I keep hand warmers in my pockets for pre and post flying warmups. It doesn't work the best but it gets me by on my kind of budget for now. Maybe next year I will splurge and get myself one of those fandangle Raydiowarms you all be talking about.

I ended up trying a small pair of gloves (My girlfriends). Soon as I lifted off the ground I ripped them off with my teeth. I just didn't feel comfortable with them on.

It was flurrying a tiny bit and cloudy this afternoon. I only went through three packs and headed home because I wasn't feeling 100%. I would have loved to gotten a fire going but I can't where I fly. I just replaced my esc and elevator servo and wanted to go for a few test flights. I've had a tail wag that disappeared for a day but is back and it's driving me crazy. I may hold off on the mitts for now because I spend most of my time in between flights and my hands don't get uncomfortable when flying for eight minutes or so. It will be a little but warmer before you know it....

Mine helped very little without the heating pads as its likely to be cold when you get your hands in there.

Try the zippo´s or peacocks.
They are very warm and hold a long time with a little fuel.

The peacocks are longer lasting from what you read, i cannot tell about, i use only peacocks.
They are working 5 hours full heat on halve filled.

Raydiowarm is a very good solution for cold weather flying. I love mine, but when it gets really cold as it sometimes does where I live in Sweden (same latitude as Anchorage) I have found that the best way of keeping the hands warm is to use hand warmeers positioned on the inside of the wrists, kept in place with knitted muffs similar to these:

In combination with a pair of well insulated, very soft and flexible gloves I have been flying in temparatures well below 0F without difficulty.

It can be very difficult to find gloves that provide both insulation and good enough "stick feeling". I use Hestra Windstopper gloves as pictured below.

I don't use anything but my bare hands to fly with
Once you get acumated your hands are warm any way
In the winter I fly in temps from 0f to 10f degrees above
