I took my T-Rex out side and tried to test fly a new motor. It was about 25 degrees. After 20 seconds in the air the machine was uncontrollable.
After a struggle with the little monster I got it on the ground.
The cold temps shrunk the ball links and the swash plate and fly bar would not move. Not sure what a safe temp would be but beware.
(The ball links are not tight indoors At 70 degrees.)

Don't everybody attack me but, maybe the HS 55 servos do not have enough torque to keep up with extra friction on the ball links created from the cold temps.

Are the guys flying outside using HS 56?
