i am trying to find the minimum operating temperature for the P3P.  The specs show a minimum of 0c or 32f.  i live in Northern NH so if that is actually the minimum my bird will be parked from late November until probably early April.  A high of 10-20f is not at all uncommon in the winter. I am curious other peoples experiences and thoughts. I would love to do some winter photography.

I think I've read of really, really long warm up times in very cold weather.
The controller has a gyro built into it and really cold temps interfere with the gyro which is a physical device.
But IIRC, this was around 10F and colder.

I have seen some videos from very cold places so its definitely dooable..

Take care of the batteries though. Have a way to keep them at about 20c before flight..

OK thanks.  Good point on the batteries, I will keep them in the truck - with truck running while I am flying.
