I dont mind snow, I just HATE wind. Thats assuming your not daft enough to actually fly a model in the snow. ALTHOUGH....................it would be interesting to see how much icing a model could deal with.

In the full size world we have a limit of how many mm of ice/snow we can get before turning for home. Measured by various different means.

There is no problem flying in the snow....heli prefers it,....much smoother hovering (due to cold air)...just that the hands start to freeze very very quickly hehe

Yeah the dampers gets stiffer once its cold outside, so Im not sure that the cold will make it smoother.

Speaking of cold hands, I bought the most AWESOME TX mitt. http://www.raydiowarm.com the heli one. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC, only prob is condensation on the inside, but it seems the same for all mitts.
Quality and design are SECOND TO NONE.

Thanks for link Si!
There is another problem as well. When you stand on the field outside the Moscow and it is let say -7Ñ plus wind, than you should have two pairs of underpants, three sox and very heavy jacket and stuff, otherwise you are risking not to have any kids......
I just can't wait when it will be at least 0 here!
There is no way to fly in lower temperature limits than this.

Flying today was really rough, jeans, t shirt and sun glasses not to much wind and a hat to stop my bald spot burning. How was it up you neck of the woods?

WINDY but I braved it anyway, was lovely and calm all morning when I was at work. Finished work at one and the wind is up and fog seen in the distance. WHAT AN ARSE

Oh well

Why is it that work will always ruin the best part of a flying day. If you have to work in the morning the weather is crap in the afternoon and vise versa, shood be a law against it

Yeah no kidding, but I do have the benefit to fly my model heli at work. Just go outside the hanger on the airfield. But if we go training or get a call out that obviously leaves me less time. Biggest annoyance is when I am at work with F all to do and forgot to take my heli in. oh well

I work next to heathrow airport so flying at work is a definite no no, and my flying field is the same distance as it is from home to work but the oposite direction which makes midweek flying hard but you got to make the effort.
