When I fly my HB CP in colder weather (between 20 and 30), the controller seems to "drop out". At a hover, the main motor stutters for a second here and there, it appears to be brushes in the main, but this happens with multiple motors.
Is this normal? Has anyone else had cold weather issues with these controllers?

btw.. I also have a pixie 7-p for the tail that appear to have no issues with this same weather.

I don't think the problem is the contoller. If you are using NiMHs or LiPolys they don't like cold there voltage under load is very low. If you keep the battery warm until you are ready to use they work better.
