I agree with you. I have flown at 0o C at 2300 m. ASL, calm whether, frozen lakes, good landscape. Had no problems with Solo, but decided to land @ 30% battery. Flight time was around 10 min. (I usually land @20% battery with flight time around 13 min - Solo, GoPro and gimbal).It will fly just fine. In fact you'll probably notice a sense of having more power. It will be more responsive and faster. The cold air is more dense, so the props have more air to bite into. That said, the cold will reduce the capacity of your battery, so keep that in mind. Some phones/tablets don't take well to the cold either.
Oh man, I remember those 5 in 1 cameras with great glee - whenever someone stopped to watch me fly they were always more amazed by the camera than the aircraft.eDVR 5-in-1 is what I carried and modified CVS cameras were the bees knees just 10 years ago. Lots have changed since then.
Cold air has more molecules per unit of volume. (Cold molecules move less, allowing more room for others). Thus more dense.Cold air is less dense (humidity) than warm air...its why aircraft fly at altitude. Less wind resistance. Am i missing something here.
Where is your village located?Keep your batteries warm. It seems obvious, but pack your Solo and gear into your backseat instead of your trunk. If you're going to trek any distance while outside - something I actually do quite a bit - put spare batteries inside your coat.
It really does make a big difference. I've been making aerial videos in my Village since it was possible to strap a camera to an RC plane (heck, even before that - I've put cameras into everything from free-flight gas planes to sailplanes launched with a histart to humongous hot air balloons).
Off topic here, but it's seriously amazing to think back over the years at what we've considered small or "portable" cameras. Anyone remember Kodak "Disc" cameras? Those were cheap, and pretty much considered the smallest, lightest photo systems available. Horrible picture quality - but you'd be amazed how many of them actually became airborne!
That is incorrect. Air density is not the same thing as humidity. Air density increases as temperature decreases. And density also decreases as altitude increases.Cold air is less dense (humidity) than warm air...its why aircraft fly at altitude. Less wind resistance. Am i missing something here.
I might have to take a refresher course in thermal dynamics....did they issue some revised laws. Could of sworn the attic Artic use to be classified as a desert..
