Big snow in the Northeast today.  Any considerations for flying over end result tomorrow (assume snow done and wind OK)?

You can do great snow angels with a drone.

Warm up the battery. let it run for 1 minute or until it reaches at least 25C. Then hover it for another minute and then happy flying.

In PA we got 13 inches of snow but the temperature and wind gust of 18 miles/h, felt like 5F so I came back in and waiting for tomorrow...

Don't forget to show vids or pics

Warm up your batteries if you have electric blanket or electric seats in your car warm them up first.

I did a flight to look at the snow today after the storm passed. I will post the video later.  The only concern was very cold fingers. The P4P handled the wind well.
