I've found a transmitter mitt to work well - it does require some extra care in starting - be sure to use throttle hold, in case a stick gets bumped. I think I still have the plans / pattern for the one I'm using now. A clear window is of limited value at best - it doesn't insulate at all, and fogs up fairly soon, so you can't see the transmitter anyway.
Obviously, you've got to pick your days to fly, and be sure to have battery packs fully charged. Don't expect to get as many flights - the effective capacity will be less due to the cold.

If you look, the cars at the front of the drive were there the night before for a xmas party. You cant hardly see them. A couple cars are at top, but the snow on the road was so deep you couldnt even try to get out. The snow was so soft(champagne pow pow), the sleds had a hard time getting on step.

Wildcat was amazed, as you can tell, but shoveled like a sob.

..and yes, we kick a little snow outta the way to fly almost daily.
the snow rarely hurts electronics, and is a soft crash zone. Makes for good winter fun.

I like flying in snow. I fly at local parks and fields, nobody hand out in those area in wintertime. A lot closer than going to the club to fly. Snow is also save the heli on crashes.
