I'm about to go out to fly my Phantome 3. I just checked the weather and it's 97 degrees and sunny outside and I'm in New York City. I will be going to fly out in a park. Will the heat be a problem for the Phantom 3.

Be prepared for hot motors and battery. Battery will take a while to cool.

I flew in some hot weather and my tablet overheated before my P3.  I used a sunshade now and everything is fine. :-)

Something I've started doing, and I think it comes recommended - when you've had your fun and you've landed your Pro, take the battery out once you've successfully shut everything down - gives all other parts enough time on their own to cool down.

Thanks guys. I flew in 100 Degree weather and it was okay. My Tablet did overheat and I had to land and use my iphone as viewing. After 15 minutes of flying, I landed, changed battery  and used my iphone for viewing. Everything was fine though. I haven't updated my firmware to the newest because lots of people seem to be having problems.
