    Hey all,

    Just curuous as I haven't taken my P3A out for a flight in a month or two. Living in the arctic the weather is now colder and snow is settling in here. Wednesday we hit -19 Celcius with a windchill of -30 Celcius. Today is warmer at -5

    I am hoping to take my P3A for a Winter flight to get some photos of the area before it gets too cold.

    Which leaves me wondering what is too cold for the Phantom that flying shouldn't be attempted? My other concern is Cold and Plastic may result in cracking and snapping if it were to crash.

    Has any one flown their birds in extreme cold temps? What were the results?

    Thanks,

    JD
