Hopefully someone can throw some light on this one.

I have a PCM10X which doesnt seem to like cold weather, 2 weekends in a row now i have been out flying in temps below 5 degrees celcius.

Whats strange about that you say ? well after about 10 minutes or so in the cold the touch screen starts to act up. As soon as i switch the radio on it asks me nearly straight away if i want to activivate the servo hold function ? if i press no it asks again, if i press yes then the normal screen appears !

The strange thing is when im using the radio at home practicing on reflex xtr it doesnt happen and it haddnt happened all during summer.

Has anyone come accross this fault before , do i need a new screen as i suspect and how much might that cost ( will email mcgregor uk about that bit)

many thanks

Hi there.
I think the problem you have is a known "weakness" for the PCM10X radio, and I do not think it is something wrong with your radio.

I know that the folks in my club do not use their 10X's at this time of the year (all winter in fact) and in this time they fly their planks with a regular 6ch radio.
-I'm told that the reason why they do this is the touch-screen at low temperatures and the radio does not behave properly when the temperature drops toward winter here in Norway.

Happy flying.

RJ
