What's the best thing about flying in the winter ?
* If you start shaking you can blame it on the cold

* Less chance of overheating your engine or electronics

* Your blades are stiffer so are the dampners

* If the snow is deep enough you get to crash more often

* Another reason for drinking to stay warm

* At least your out of the house

* There's alot of places to keep your beer cold (for after flying)

One cold lesson learned...........
Although I'm no 3D pilot, only having reached flying circuits and eights, one thing I learned almost the hard way last winter is don't even think about flying with gloves on, at least for me. I was flying one of my 600E's in the cold with gloves on and it's amazing I got it back on the ground in one piece. The loss of sensitivity was so great that it was like I never even knew how to hover. Now I fly with the tip of my index and thumb fingers cut off in a pair of work gloves. I even tried rubber gloves and it was still very uncomfortable flying.

. How do nitro heli's do in the cold?
I would say go for it.. however, this being your first nitro.. tuning a 3-needle engine can sometimes be overwhelming especially for someone who is just getting their feet wet into nitros. If you have someone who has some experience in this department, I highly recommend that you get in touch with them. Otherwise you might have a bad first experience. Other than that, Nitros do well in the cold just as most of everyone already mentioned. Personally, I prefer flying in cooler weather just as long as my hands can stand it.

Hope that helped
