Test hovered my Cricket this morning!

Still needs a few tweaks, but it hovered.

Did not feel quite the way I remember but it was neat to see one in the air again.

It was probably about 70 degrees, yesterday.

Today it is supposed to go a bit higher.

It is dead calm, sunny, and warm out right not-but I have other things to do which prevent me from flying.

Heliminion,

Come on down!

Nah, I've come to realize flying in these flippen cold (sometimes freezing), dank, limited visibility, overall depressing conditions will make me a better heli pilot. Besides you fair-weather boys are always the first to retire to your man cave when conditions are less than optimum (temp. plummets to 69 and/or the wind picks up to a blustery 2-5 mph). You may have tans and valley girls BUT we have CHAPSTICK and THERMAL UNDERWEAR!

Sad, but very, very true sir!

Good luck in the chilly weather.

He'll, I remember flying on days SO cold, we used to start the helis in my warm garage and drive them to the field bladeless and running in the back of my open pick up truck. Too cold outside to get them to fire any other way. I'm talking 10 - 15 below without the wind chill! Wish we had today's electrics and micros back then but hey, we had to fly, right? Couldn't give it up the whole winter. Then again, we used to build back then too.

We used to have the car running and set the models engine as close to the exhaust pipe to keep the motor warm!

Those were the days

I was preparing for the Tangerine. Hovering my GMP King Cobra in the back yard under lights, cold and misty foggy. Heli kept losing power and acted like the motor was going lean. Carried it into the basement to try to figure out what was going on. Guess what, The Rotor Blades had iced over and would not lift the Heli off the ground. I let the ice melt, carried it outside and it hovered perfectly.
