Due to extreme cold conditions here in the Uk at moment I've noticed a few thigs.
1) Li-po batterys are v poor in low tempratures unless kept warm. (ie sat under radiators at home, or on car dashboard just on top of heater)
2) the plastics become very brittle at low (-) temps. I've cracked my canopy, & today broken the undercart of my trex (not a heavy landing compared to 2 autorotations I had soon after buying it), which within normal temp ranges would have been little problem.
WARNING-trex dont like low temps:D
