    Hello again!

    In a couple of weeks i'am going on a vacation to Italy. Since we are going camping i'll be sleeping in a tent.
    Offcourse i want to bring my phantom to this beautiful country. My only concern is that i want to keep it in my car
    Because i can lock it. But temperatures can get quite high in the car. I've read the specs on de DJI site wich only
    mention operating environment temps (0-40 c). On a hot summer day the temperature inside the car can easely rise above
    this. My question:

    Does anyone know the max storage temperature of the PV+ ? Because i don't want to damage the electronics inside!

    Thanks for the input.

    The Phantom should be fine in the car but I wouldn't keep the batteries in there.
    The high temp might damage them and there's always the risk of rupture and fire.
    From the Internet (So you know it has to be true) "Storing battery at temperatures greater than 170 degrees F for extended periods of time (more than 2 hours) may cause damage to battery and possible fire."

    As for the Phantom I wouldn't expect any problems unless it get's hot enough to warp the plastic.
