Flew around a bit on X-mas eve to see how it would do in the cold. It was 17f. The gimbal was a bit jerky at times but other than that it did very well. Battery never dropped below 64f.

Merry Chrstmas all how your warm and happy.

The first 30 seconds of that music I was waiting for scary murder clown to jump out! Very nice you have such a close open area with great scenery to fly in.

Flew a bit at -12F couple days ago.  No problems, but took it fairly easy.  Don't like pushing things when it's that cold.

What was your battery temp when it was -12f? I thought about flying last night when I got home but it was -2 here. Didn't want to push my luck.

The battery was brought outside from the house in my pocket, so it was "warm".  I didn't check it while I was flying because it was hovering over my house in a static position, "watching me" blow snow off the driveway for a few passes.  I did play around a few minutes over a field when I brought it down, before doing some close manuevering on the porch to land.

I'm always gentle on the controls, but even more so when it is well below freezing.  I've seen my Phantom throw some error when hitting too much throttle under really cold conditions.  Usually, it is a weaker cell dropping too much when hit hard with current flow.  Not unexpected at all.

If you upload your flight log to Air data you can see the battery log for the time that it was on. You might be able to see that information from the flight log in the DJI app but have never looked there.
