Getting back to the feel of the sticks, realized what a dramatic difference weather have on battery life, almost 5 mins of flight time compared to 2:30ish

Far as weather goes, yesterday was perfect, 70’s sunny no wind, only going to get colder from here on out.

That's for sure. We're already into single figures (Celsius) overnights now.

Exhilarating footage.   Got to love that 90s background song.  

The extremes in temperature definitely affects flying time.  Seems like winter temps have a larger negative effect on batteries.

I think if outside temp is 50-65 degrees its perfect, in LA don’t think low temperatures will be an issue, finding a location to fly close is hard too loud

Same as here in southern Florida.  We basically get two seasons, Spring and Summer.
