I don't see specs for min max storage of the phantom with it's camera, not batteries.
Just put it somewhere, anywhere. don't over think it!
if it can fly at 0 degrees F it can sit anywhere
It gets to minus 45 degrees Celsius outside and in my storage shed were I'm keeping the phantom through the winter.
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.
Lets put it this way, lost one in the forest in june, got a call week ago it was found. No damage, battery 4ft away, filthy dirty! Its dec now! 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 !
Store it whereveru want
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.)?
