    Just put it somewhere, anywhere. don't over think it!
    if it can fly at 0 degrees F it can sit anywhere

    My understanding is that as a general rule it's a good idea to keep electronics "comfortable" meaning in the same living space you'd want to be kept in.

Its been through summer heat& rains, fall nights&rains and two snow storms. 10 min after getting home for giggles i put the found lost battery in (which still blinked 1 bar after all that time) it fired up corrected gimble , connected gps & spun motors !

    Well I brought my Phantom home from storage (-20 C) and I feel better. But it takes up a ton of room because I have a full-size protective carrying case made for it that's big enough to include the prop guards attached.

    God rule of thumb for electronics .... If you are comfortable so are they, however, in real life they can from an engineering standpoint, simiconductors are rated at -40 to 85 degrees C. Commercially.
    That's a very large range.

    Perhaps motor lubricants can be damaged in the cold even though not run? Different rates of expansion of joined materials, (plastic, glues, bolts, etc.)?
