Not so much actually. At -3 deg the camera tilt was hanging up, the sticks weren't responding correctly and the battery voltage dropped rapidly. I fly without gloves so I can feel the controls and my fingers froze in just a few minutes. But the sun was out and it was a beautiful morning.

Nice, I run a PV2+, a P3pro and a Osmo+!

How do you like your Mavic Pro?

I migrated away from DJI. I don't like having a Chinese company in a position to dictate when, where and how I fly. I moved to Yuneec. No apps, no phone, no foreign control, keeps flying if a prop breaks, parts and batteries available and cheap.

I just picked up a Parrot Disco for some fun FPV flights and longer range exploring when the weather gets back into the 20's, 30's.

Yes, we have invented ways around there control, longest amped flight over 10miles one way, some are getting as much as 17-18 miles one way on the P3P
The Mavic has a limit of 58,900 ft. And then the RC disconnects takes 3 extra batteries for those distances. Of course

They have really changed there software and it requires parameter mods now.
