    Today not so cold (-2c) and some sun, perfect to go out with the bird.

    Warm battery, no wind, no snow...ready to fly.

    After around 15 minutes, my IPhone switched off (it was 66%) and off course I lost contact with my P3p. Certainly the cold.

    Hopefully it was 400-500 m from me and the RTH worked perfectly and I saw my bird coming back. I took the hand for landing.

    Happy end :))

    Any advice for tablet or smartphone in cold conditions? I have to admit that I have no cover on it
