I was wondering if you can post the temp's that you fly with,
perhaps a temp for the summer and one for the winter.

In Fahrenheit and/or in Celsius.

For me: summer average +22 C
winter, coldest so far +0 C

A good day????......... is not crashing :)

94'C on the head although I haven't measured the head temp for a good while in favour of the simplicity in measuring backplate temp with my finger. Am just about to install the Carbsmart - a much better option seeing as in the past, I've had to land in order to check the temperature - very approximate due to the fact this is non real time so to speak.

Put your finger on the back plate of the engine and see how long you can hold it there.3 to 5 seconds is OK.

Temperature's ????????????
Sorry, I guess I was not clear.
I am asking about the temp's YOU fly in, the outside temp's 'of the day', the weather.
Thanks, but nothing to do with a engine.

it's all in how you look at it I guess....+0 or -0, LOL.

A good day????......... is not crashing :)

On the plus side water will not freeze and on the negative side it will. LOL.

Here in Michigan I fly in 25 degree weather in the winter and up to 90 degree weather in the summer. 25 degrees is cold. I try to pick days that it is 35 or above. We have had several this winter. Yee haa!

15c to 38c / 59f to 100f for winter and summer flying. It gets a fair amount colder than 15/59 but I wimp out (Southern Born and Bred !!!)

I think any temp above freezing is fair game in my book.

Celcius vs Fahrenheit

30 is 86
20 is 68
10 is 50
0 is 32
-10 is 14
-20 is -4
-30 is -22
-40 is -40

It is -32 Celcius here right now

I was breaking in a couple OS50 Hypers outside on my test bench and the engine had a hard time reaching 80 degrees fahrenheit. It was only -18 outside at the time but the touque sure made it feel warmer

Cheers

Been there done that. When the fuel has a hard time getting to the eng. it's too cold for me. Becomes more trouble that it's worth. And I have a TX mitten. Can't seem to fly with gloves.

I use gloves, but cut the thumbs off.
I can only fly a short time till my thumbs get numb, but it is way better for me to be able to feel the sticks.
It's -10 C , +14 F here, I would go out but it's to windy, and snowing.
Gotta love Canada's winter.
I sure wish I was way down south, with +20 C.

With TX mitten you can feel the sticks and you have the box in your hands at all times. Worth the $50 I paid for it. In fact your hands can sweat in it. So I keep it open a little to get some cool air.

Not meaning to Hi-Jack the thread but.... will temperatures ( high and low ) have the extreme effects on pereformance on these models as it has on full size machines?

I just thought I would ask here, it seemed like the place

Oh Yeah, It FLYS

Battery performance is dramatically effected but engines tend to work better if it's colder near sea level because the air is nice and dense so you get a better charge as well as giving the blades more air to play with.
