would be advised not to. The electronics are designed to work optimally within a range of temperatures and the battery especially is sensitive to overheating. Just my two cents :) Safe Flying!

    Not recommended imho, especially where you live, but it all boils down to where you live and your definition of very warm.

    Especially for the batteries....I'd let it cool down to ambient temp.
