25F with 10-12 MPH winds

2 flights before the winds picked-up.

2nd Flight of a new config...HC RIGID Flybar-less Pantera with an OS-70.
1 flight on the primary ship...before the wind chill got the finger tips too cold.

lotta ins, lotta outs

No way. Not on your life. I would love to know who is REALLY flying up North-West where the temperature was -23 to -43 degrees fahrenheit today. It was 21 degrees fahrenheit (-6 C) in New York this afternoon and I still wouldn't fly in that.

Wayne - Fly it like you stole it! You're in good hands with Runryder!

Just got back home now. It was blowing 30 to 50 mph and around 44 deg with heavy rain! Wish I was still in Hawaii. Oh well, I now can finally build my own T-Rex 700 Nitro till it clears up hopefully?

10F, calm & Sunny...that's about my limits.

Heli...no problem with nitro. Engine makes GREAT power and blades "dig in" to the heavier air.

Had some problems starting a month ago when the fuel was the same temp as outside (22F)...fresh gallon of fuel had been in the detached/unheated garage.
Typically I keep the fuel at least 65F and never take less than 1/2 gallon for my 90-120 minute excursions.

IF you do hit...be ready with a basket!

lotta ins, lotta outs

I need to stop whining
All day I was whining about it being in the 50's. I even had to wear a freaking jacket to fly! After reading all the previous posts I decided I was lucky and will shut up. -30? NFW!!
