    Thanks
    it was tricky as the wind wanted to kick up about the time I got ready to take the pic and I didn't want it to drift into the trees behind it
    I wanted to get one before it got down into the teens and single digit temps

    Last winter and this year I trimmed a sticker/decal and covered each vent on my quad which should help from hot/cold shock and crack solder. Also you really don't want any warm or hot internal parts coming in contact with any show.

    I didn't stay up long and won't be flying till it warms up some as they are saying it's going to get colder(it was 31 degrees when I was flying)
