Guys,
Know a few of you are as thick-skinned as I and don't let a little cooler weather keep you inside on the sim.

Looking for info on transmitter mittens or what ever they're called.

I've been using finger-tip-less gloves...but rather keep'm warmer.

Radio is a Futaba 9Z on 72mHz.

thanks

lotta ins, lotta outs

I have been using a mitt for 20 years in the winter. Planks and choppers.
The one I use is called a "radio glove". A few mods to the glove that makes me happy is that I put a few packs of chemical hand warmers in the glove. Toasty warm and I can fly all day. Fingers and hands are warm but extra care with the TX in the glove should be observed when you fire up the ship. Make sure you have thr hold on, and when you put your hands in the glove you don't hit any other switches that could make things go bad.

I use this one http://jtmodels.com/mitts.htm it works for me to -20. Any colder and I usually stay in.

How cold does it get in Martinsville? I'm good to about -10 before I start using one. Depending on how long I'm out. Celsius of course.

Guys,
Thanks for the info...like the looks of the mitts at...

http://jtmodels.com/mitts.htm

Think I'll get "Jeff Lebowski" embroidered on it!

Herc...Martinsville is 40miles south of Indianapolis...so 25F for a low last night. I recall last January/February we were at single or low teens (f) for a few weeks...right when I finished my first Pantera...if it's 10F & sunny...I fly!

Looks cool enough for a mitt to me Dude. I never would have thought it got that cold there. Learn something new everyday.

Looks like my mitt will get lots of use this winter!

Canadians should brace for coldest winter in almost 15 years: forecast

Michael Oliveira, THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - After years of warmer-than-normal winters that spurred constant talk of global warming, winter this year is expected to be the coldest in almost 15 years and should remind everyone of what real Canadian cold feels like, Environment Canada said Friday.

With the exception of only small pockets of northern Canada and southwestern Ontario, this December through February is forecast to be one of the harshest winters in recent memory across the country, said senior climatologist David Phillips.

Notebooks: Don't pay for shipping
"It is somewhat remarkable that we're seeing the same situation from coast to coast to almost coast - from Vancouver Island to Bonavista, Nfld., we're showing the country as being colder than normal," Phillips said.

"The last time Canada had a significantly cold winter was back in 1994, more than a decade ago, and this may very well rival that one in terms of coldness."

1994 started with a bang of winter weather and Canadians across the country shivered through temperatures as cold as -42C - and that was before factoring in the wind chill.

little mitt with hand warmers made the day.
Flew a few flights with toasty warm fingers.
What is in your wallet? All the little ships are home and warm.
