Hello, flew the spark up on a hill in high winds and strong snow fall.  In a 10 minute flight with recoreded video, mananged to salvage this  video, the spark was tossed in every direction and could not get more  smooth shots, and on top of that it was very cold for me..

I had a PL filter so i can bring the shutter speed down a bit.

The video is taken in Romania, Prahova.
Speed of the video is 24fps. 1080p.  

Thank you for watching!

I own a general store and deal with cash money. I use them for money but they mostly add up.

Ok, my bad, I have a different understanding for "blizzard" and "strong snowfall". ;-)

Must be cold, how long was the flighttime ?

Nice video. I don't think I could bring myself to put my Spark up in the air in that.

Nice video.

Visiting my parent's house in Northern Illinois, I find I'm liking Oklahoma's idea of winter.

That looks like it was very fun.  I see you must have warmed up in the car during the flight.  Does the snow possibly get into the motors or are they somewhat protected?  I have been trying to do some flying in the snow but I get very cold.

I was wondering if the GPS signal was affected by the snow?

Hello, it was freezing, especially for my feet. I was standing in 10cm snow. As for the motors on the spark i would say they were ok. The drone was not even wet. I dont have much experience to tell you more, because this was my frist time using it in the snow. Take good care!

Hello, the signal was fine. It doesnt effect the snow at all.
