we bought a 15000/30000btu raidiant heater from home depot it hooks right on to your 20lb bbq propane tank its is really easy to transport and it works so well we put it on the flight line and stand back about 5ft you could fly in a t shirt with this thing we will be flying all winter now it will run at 30000btu for 14hrs on one tank it cost 79 dollars just thought i would share this with the diehard winter flyers

Now that is what I'd call proactive global warming

very cool. The club in my area is building something similar but it's more homemade running on fire wood. They are also enclosing a large shed type structure and placing the heater in there. We will be able to run in and warm up inbetween flights. The building is right behind the flight line. I'm looking forward to using it.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

What I would like is some kind of device that will keep the rain off, and drop the wind speed to something sensible.

take one of your EZup's and attach 2-3 sides and put the heater in it.

That's my idea!! Been using one of them for winter flyer for about 5 years. Really works great except when the winds blowing. Keeps the fingers warm but you still freeze your a$$ off.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?
