    I am new to owning a Phantom 2 Vision and was wondering if cold weather has any effect (besides lower flight time) on the P2V? I was wondering if the camera can withstand the colder conditions (around 10-15 degrees F). Any suggestions? Thanks.

    DJI specs say the whole kit should be good down to minus 10 C (14F). Others have flown colder, but found their phones died from the cold before their aircraft did!

    Lipos have less performance in cold weather, and you'll want to avoid cold and moist conditions (like dense fog) as you can very quickly get ice on the leading edge of the props and lose lift.
