I have not gone flying since the Thanksgiving holiday. I know , I know what's wrong with me It has been pretty cold in these parts.

What are people using to keep their hands warm? I have seen the hand warmers that enclose your hands and TX which look like it may work well. I also was checking out thin gloves. The only ones I came across were running gloves. I am not a runner and past experience tells me that thin gloves wont do much. If anyone has any pointers I would greatly appreciate it. I am hoping to go flying this afternoon. There is no wind today and there are a few flakes falling. I need to get out and go flying. I can't take too much more of the sim and I need to get my fix

I have a radio glove for when its below 40. When it's above 40 I have some cheap ($10) mechanic's gloves with the fingers cut off. I wasn't sure I would be able to fly with them but they were laying around with holes in the finger tips so what the heck. The big thing is keeping the wind off your hands. Between flights I use two Zippo hand warmers. You can get them on-line for $12 a piece.

I just found this product that looks interesting:

https://www.hobby king.com/hobby king/store/__19674__hobby king_Universal_Heater_System_USA_Warehouse_.html

For 15 bucks it may be worth a try. As long as it doesn't melt my fingers. TH\here is a TX glove that this may work in conjunction with on their site as well.

I cannot find a place to buy the Mitt from(Raydiowarm)

I put hand heaters in my pockets. Heat my hands up nice and toasty, then fly for 6-7 minutes, and back in my pockets.

We use fire down here. You put sticks, twigs and logs in a barrel, set it on fire and enjoy the heat.

I just make the flight and go warm up in between. I have used a trash bag over the transmitter when it's windy to keep the windchill off.

Helinutandy,
I love NE as well. My brother moved to Tucson and its just the opposite out there. The winter is nice but can't stay outside for long in the brutal summer heat!
Anyway, you're a bit colder than we are in SE mass, but I fly all winter long with a transmitter mitt and hand heaters in my pockets. I find just the body heat of my hands keep them warm inside my mitt. After changing batteries, I warm my hands in my pockets with the hand warmers and then its into the mitt for the 5-6 minute flight. I've flown down to 9F comfortably with the mitt.
Just have to bundle up a bit, but once you get used to it, it's well worth it. The sim gets boring after awhile.
