OT WARNING

Boy, sometimes I really feel for you Canadians. But then I remember your snowboarding season is about twice as long as ours.

Have you glow guys ever considered getting an electric heli so its not such a pain in the butt to fly when it's cold out?

Guys be carefull flying in the cold, I had a plastic throtle arm on my OS 60 brake into, two years ago do to the cold. It broke at the top of a flip, made a nice fig. 9.5... Dont forget to add the wind chill to your temp.
