How are you all going to store your batteries for the winter?
You going to pull them out now and then and give them a little boost charge or/

Dang it. I knew that. I was just sitting here and reading posts about people wanting their P3's back before winter and it got me to thinking about the batteries. LOL
Thanks!

I plan on flying during winter!  Maybe not all of it, but I'll fly.

Why store for the winter?  I'm in PA, we get cold and snow, flew Inspire for worst of last winter, this one both craft will be going.

We bought these things to play with, if the air doesn't have much precipitation, it's an opportunity to fly.

Agreed, was out today in a park and there were TONS of Wooly Bear Caterpillars out........pretty fuzzy and 3/4 black from the ones I saw here in Kansas.  But I have 4-WD so all I need is a platform to take off from and I'll fly!

Boy I hope so!  Curious to see how the P3 does in the cold.  Last year I photographed a snow mobile race. The warmer of the two days saw a high temperature of 7 degrees farenheit. I spent most of both days in the track infield and I have to say the 5diii really surprised me. No cold related issues - of course the spare batteries stayed in my pocket to give them a little warmth. I wouldn't take the P3 out in conditions that extreme but definetely looking forward to some flying this winter!!
