This is the first winter season that I have even thought of flying in. Now that it is Fall and getting colder I am thinking about how fast my hands are gettig cold. I have seen the "Pilot Gloves" that Vario sells and I have seen the thermal boxes that cover the Tx and hands. However I am interested in how the heli will react in the colder weather.
What kind of changes will I need to make, if any?
Does the cold weather effect the gyro?
Plastic gets brittle when cold, what possibilites are there for breakage?
What is the lowest temp I can safly take the heli out in?
Any other advice would be good too.
BTW, I am flying a Raptor 60 with an OS engine and a GY401 gyro.
I am soon going to be getting my Vario Benzin. How well does it fly in the Cold of winter.
